How Fun Is This?
Create Your Own Magical Unicorn Elemental Periodic Table Activity!
For years, kids have been creating fun comic book characters to make it easier for them to learn more about the elements of the periodic table. They could either come up with a super hero or a villain to represent their chosen element.
Now, there’s some competition from UNICORNS!
Unicorns are magical and so are the elements of the periodic table. This Create Your Own Magical Unicorn Elemental Activity is based on the 26 unicorns from the “Magical Elements of The Periodic Table Presented Alphabetically By The Metal Horn Unicorns” book.
Each unicorn acquaints kids with their own unique elemental magic as well as its amazing everyday uses. Alumna starts things out by introducing the very necessary metal, Aluminum, on her element sheet. Dr. Zinko rounds out the alphabet by presenting facts and other fun information about the metal, Zinc, on his. The Metal Horn Unicorns say, “No Metal – No Magic. . .and No Technology”. They are exactly right! Metals and other elements of the periodic table are in every facet of our everyday lives.
Using a sample Unicorn Elemental card like the one below, students will select an element from the Periodic Table and a Unicorn Elemental Activity Blank to create their own Unicorn Elemental Sheet.
The activity is a printable PDF file containing everything below.
