PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Concepts covered: ionic bonding, bonding with polyatomic ions, covalent bonding

Students often have a hard time with the abstract ideas of chemical bonding. Because atoms/ions are too small to see and for all practical purposes, too small to imagine, students who need concrete examples of chemical bonding to be able to grasp the concept often find themselves lost during the chemistry unit of physical science. Even chemistry students - typically 11th or 12th grade - can find themselves struggling to write formulas for binary or polyatomic ions using transition metals.

I have found that the cards included in this packet offer students a chance to associate a game they have played before (Go Fish) with collecting cards and "building" molecules/formula units.

Several different card sets are included, along with rules for different activities I have had my students participate in. The card sets start with the most basic binary ionic bonds and range through combinations with polyatomic ions, transition metals, and covalent bonds. Each game can be played for an entire 55 minute class period - with a multitude of activities, this game could easily be used multiple times without creating boredom for your students.

The teacher guide includes rules, suggestions, and helpful hints. Also included is a page size rules only sheet - suitable for handing out to the groups as they begin the game.

I have many Chemistry and Physical Science Products here on TPT. Here are links to a few of my more popular items:
