Here’s a great site that someone on my homeschool email list sent around:
The Periodic Table of Videos: http://www.periodicvideos.com/index.htm
A short, entertaining, interesting video about each of the chemical elements, plus lots of videos on various molecules and other interesting stuff. (Hit the “Extra Videos” link).
Here, for example, is a video in which one scientist makes a birthday cake in the lab, to celebrate one year of posting their videos, while the main scientist explains all the interesting chemical reactions that go into creating a cake!
Thank you, scientists of Nottingham University!
