Thanks for sharing this resource, Edward!

I'm curious to hear how successful this was for your students. Did you use the game as an in class activity or as an extra practice assignment for students at home? I remember my high school chemistry course being very challenging and an interactive game like this would have increased student motivation in the classroom. Most of our independent practice and assessments involved memorizing the periodic table, polyatomic ions, and balancing equations. How do you integrate this activity into your instuction and allign it with your lesson objectives and standards?
