The periodic table is something that in my mind didn't show up in school until at least junior high. But here is proof that we are discussing the elements in fourth grade! Ask your student at home to share what they learned while also discussing with them what matter is! I think we can all agree these are complex topics, but it is exciting to see them introduced to the periodic table for the first time. I told them to be prepared... They will be seeing a lot of it as they get older!
