Periodic Table at Webelements
The WebElements scholar edition aims to be a high quality source of information on the WWW about the periodic table for students. ScientificAmerican.com has selected the WebElements web site as a winner of the 2002 Sci/Tech Web Awards.
This website helps bring the periodic table to life by offering uses and data about the elements highlighted with many photographs of the elements. A fun and helpful feature allows you to organize the elements in different ways or into unique groups—not just the more conventional groups, such as “Transition Metals,” but also uniquely unexpected groups such as “Elements at Walmart.”
POGIL uses guided inquiry – a learning cycle of exploration, concept invention and application is the basis for many of the carefully designed materials that students use to guide them to construct new knowledge. POGIL is a student-centered strategy; students work in small groups with individual roles to ensure that all students are fully engaged in the learning process.
