Ionic bond speed dating
Thanks so much! Was trying to think of some sort of "speed dating" game with bonds and you saved me loads of time.
Fun activity for reviewing the topic
I only had one kid in my class who didn't have fun doing this... and it's always the same kid that complains about everything... so I would call this an absolute winner!!! Check out Ionic bonding dominoes for a great starter too.
