I teach 1th grade Academic chemistrey and have to admit that I do not spend
too much time on models of the elements. I do have the students "Adoptand
Element" and have the design a pamphlet like one that would be found in a
doctor's office advertizing their element. I've never played with marbles
or played Rummy either. I do try to stress the importance and use of the
periodic table.

Obviously others have done graphing expercies such as the "Periodic Trends
Activity: Pernell Williams" found on pages 75-76. In this activity the
students are asked to graphy m.p. etc., against atomic mass. Would it be
better to graph versus atomic number????

I am taking this course alone, and already I can visualize that I will be
missing. Itis tough to have a discussion of Science Standards with
oneself. I must say that a couple of the websides (particularly
http://intro.chem.okstat.edu) have been intersting.
