This best selling chemistry activity is available in both print & digital formats! As a print, this activity is a hands-on manipulative with the corresponding worksheets, one for monatomic ions only and another with monatomic & polyatomic, designed to help students visualize the ratio of cations and anions required to make a variety of neutral compounds. You can use the digital to replace the print, or you can use the digital for review before a test! Beginning ionic compound formation with this conceptual activity helps students "connect" the abstract with physical.

The introductory paragraph in this activity calls attention the definition of cations and anions, and describes the design of each card: All anions pieces are shown with a respective quantity of points that represent the number of electrons gained and all cations have indents, reflective of their respective quantity of electrons lost.

The puzzle pieces, whether printed or used digitally, are designed so that the cation will always be oriented to the left of the anion, mimicking their compound formula. Printing the pieces on colored paper or black/white makes them easy for students to categorize into groups before they begin. The file is designed out so that there are two sets per page and are in a zig-zag fashion so they are easy for cutting.

Digital slides and cards can be deleted or hidden as needed. You and your students must have Google accounts to access the Google version. This resource is ideal for digital, distance learning, in-class practice, stations, homework, review or assessments.

Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms. Examples of properties that could be predicted from patterns could include reactivity of metals, types of bonds formed, numbers of bonds formed, and reactions with oxygen. Assessment is limited to main group elements. Assessment does not include quantitative understanding of ionization energy beyond relative trends.
