When students begin to write chemical formulas from names, there is a lot for them to consider. Can they figure out the right element symbol? Can they figure out the charge of the element? Is there a polyatomic ion present? Is the overall charge balanced for the compound?
This worksheet takes them through that whole thought process. It makes them write down the element symbols, along with the charges right above the symbol. Then, they cross charges to come up with a final formula. This is all done in a very organized and aesthetically pleasing way.
