How are Ionic Compounds formed? | Balancing of valency

Use ionic puzzles to understand:

  • Types of ions – cations and anions
  • Criss – cross rule by forming ionic compounds.
  • Underlying principle behind balancing of chemical equations

Ion Puzzles!

Chemistry is fun! By bringing even the most complex concepts of this subject into its basics and building on this knowledge, a student can easily imbibe its many lessons to develop a fully-formed idea and understanding of the periodic table and its many elements. But to learn Chemistry in its three-dimensional, real-time form, it is important to also implement its concepts with the help of practical experiments.

And Butterfly Fields brings to your child its many interactive projects to do just that! With our Compound formation kit, your child will learn all about:

The grouping of Cations and Anions: By using provided ‘jigsaw puzzle pieces’ of a large number of elements, your child will first learn how to group many chemical elements on the basis of the polarity of their charge, i.e., as cations and anions.

Classifying Ions: With the second activity, your child will learn how to group these elements on the basis of their ionic forms.
Forming compounds: Ions do not exist independently in nature – they form compounds with other ions! With the help of the third activity, your child will learn how a number of compounds are formed by grouping their respective pieces together.

Balancing Chemical Equations: Chemical compounds also react with each other to form various new compounds. This activity is represented by chemical equations, many of which will be shown with the help of this final activity.

Therefore, as an interactive, fun and educative experience, the Compound formation kit not only builds your child’s confidence, perseverance and general focus, it also teaches them the following basic Chemistry concepts to enhance their foundation on the subject:

Types of Ions
Criss-cross rule (By forming ionic compounds)
Underlying principle behind balancing of chemical equations
