Amazing Teacher Created Lesson Plans for Elements 4D

Cover of the elementary lesson plans for Elements 4D 

Since its launch on Kickstarter in 2013, Elements 4D has generated a new level of excitement in chemistry classrooms across the country. Bringing the elements of the Periodic Table to life, Elements 4D creates an engaging, one of a kind learning experience. Students can safely observe harmful elements, like Plutonium, Uranium and Xenon, and witness in stunning 4D how they chemically react with other elements, providing students with a visual knowledge-transfer that was once impossible. Elements 4D is like a portable lab.
While many teachers have created their own lesson plans around this 4D teaching tool, there hasn’t been an official curriculum released… until now.
