Memorizing the Periodic Table might not be very useful, but practicing chemistry would! In turn, your son will inevitably be able to start identifying elements and their properties. I suggest subscribing to MEL's Chemistry. It is a monthly subscription that is AMAZING! The supplies are delivered to your home from the UK and each month you receive 2 experiments that are really exciting for students. We love our kits when they arrive and now my son is reading molecular formulas (he is 11) based on the Atomic symbols.
I agree with Jen that application is generally much more impactful when compared to memorization. How about activities that will allow him to explore the similarities of elements within a group, family, or a period? This would provide a useful foundation for high school chemistry.
Hi Holli.. I came across a nice site to learn science. https://phet.colorado.edu/
It has some interesting simulations. There is one called Build an atom. I guess your son may like it. Hope it helps.
