Dear Chemistry talkers,

Here are the URLs which have changed in the activities section of the
print guide. Other changes are in the reference sections of the
activities, and are available in a PDF document at
http://www.learner.org/workshops/chemistry/support/errata.pdf

Sincerely,

Workshop 1

Periodic Trends Activity: Pernell Williams
        Element Cards - cards which include data about elements 1-30.
        See Site: http://www.dgs.oxon.sch.uk/depts/science/elements/data.htm

        Summary
          Compare to the site:
http://chemlab.pc.maricopa.edu/periodic/periodic.html A searchable
periodic table. Clicking on an element produces a list of its
properties, which may be used in making the element cards in Mr.
Williams's activity.
