The Elements Song

At the conclusion of the unit of study on Atoms & The Periodic Table, Mrs. Ramos challenges students to learn one of two songs about the Periodic Table of Elements: "The Elements Song" by Tom Lehrer or "The New Elements Song" by ASAP Science.  Each song features the names of more than 90 of the known elements.  The song Jlynn learned features all 118 elements in increasing atomic order with a chorus that explains the features of the periodic table.  This goes above and beyond the standard for 8th graders and helps them to become familiar with all the elements that exist.
