memory work for grammar stage chemistry

Recommended Posts

I am wondering what sort of memory work anyone has incorporated into grammar stage chemistry. I see in TWTM all sorts of memory work suggested for logic stage, but none for grammar stage. We memorize some poetry and Bible verses and some history facts.

heading into chem with my 4 kids next year.

 

My grammar kids will learn the name and symbols of element 1-20, 26, 29, 30, 47, 79, 92.

 

They will learn where the metals and non-metals are. There's usually a staircase-like line dividing the table: metals are to the left, nonmetals on the right.

 

It is NOT important at all to know what number a certain element is or its atomic mass. That's what the table is for and practicing chemists rarely know more than a few of the numbers or masses!!!!!!!!

The book Fizz, Bubble, Flash has the cutest poem about the periodic table that would be great for grammar stage kids to memorize. Plus if you search the web for chemistry poems you can find some good ones. IMHO the goal for grammar stage chemistry is to teach the joy of discovery and to get them excited about chemistry. Hope that helps!
