The Periodic Table Material


The Period Table Material is a popular material among our elementary students. Note: the students should have a lesson on the big bang and atoms prior to using this material. 

First, I made a series of information cards on the elements using the create polygon tool in Apple Pages. 


I then cropped images from these pages to create the icons for the magnetic materials.
I then took this image and emailed to a local sign making company. A company like Fast Signs should be able to make a magnetic sign from an image file. You then need to cut out the pieces.

That's it. You can buy a magnetic board from any office supplies store.
