In recent years, a new innovative method for helping children understand the Periodic Table of Elements (PTE) has been trending—American Sign Language (ASL). ASL is the most commonly used form of sign language in the United States and its use has revolutionized the way kids can learn and interact with the PTE.
The ASL Periodic Table of Elements (PTES) was made possible thanks to the work of two teachers and their students at Lakewood Elementary School in Phoenix, Arizona. The team created an interactive version of PTES using ASL. This helps to make the elements easier to understand by adding visual cues and motions to the symbols used in PTE.
Using their system, students can now learn the visual elements of the table and how they fit together. By using the signs in ASL, they can understand the relationships between the elements without having to rely on the written names of each element. This has encouraged more children to become engaged and excited about learning the PTE.
Learning the PTES in ASL has helped kids to better understand the relationships between the elements. It has also helped to increase their knowledge of principles such as atomic structure and the relationship between atomic number and atomic mass.
The ASL PTES is a great tool for students to learn about the elements and how they are organized. It gives students the opportunity to gain an understanding of the Periodic Table in a creative and engaging way. Plus, it allows them to explore different elements of ASL and gain an appreciation for the language.
This is a great way to introduce kids to the Periodic Table while also having fun. It makes science accessible and enjoyable for all ages, giving them the opportunity to explore and understand the elements in a new way.
