This entertaining and totally unique periodic chart poster assigns a cartoon representation to each of the 118 known elements of the periodic table. The cartoon can reveal an association, as wtih Helium, which is represented by a helium balloon, looking very pleased with itself, and as with Oxygen, which is represented by a scuba diver, since a constant intake of oxygen is necessary for plumbing the depths of the ocean without running out of air. For other elements, the cartoon derives from part of the name, which is highlighted. For example, Nit(rogen) is represented by a knight, and German(ium) is represented by a jovial fellow decked out in traditional German attire. Each element is also marked by its atomic symbol and number. Also included below the title is a key to help you figure out each cartoon and understand why it was picked for that particular element. As such, the poster proves an indispensible tool for studying and memorizing the elements, since everything is easier when one has recourse to a mnemonic device. An excellent gift for chemistry geeks, students and teachers; looks great and functions even better in a chemistry classroom!
