Ionic Dating Game

Material

Procedures

  1. Look at your elemental symbol and answer the “Pre-Game Questionnaire” to better identify your properties so that you will be able to know how to combine with other elements to make an ionic compound.
  2. Find three (3) “Ionic Dates” with different “personalities” (group properties) and complete the compatibility (data) chart.
  3. List your “best match” from one of your three (3) dates as your 4th Date.

Pre-Game Questionnaire

  1. What is your elemental name and symbol? ???
  2. How many valence electrons do you have? ???
  3. What is your Lewis dot structure? ???
  4. Are you a metal or a nonmetal? ???
  5. Do you gain or lose electrons? How many? What is your charge? ???
  6. Are you a cation or an anion? ???
  7. When you “date” (make compound), what rule do you have to follow? ???
  8. What is your “married” (ionic) name in the compound and formula (symbol)? ???
