A couple of chemists took it upon themselves to collect comic strips that mention elements from the Periodic Table and compile them on this website. The result is a "literature" tie-in to the science of chemistry and elements in particular, making them both seem less daunting and more fun.
When you get to the site you'll see a brief introduction and a Periodic Table of Elements. Click on any element and a new page opens where you can see the comic strips where the element has been mentioned or featured.
Once you've checked out the comic, if you want more technical information on any particular element, visit the sister-site called WebElements http://www.webelements.com/ .
NOTE TO PARENTS: Comic Strips may have controversial subject matter. In addition, this site contains links to other websites that I have not reviewed. As always, you should preview the content to determine suitability for your own children.
Oh! One more thing....
I'd like to remind you that Science-teacher-turned-homeschool-mom, Teresa Bondora offers lessons on the elements of the Periodic Table through a FREE e-newsletter that comes twice a month. Each one covers one element on the table and includes activities. They are made to apply to ALL ages (even little kids). Each installment has ideas for presenting it to your children and links for further reading and information.
