Recently one of the teachers at my school came to me with a question. Once asked, I knew I would have to answer it. I knew also that it was going to be one of the most fun answers I’d been able to give in a while.
You see, she is a chemistry teacher. The question she asked was if I could figure out how to make a “Chemist Tree” for her classroom. Absolutely! I am sure of it! And boy, oh, boy have I had fun researching this!
We also discussed some chemistry experiments for the holiday season. Oh, yeah. I’m on it!
Below are a few of the fun things I have found from the “Chemist Tree” to holiday science. I hope you find some inspiration in this!
The first I one found is a Beaker Tree and it was on quite a few websites, including Never Lick the Spoon.
Another take on the Beaker Tree using garland, this one is from Bored Panda.
Add a few tubes to the Beaker Tree and this is what you get from ReSyn Biosciences‘ Facebook photos page.
Then there is this Gumdrop Version that could be made to look like atoms and chemical reactions. This is from Left Brain Craft Brain.
This Periodic Table Chemist Tree is a picture of what could actually be done on separate sheets of paper. For a project, I would give every student an element and have them draw or paint an example onto small squares of paper and them paste them onto a larger sheet. This one is from Science Notes.
I also found these awesome Periodic Table of Elements ornaments on Elements Cubed shop on Etsy. These are so cool!
These ornaments can be found at KillaKelkule’s Etsy page.
Or if you like these, you can find them on Etsy from Whimsical Furnishings.
I really hope these have inspired a few teachers to add colorful, fun, educational tree to their room. Or maybe just make or purchase some ornaments for home!
Coming up in the next post will be a lot of Christmas Labs that can be done with science students of all ages. Hope you’ll join me!
You can find these things and many other ideas for science education on my Education Science Pinterest Board.
Which is your favorite? If you were going to make a “Chemistree” how would you make it?
