- Chemistry can really be a daunting subject. The periodic table for
example. Why is is called periodic? And why is it arranged in such
a strange way? Some things on one side and some on the other. Well,
Chem4kids explains these things in language kids (and adults) can
understand. Broken down in to manageable chunks so you never feel
overwhelmed. They talk to you, not down to you. When I found this
site I was looking for something else but I started reading and got
hooked. I read page after page without realizing that I was learning
kind of like when you are reading a book and you get to the good part.
It's bed time and you have to go to sleep. You are tired and you have
to stop reading but you want to finish that next paragraph, then the
next page, and before you know it you have finished the chapter and
are well into the next.
site seems to be so well written that (even though it is educational)
it's a good place to go for recreational reading. As long as you are
looking around for good reading about science, be sure to check out
