It’s Elemental | Chemical Heritage Foundation

Student-Created Videos and the Periodic Table

"It's Elemental"  is composed of nearly 700 videos submitted by over 1,000 student contributors from 36 states. (This site won the 2012 Best of the Web Award for Best Small Museum Website.) Students were challenged to submit a video that explained the origins, disovery and/or uses of one of the elements. You can view the results on the site.

This would be a great activity for students to try informally - create your own school based table of videos!
