***NOW DIGITAL*** Learning to write chemical formulas from the name form is very hard for students. This worksheet shows them the structure of how to form the compound. After using this worksheet students will understand exactly which element comes first! That concept is the first hurdle for students.


Benefits & Features

  • This easy to use worksheet will show students the anatomy of a chemical compound which will make writing their own chemical compounds easier.

  • You won't have to explain the electronegativity or cations coming first over and over because this worksheet makes them EVEN MORE OBVIOUS by color coding.

  • If you have used my other worksheets, students already know cations are blue and anions are yellow. That has prepared them for this worksheet where they learn the element farthest to the left goes first.

For best results, use this with my Intro to Cations and anions worksheet, Ionic covalent worksheet, and balancing charges worksheet. Your students will be surprised at how easy this is with my Color Memory Theory Worksheets.

***Did your chemistry class go to distance learning? I created a TpT Digital Activity using this worksheet that is all ready to go for you. I've already typed the instructions and added the answer boxes to save you time. Of course, you can edit or completely change the way I've written the instructions. How cool is that? Assign it via Google classroom. See the how to video here.***
