Cation Separation and Identification
Young scholars conduct an experiment in which they systematically separate cations from a mixture of substances. They use the following types of reactions to do so: precipitation, acids and bases, oxidation and reduction. They compare a standard solution to a waste-water solution to determine which cations are present.

Naming Compounds Handout
In this naming compounds worksheet, students read through guidelines on naming different types of chemical ions and compounds then practice naming on their own. The naming compounds handout includes 100 practice problems in which they name ions, combine pairs of ions to make new formulas, write the ions and chemical formulas for compound names, name molecular compounds, name acids, and finish with naming additional chemical compounds by applying all they have studied in the packet.

Chapter 5: Naming Compounds/Writing Formulas
Here is an all-encompassing lesson on naming chemical compounds and writing formulas. It begins by using a color-coded periodic table to teach about the element groups: metals, transition metals, non-metals, and metalloids. Anions and cations are explained.

Chemistry students review the trends found in the organization of the periodic table by completing this worksheet. They determine which of the given atoms has the largest ionic radius and which is the most electronegative. This worksheet has 6 matching, 4 true or false, 10 fill in the blank, and 2 problems to solve.

Predicting the pH of Salt Solutions
More of an instructional handout than a practical learning exercise, this resource explains how to predict the pH of salt solutions. It notes that most cations are acidic, whereas most anions are basic. To determine the pH of a solution, this information is necessary and is used to determine whether or not excess hydrogen or hydroxy ions result in a reaction.

After the Test. . . Improving Understanding
The heading that tops this assignment is humourous, but specifically directed at a group of chemistry kids who apparently did not perform very well on an exam. The questions that follow are meant to review concepts that they need additional practice with.

Naming and Writing Formulas for Ionic Compounds
In this ionic compounds instructional activity, students fill in 8 blanks with the appropriate terms, they determine if 4 statements are true or false, they match 4 terms with their definition and they name and write the formulas of compounds.

Shells and Subshells
Students explore how to show evidence of subshells and electron filling on the visual scale. They examine subshell filling and evaluate unknowns based on the atomic emission spectrum. Students design an experiment to identify colors of metal cations.
