When I was teaching high school chemistry I found that when students were confronted with a graph that they immediately shut down regardless of how easy the graph might have been to read. I began to find ways for students to engage with the material at the simplest level through games. This activity encourages students to apply their knowledge in finding points on the graph and identifying the type of solution at that point. While this activity is fairly low level, students will master how to read solubility graphs and differentiate between when a solution is supersaturated, saturated, or unsaturated as shown on the graph.
Within this activity I have included a game board to be placed into a sheet protector, an example board, a key to the post-game questions, teacher instructions, and the 2-page document to be handed out to each student. I have also described ways that I differentiated this activity for my own classroom.
Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions! I look forward to hearing your feedback!
