Summer Fun

Chem4Kids.com
http://www.chem4kids.com/files/elem_pertable.html

This is a great site for the emerging chemist! The periodic table is colorcoded and explained. An explanation for each element is provided, including the number of electrons in the outer shell, the atomic number, and the atomic mass. Different scenarios of each particular element bonding with another element are discussed. A wav file is available to help students with pronunciation of each element.

 

Young Writer’s Workshop
http://www.meddybemps.com/9.700.html

Parents and educators can use this site to access several story starters. An illustration and a few lines of text are provided to help the young student get started. It won’t be long before the student gains confidence in his or her own creativity! One writing tip is for parents and children to take turns making up a sentence to create stories together. Students can submit their work and selected work will be published online.
