Singing about the periodic table

Most people here are probably familiar with Tom Lehrer‘s song – The Elements.

Well, for chemists here’s a new song about the elements – and the periodic table.

Actually, the video version – which depicts the elements in order on the periodic table may be useful as a memory tool for students.

The NEW Periodic Table Song (In Order).

Oh – there may also be a few more elements than in Lehrer’s time too.

Chemistry for kids

In my day it was Tom Lehrer and his song “The Elements.” It always struck me as a humourous way of remembering the name of the chemical elements – when you didn’t have a periodic table handy.

Gareth, from Hot Topic, has passed on a modern song “Meet the elements” from the new They Might Be Giants kids’ album, Here Comes Science (see video below). Coincidentally, Damian is also recommending it on his blog And Slaters Go Plop

Sounds like the album will be great or kids – especially with Christmas coming up.

Update:

Another song from the album: “I Am A Paleontologist”
