Periodic Tables Are Not Just For Science Anymore

You may remember having to learn the periodic table in Chemistry class in high school. There were so many elements to remember...kind of like all the New Deal programs. It made sense in Chemistry class, why not do the same for the New Deal. This is exactly what the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum has done.

We now have the Interactive PeriodicTable of the New Deal. You can use it on their site or email them for a cd disk or color poster. As the site states, The table presents major programs, players and events surrounding the New Deal and includes brief definitions or descriptions. The table is designed to be used in a number of ways: as a visual depiction of the complexity and scope of these events; as a way introduce students to specific players and events; or as comprehensive list from which teachers and students can select a topic for further in-depth investigation.
