Product Details

Go Fish in the “Fishing Pond” of ion cards! Students have fun as they learn the symbols and charges of 20 common monatomic and polyatomic ions. Students form compounds using the ion cards and other players check the matches laid down—all students are actively involved in the game. Points are scored for each correct ionic compound—a great way for students to learn chemical formulas, names and ionic charges. Students keep a score sheet with the cation, the anion, the chemical formula and the compound name. The score sheet later makes a great study sheet or review guide. Two card game options are provided—Writing Formulas and Naming Compounds—depending on class goals and the level of the students. Game includes four decks of 64 colored Go Fish playing cards (containing 10 different cations and 10 different anions), duplicating masters for ion cards, score sheets and game rules.

Super Value Game is complete for 20 students playing at one time. All materials are reusable!
