Name:The Periodic Table of Comic Books

Brief Description of the Site:
The Periodic Table of Comic Books is a working periodic table that uses comic book characters to draw students into learning about the elements. The site is the work of two chemistry professors at the University of Kentucky.

How to use the site:
The Periodic Table of Comic Books will be a big hit with your middle and high school chemistry students. The opening page looks like any other periodic table. Students choose an element and the comic book adventure of that element begins. The element name is used in the bubbles of the super heroes. It may not have you giving up your wall chart, but students will enjoy the comic book / chemistry combination.
