This color periodic table has all the useful information of other periodic tables, such as atomic number, element symbol, element name, and atomic mass. The rainbow colors of each cell indicate the element group.  The difference between a kid’s periodic table and other tables is the atomic masses have been rounded to two decimal points. This avoids issues of significant figures when learning basic chemistry homework concepts that may distract the student.

This periodic table is optimized to print on a single 812 by 11″ sheet of paper. Just download the PDF file and choose Landscape as your print option.
