Let's Bond with One Another!

Interested in another activity for your ionic bonding unit? Well, check out the 2 minute video below concerning an activity I found during my second year in education. 
FYI - the video links will not work if you're viewing on a mobile device or tablet. 
The original activity is titled Bond with a Classmate and was created by Gail Sanders.  You can find the FREE monatomic templates shown in the video and a worksheet at the source site here. This site also has a lot of great items that helped me out when I first started teaching - especially, when I had no help or curriculum; so I hope you find the items there to be useful as well. :)

While the templates were great, I found that they were missing the polyatomic ions and the multivalent, transition metal ions.  Therefore, I was inspired to extend the activity for high school level students and created additional ions to use with my students. These templates are also FREE and can be found by clicking here
As mentioned in the video, this activity serves as a great instructional tool that allows your students the opportunity to get up and move around (or even take them outside as shown in the pictures in the video).  

I would love to hear if you've tried this activity before (or if you were inspired to try it checking out the site and my video).  As always, thank you for taking time out of your day for stopping by.
