This interactive periodic table can be used to highlight groups and periods, physical states, elements known in a given year, scarcity of resources, and many other interesting things.
The number of protons, neutrons and electrons in an atom can be changed in this interactive activity, which displays the atomic number, mass number and ionic charge. Atoms can also be selected from the periodic table.
By clicking on the animation tab and then clicking 'step through', you can access animations on covalent bonds and ionic bonds.
