Whether your chemistry students are learning or reviewing how to name ionic compounds and write chemical formulas for ionic compounds, this Ionic Compounds Card Game will provide endless amounts of self-checking practice for your students!
This PDF by Hoop There It Is includes:
32 cation cards (pg. 2-3)
32 anion cards (pg. 4-5)
Student handout (pg. 6-7)
Answer key grid (pg. 8-16)
Simply print the cation cards (pg. 2-3) and anion cards (pg. 4-5) front-to-back on two different colors of cardstock and provide each student with a front-to-back copy of the student handout (pg. 6-7).
32 unique cations (including transition metals) and 24 unique anions (including polyatomic ions) allow students to make, name, and write chemical formulas for up to 768 unique ionic compounds!
Print and post the 9 page, student-friendly answer key grid so students can check their answers as they go. This works well at an independent or cooperative station during small group instruction!
The student handout provides space for 35 ionic compounds at a time, meaning students could play 22 times without repeating a compound.
This product by Hoop There It Is could replace countless compound practice sheets . . . a major time saver that enables you to provide your students with limitless practice naming and writing formulas for ionic compounds!
Transition metals and polyatomic ions are based on those included in my course textbook, Prentice Hall Physical Science (Section 6.3).
