We just learned about the metal Silver

Another chemical element is Silicon, called "Si" for short on the Periodic Table.

Silicon is a type of rock that is kind of like a metal and kind of not.
The words for rocks like that is metalloid.

We learned before that silicon is a semiconductor which means it is ok but not great at letting electricity go through it.
