The Atomic Emporium provides free information about the elements in the Period Table with a twist. Ben finds particles of elements listed on the Periodic Table in everyday objects and shares them on this website through photographs with text explanations. He also has a video on uranium that's fascinating to watch and his narration is totally engaging.

This free, fun, kind of off-the-wall site offers lots of free science experiments in cartoon format ranging from the fascinating and informative to the weird and unbelievable. Developed by an engineer-turned-cartoonist named Tim Hunkin, each cartoon depicts the experiment and tells you how to replicate it.

 My kids absolutely love http://www.uky.edu/Projects/Chemcomics/ Where each of the elements has its own comic book. The kids love it. There are also great ideas for learning the Periodic Table.
