Looking for a fun way to review elements, compounds & mixtures with your students? Try my card sorting activity! Your students will have to determine whether 30 cards are elements, compounds, or mixtures. Having your students complete a card sorting activity will cause good discussions between them.

I have included 2 versions:
I with a colorful background & 1 with a plain white background so you can save ink
