Card Sort Hacks

Card sorts are a great way to bring powerful retrieval practice into your classroom. Here are some of my favorite Card Sort Hacks you can use to step up your game!

Ionic Covalent Compounds and Card Sorts

Card sorts are a great way to achieve a number of classroom objectives.  They can be used as a review activity or they can be done during the middle of a lesson as a type of formative assessment. Sorts can encourage students to work with other students or can even be used as a type of exit ticket. I decided to use the strategy about two thirds of the way through a unit on covalent and ionic compounds and lewis structures. I knew there were items we did not cover in the sort but I was curious to see how they would approach these unknown topics.
