These are challenging vocabulary domino card games for students to play in groups. Students match elements to the correct electron configuration or orbital notation. The objective of the game is to be the first group to put all cards together correctly.
This activity encourage students to talk about the vocabulary words associated with the game.
Having the students compete against other groups encourages teamwork and adds to the excitement of the activity.
My chemistry students loved these activities and asked me to create more like them.
Hand out the cards, watch the participants work and laugh…and ENJOY!!
