In this activity, students will move around the classroom completing different task cards with questions related to bonding. Students will complete tasks such as name, draw, identify, write, explain, and list. This is a great activity to help students master or review naming, drawing, and interpreting chemical formulas for ionic and covalent compounds. I love it because it requires minimal resources or prep and gives students excellent practice – all while getting them out of their seats!
How can I use this?
- Engaging review or mastery activity for the following topics:
- Stability in forming compounds, both ionic and covalent
- Using electron dot/Lewis dot diagrams to represent chemical bonds
- Naming and writing chemical formulas for ionic compounds, including compounds with polyatomic ions and transition metals
- Naming and writing chemical formulas for covalent compounds
- Meaningful activity for a sub lesson plan
Why should I use this product in my classroom?
I love task cards as a fun way to get students out of their seats while also reviewing key topics. Students can easily work autonomously through the stations at their own pace. I particularly love these task cards because they require minimal resources and prep but offer high engagement.
What is included?
- 1 page of teacher implementation notes (PDF)
- 2 page student handout (PDF)

What materials will I need to have in my classroom to set this up?
- None! Just the printed and cut task cards posted around the classroom! This set-up is so easy!
How much class time will this take?
This activity takes one 50-minute class period.
