Thank God for Medicine Man! Junior has to do some science homework about the periodic table and atomic numbers. I have a deadline and I don't remember a thing about this stuff, so Medicine Mas has stepped up to the plate.
MM:What is that one?
What's the name?
MM: Chromium. It's a heavy metal.
MM: What would the next one be?
MM: Chemical symbol is just another way to say abbreviation.
MM: What if I told you alumnium is a metal? [He picks up a Coke can.] It's made of a very very light metal.
All these boxes, all these elements can be found in nature every day. We're made of elements.
Oscar: You said that's made of metal. Gold..that's kind of hard to squish. How come this is easier.
MM: Not all metals are hard. Some metals are harder than others. If this were made out of steel, it would be hard to crush. Aluminum is a softer, more pliable metal.
OK, now I have to get to work. Big props and a big shout out to Medicine Man!
