Mendeleev

Dmitri Mendeleev – credited by some as the Father of the Periodic Table

Today we learned more about how the Periodic Table came into being. The periodic table has a long history, dating back several hundred years. It is a fascinating document, rich with detail, finesse, and even conflict in its development. You can read more about the development of the periodic table in the History of the Periodic Table Reading. After reading this document in class, students labeled each of 13 events with the proper year before placing them in chronological order (#1-13) on the Periodic Table Timeline Activity.

Monday, students will transfer this information on to a self-constructed, illustrated timeline of important events in the development of the periodic table.
