All matter is made from just over 100 different types of atoms, which when combined, can make millions of different substances. These types of atoms are known as elements. The periodic table is a simple chart which orders all known elements in order of atomic number. It's often the first thing students are introduced to during any chemistry-adjacent class, and while it can look overwhelming, it doesn't have to be! These activities are designed to make it fun and easy for students to master the periodic table with the help of visual aids.
