The Elements Song With Pictures

The Elements Song has been around for a long time (I actually heard it on vinyl in high school chemistry). There are many videos of the song on YouTube. Some of which have nearly one million views. This version of the song on YouTube has a picture representing each element throughout the song.

Applications for Education
The pictures that accompany the mention of each element in the song could help some students remember the elements. Just be sure to remind students that the song does not contain all of the elements that are now on the periodic table.
