I've been scouring the web looking for a great way to present the periodic table to the kids, and although I'm still searching and will eventually update with my eventual find, for now, I wanted to make a quick post about a great place to eventually visit if you're in Minnesota (aside from the Mall of America) :-)
Here is the link: http://blog.lib.umn.edu/admit/blogs/2010/09/i-studied-biochemistry-as-an.html
Looking forward to eventually checking it out with the kiddos some day.
Also, here is a neat version of the table found here: http://elements.wlonk.com/Elements_Pics+Words_11x17.pdf
As well as other wonderful pdfs that we will be using (http://thinkzone.wlonk.com/).
