Elements 4D is an app that can show you different chemical elements and their reactions in an augmented reality way. Using the six well-designed blocks with various elements on each side, you can introduce an engaging way to learn chemistry into your classroom.
Elements 4D is designed to be an inspiring and interactive way to engage your students in a chemistry class. According to the teacher testimonials, Elements 4D works as a perfect tool to learn chemistry elements and reactions in the classroom.
“I can’t tell you how amazing it was – just to see them so engaged and wanting to do more.” (Lori Green8th Grade Teacher, Texas)
For lesson plans at various levels, here are some examples of how Elements 4D can be incorporated into the classroom:
- Install the Elements 4D app on your iPad/mobile phone/Android tablet
- Download the paper blocks and make them into cubes
- Open the Elements 4D App and point your device at the block face illustrating the element you want to view.
- Try with the combination: after step three, put another block to introduce another element, put the blocks together until they touch: if these two elements can combine, you will see the combination on your screen. If nothing happens, these two elements cannot combine.
