The Periodic Table of Elements Quiz: Everyday Uses of Elements

Everything in nature, from the mountains and oceans to air and food, are made up of simple substances called elements. The elements are rarely found in their pure form. Mostly, they’re combined with each other to make compounds, which make up materials around us.

Elements and their compounds are an essential part of the objects we use in our everyday lives! Take the elements quiz below to match the elements to their correct objects.

Kids can go on a visual tour of the 118 chemical elements of the periodic table, from argon to zinc, with The Periodic Table Book. Catalogued by type, each element's properties and atomic structure is explained. More than 1,000 full-colour photographs showcase the natural forms of each element, as well as a wide range of unexpected everyday objects in which it is found, to make them relevant to a child's world. From hydrogen to sodium to nickel, kids will learn fun facts and be amazed.
