In this one piece of paper project, students create a mini book about an ion. Great for practicing ionic bonding, identifying cations/anions, and reinforcing models of the atom. Students can really let their creative side show with the stories they create about the adventures of the ion they select.
Examples "story lines" for the ion:
Report style - straight information (but really not as fun!)
Write a poem with the ions
Ion dating game
Ion in search of a lost friend/love/dog ...
Ion looking for something
Ion on first day of school switching classes
Many more -- the students will surprise you with their creativity!
