Get your students up and moving with this fun Musical Compounds Activity! This engaging activity is a play on the old game “Musical Chairs” and allows students to practice writing formulas for and naming ionic and covalent compounds. It’s one of my student favorites!
-Activity Directions (with pictures for clarification)
-Student Answer Document
-18 cation cards + 18 anion cards (enough for 36 students)
-36 covalent compounds cards

*Note: this activity is targeted at students who are just beginning to name and write formulas for simple binary compounds. I have included “modification” suggestions for lower-level learners.
