PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a self-directed, group, discovery, inquiry activity where the students discovery the requirements in naming covalent molecules and ionic compounds.

There are 7 hints that the students use to correctly fill in for the puzzle at the back of the activity sheet. The puzzle is simply a cheesy pick-line science pun that the students have to solve for. In the 7 hints provided, they are to discover the differences in naming covalent and ionic compounds such as CaO = Calcium oxide. The hints include example naming types for both types, prefixes, and where to find metals and non-metal groups. In addition, there is a sheet where there are 4 different potential answers for students to choose from.

From my experience:
This is a great start to having students to see the differences between the two types than simply going through them with notes. I noticed that the struggle of figuring out the puzzle, and seeing the differences between the bond types helped their understanding than just notes and practice.







Spoiler:
The puzzle:
"Are you a carbon sample?"

Answer:
because "I want to date you"
