Periodic Table of Cookies :)

Looking for a fun way to learn the elements of the periodic table?  How about making each element into a delicious cookie!

Periodic Table of Cookies

Earlier this fall, our home school group got together at our house to put together this delicious science project.  Kids of different ages participated in putting together all of the elements.  

This project requires students to reference the period table the entire time.  Students have to find each of the elements and their symbols as well as the position on the table.  It prompts great questions and discussions about the elements that certainly wouldn't come up when simply looking at the chart in a book.

And the best part?  When it was all finished, everyone had a chance to pick out an "element" to eat!  This really is a fun way to visualize the periodic table in a memorable way.
