AACT Resources for Teaching Chemical Names and Formulas Virtually
By Kim Duncan on November 5, 2020
As chemistry teachers around the country are planning activities for both distant and face-to-face learning, AACT will be highlighting resources from our high school resource library that can be used to reinforce topics in different units throughout the school year. Last week we updated our Chemical Bonding unit and we are now moving on to resources that can be used in a unit on chemical names and formulas.
- Ionic and Covalent Bonding Simulation
- Naming Compounds
- Molecular Compound Dice
- Naming Covalent Compounds
- Naming Alkanes
- Common Ion Memory Game
- Introduction to Naming and Formula Writing for Ionic Compounds
- My Name is Bond, Ionic Bond
- What’s in a Name? What’s in a Glaze?
- Ionic Bonding Puzzle
- Formula Card Game
- Bondy Rummy
- Constructing Ionic Compounds
We hope that these resources can help you to reinforce several of the topics covered in a unit about chemical names and formulas. Most of these lessons were made possible by great teachers who shared their own resources. We need your help to keep the collection growing. Do you have a great demonstration, activity, or lesson related to this topic that you would like to share with the community? Please send it along for consideration.
