    Great Web Sites for Kids - ALA

    ChemWebOnline = K - 12

  • the chemistry site which does it all
  • if you are taking any Chemistry class, high school chemistry, A.P. level chemistry, or even college level chemistry, you will find this site to be an informative study helper
  • created where chemistry can be experienced
  • In order to make browsing easier, we have created three distinct levels for browsing this web site. They are:
    * 1) full blown graphics
    * 2) mid-range graphics, and
    * 3) text only
  • We realize that the world (unfortunately) does not have an ISDN connection for everyone, so we decided that this would make it easier on everyone
  • this page is written for Netscape web broswers, although it should be accessible to those with Microsoft Internet Explorer, or Mosaic
  • so get ready to enter...ChemWeb Online

    Proton Don = K - 12
  • "In this interactive Periodic Table quiz, students are presented with a copy of the Table and asked to identify various elements
  • the game is available with different levels of difficulty; matching symbols to elements and vice versa
  • a record is made of correct answers. Feedback is immediate and motivational."

    Chemistry Drill and Practice Tutorials = K - 12
  • "Online interactive chemistry problems here are divided into drill and practice, and word problems
    the wide range of topics provides a comprehensive tutorial environment for chemistry students
  • the tutorials begin with matter and measurement, elements and atoms, and move to more advanced topics

    The IrYdium Project = K - 12
  • "a new approach to the use of computers in chemical education...Chemistry applets and concept tests"

    p r e   -   k i n d e r g a r t e n
