I wonder if schools today still use acronyms and formulate songs to aid learning. I remember being taught the first 20 element but it just dint stick. So our Intro tech teacher ( Mr Benshak-God rest his soul) was passing by and when he noticed, he came in and tot us a song he learnt when he was in school. I ll recite and hope it helps someone. Here goes...


Hydrogen. H He
Helium. He HEy
Lithium Li LIttle
Beryllium Be BEtty
Boron B Bought
Carbon. C Car.
Nitrogen. . N Not
Oxygen. O Old
Fluorine. F Fashioned.
Neon Ne NEw
Sodium Na NAughty
Magnesium. Mg MaGdalene.
Aluminium. Al ALL
Silicon Si SIng
Phosphorus P Pop
Sulfur S Song.
Chlorine. Cl CLear
Argon Ar ARound
Potassium K. Kabwir
Calcium Ca. CAve.

Please share how you got these 20 elements to stick to your memory.

my chemistry teacher in primary 5 (GOD bless his soul) made us commit the whole damn 20 elements to memory word for word....and to recite them PERFECTLY off hand. no shortcuts!

a feat we achieved thanks to his fat canes which landed mercilessly on our backs at the slightest error.

back then we taught he was wicked for doing that but now i know better cos they really helped me in sec school
