Periodic table template

Make like a valence electron and come together with others in this periodic table of elements template.

Discover the Au standard for virtual periodic tables

Spend time navigating the periodic table to learn the groups, memorize symbols, element properties, or even learn what an atomic number is, and understand why Mendeleev arranged the elements how he did.

Pick up on positioning: Use interactive visuals to understand the way individual elements are cleverly categorized by chemical property.

Study systematically: Lean on the structure of the periodic table of elements to guide your studies (or your students).

Calculate compounds: Predict the kind of compound two elements will form by learning each element’s position on the table in relation to their similar properties.

Bond with your besties

Study the periodic table together in a virtual space and see real-world results to help solve chemistry problems, understand different groups, or understand individual elements. When you switch over to a FigJam whiteboard, everyone can connect via Lil’ Notes and Anonymous Thoughts and put their unique spin on things with Emoji, stamps, colored markers, and more. Collaboration? It’s all about chemistry.

Find study solutions from Al to Zn

Conquer chemistry like a scientist with an interactive, easy-to-read periodic table. Next, set your sights on every other subject with more tools and guides from our community.


The easiest way to make a virtual periodic table is to start with a template from FigJam. Periodic tables comprise 118 specifically-arranged boxes—each filled with precise numbers and symbols—so it’s best to start with a fully-vetted finished product. From there, you can customize it as you like.

If you’re struggling to make your chemistry lesson stick, you can try turning study time into game time. How so? Make the periodic table interactive. Here are a few fun activities and competitions to try:

- An element scavenger hunt

- A game to make words from element symbols

- A challenge to add a drawing of a common usage under each element

- A round of “periodic table battleship”

Remember: When teaching the elements, it’s best to bring everyone to the table
