I created this activity to help students as they learn the elements and common compounds. It is based on Scrabble with significant differences for ease of play and to maximize educational value.
In this download you get:
1. A handout of the elements and numbers organized in tiles that will become game pieces during the activity,
2. A game board page
3. A two-page list of common compounds that will serve as reference during play,
4. A wordsearch that can be used for differentiation, as a brain break, a warm-up, or as a reward for students and groups who finish ahead of their peers.
5. A list of online resources where you, or your students can find additional information on the elements and compounds.
This activity will be a great addition to the materiales that you currently use to teach the elements and is ideal for review, for Fun Fridays, and especially as part of your substitute teacher plans.
