Here is an easy spell to memorize to memorize the first 10 elements in order, repeat it in your mind for 20 times and you'll never forget it.

"Henry Hester Likes Beer But CanNot Obtain Food Now"

  • Henry - Hydrogen ( The common 'y' helps in avoiding mixing it for Helium)
  • Hester - Helium
  • Likes - Lithium
  • Beer - Beryllium (Be) ( Both start with 'Be', helps to avoid mixing it with Boron)
  • But - Boron
  • Can - Carbon
  • Not - Nitrogen
  • Obtain - Oxygen
  • Food - Fluorine
