The pictorial periodic table by Keith Enevoldsen is part of a didactic project to diffuse knowledge, and help anyone to better retain scientific information with intuitive packed information. In addition to the element’s name, symbol, and atomic number, each element box has a drawing of one of the element’s main human uses or natural occurrences. The table is color-coded to show the chemical groupings and small symbols deliver additional information such as solid/liquid/gas, color of element, common in the human body, common in the earth’s crust, magnetic metals, noble metals, radioactive, and rare or never found in nature. This does not overload kids too many detailed numbers, like atomic weights and valence numbers.
