Synopsis

Cool Cat Chem Cards Making Chemistry Fun by Caroline Griffiths, John Griffiths

FOR CHEMISTRY TEACHERS When did you last play games in the lab? No, not a particularly safe idea, but this pack of cards could bring a new dimension of fun to the study of the world around us in its most basic, elementary form. There are so many processes to be studied in the curriculum that the building blocks are sometimes forgotten. Various games can be played with the cards that are aimed at reinforcing the starting point of chemistry - the periodic table and its elements. The statistics included will demonstrate the similarities and differences and highlight how the macroscopic world is so very different to its constituent microscopic essentials between the elements. The pack contains 54 cards: 5 each of groups I-VIII, 12 transition metals, and uranium and plutonium. The front of each card states the chemical name, symbol, group, metal/non-metal/metalloid status, colour, fact, source, uses and hazard symbol (where appropriate). The back contains physical data such as atomic number, mass number, density, melting point and boiling point; more complicated data such as number of isotopes, electrical conductivity, ionisation energy and relative abundance in the solar system; as well as additional information on cost (Dollars/100g), discovery date and percentage present in a cat!!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
