Chemistry Resources

As we look ahead to Weeks 13-18 of Classical Conversations Cycle 3, we look forward to using some of the following Chemistry resources.
The Periodic Table of ComicBooks
Interactive Periodic Table (with descriptions linked to Wikipedia)
Periodic Table of Videos
Though the above items are free, our primary (purchased) resource for our Chemistry studies is Mr. Q's Elementary Chemistry Curriculum.  That's because, no matter how free something is, it still does not match Mr. Q's curriculum! 

For our complete list of free Cycle 3 Resources (including history, English grammar, math, and geography), please vist our Cycle 3 Resources page.  Happy Planning!


  1. Hello from SC! I had a question about using Mr.Q's do you integrate it into your curriculum? It looks wonderful but I wasn't sure to pick and choose or try and complete the whole chemistry "book". I've never used it before and I was trying to get a bit of advice before I jumped into it. Also, do you read/teach from your computer with the units or do you print them out for your family to read together?
    Thanks for your help!

  2. Hi Brandy!
    I nominated you for the Liebster Award - just sooooo blessed by the work you do!

    The Liebster Award is for small blogs (fewer than 200 followers) that can be described as dearest, sweet, beloved, kind, or favorite.

    The rules for the award if you’re inclined to share the joy:

    Thank the blogger that nominated you by linking back to them.
    Reveal your top 5 picks for the award and leave a comment on their blog.
    Post the award on your blog.

    Thank you so much for all the hard work you do to give other CC moms ideas to encourage their learning classically! Blessings to you!

  3. Great stuff, thanks!!! You are a huge blessing!!

  4. I usually keep the parent's edition on the kindle for reference and print out the lab sheets (in the parent edition) for when we do the labs. I print out the student edition in booklet format - each unit separately and plan for us to work straight through this book at one unit every 1-2 weeks. I'm not sure how feasible that is because I have not reviewed it in detail yet, as we've been celebrating Christmas this week due to my husband's work schedule. To print the student textbook in booklet format, go to File, select Print, select Booklet Printing from the Page Scaling drop-down menu. You will need to figure out what pages to start and end on and put them in the required field if you plan to print each unit separately. (Takes a bit of time, but I do this all in one swoop and file them away for when I am ready.)

    Here's hoping you will enjoy it as much as we do!

  5. You are such an incredible resource. You save me so much time and money!
    Merry Christmas!

  6. If you have an ipad. You can also just load the student version on the ipad and let the kids read it from there. We are only into Chapter 3 but its working well so far.

  7. Thank you! I appreciate this. I was disappointed there wasn't more on CC Connected for semester 2 science. This helps a lot!

  8. Thanks so much for your help! I appreciate all of the tips!
