The Periodic Table of Video Game Characters


Hey, science teachers! This one’s just for you! Check out the Periodic Table of Video Game Characters created by the folks at I Heart Chaos. Pretty self-explanatory! But just for the record—it’s a periodic table compiled from video game characters as well as a few comics and cartoons. Yeah, I know—kinda cool!

OK, I just have one question: Why didn’t some brilliant mind come up with an entertaining way to teach me about these elements?

Anyway… Check out the new and improved periodic table shown below! And don’t forget to use the tools to zero in on your favorite element/character!

Classroom Connection:

Forget the boring periodic table of elements! Use the Periodic Table of Video Game Characters to interest your students in the otherwise mundane activity of getting familiar with the elements. Afterall, learning should be fun—and relevant—right?

Use the Block Posters web tool to create your very own Periodic Table of Video Game Characters poster. Or head on over to the Redbubblemarketplace to purchase this one-of-a-kind teaching tool for your classroom.

A shout out to the Science Department at Guanajuato Prepa in Guanajuato, Mexico—as this is where I first learned about this “cool tool”!

    The Periodic Table of the elements is perhaps the most central idea in all of chemistry if not all of science. Thank you for featuring it here.
