Learning the periodic table with your kids – or at least having them work on it? Last year while we were working on Christian Kids Explore Chemistry I put together some hands-on cards for our son to use while researching different elements. Today I am excited to offer this and they are FREE especially for my email subscribers – yay!!

The Periodic Table of Elements Cards  will help your child learn and record more about each of the elements on the periodic table – the atomic number, atomic weight, symbol, state at room temperature, melting point, boiling point, characteristics, and interesting facts. The set includes: 

  • a full page of periodic table of the elements, color-coded by subcategories
  • 60 pages full color-coded element cards based on subcategories
  • blank element cards 

Using the Periodic Table of Elements Cards

One app we have found very helpful in learning about the various elements is Popar’s Interactive Periodic Table of Elements. It is a FREE app in the iTunes store (search Popar Periodic) and it allows you to view information about various elements, combine elements, and discover different compounds. All you have to do is click on one of the elements and it will share all of the information needed to fill out each of the cards. Another great resource is this site which allows you to click on various elements and find out different information as well. 

The master color code for the periodic table of elements is the first page in the printable. Print off the cards you would like (they print front/back nicely so you don’t have to worry about reloading your printer all the time). 


The front of each card lists an element symbol and provides room on the card for kids to write the element name, the atomic number, and the atomic weight.

On the back, kids can list the following information: 

  • state at room temperature
  • melting point
  • boiling point
  • special characteristics and notes
  • interesting facts


The cards print off four to a sheet and after cutting around the borders, I used our paper cutter to get a nice straight line. :) We recommend printing on cardstock for added durability. Punch the corner of each card and put them on a jump ring to keep handy.

    Thank you so much for doing these. We are using Christian Kids Explore Chemistry this year. I much prefer to print and cut up, then make my own flashcards. Or have them do it… it wouldn’t look as pretty if the boys did it. lol! OCD mom… lol!
