Classroom Resources: Molecules & Bonding
1 – 6 of 6 Classroom Resources
Ionic Bonding, Polyatomic Ions, Naming Compounds, Molecular Formula | Middle School, High School
Lesson Plan: What's in a Name? What's in a Glaze?
In this lesson students will learn about some of the chemical compounds involved in the art of pottery by practicing naming and writing formulas for ionic compounds commonly found in components of glazes for ceramics.
Periodic Table, Elements, History, Subatomic Particles, Atomic Mass, Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding | Middle School, High School
Project: Exploring Elements
In this project, students will select an element and then use Ptable.com to explore aspects of the element including its periodicity, electron configuration, history, and uses in industry.
Ionic Bonding, Lewis Structures, Naming Compounds | Middle School, High School
Activity: Ionic Bonding Puzzle
In this activity, students match puzzle pieces to create neutral ionic compounds. Once they have made a neutral ionic compound they can use electron dot diagrams to show the formation of the compounds. Finally they will name the ionic compounds.
Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding, Polarity, Molecular Formula | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
Animation: Bonding Animation
"In this animation, students will visualize how different chemical bonds form. Examples of ionic, covalent, and polar covalent bonds are animated, and then students are given a sample of compounds to predict the bonding types. **This video has no audio**"
Molecular Formula, Ionic Bonding, Covalent Bonding | High School, Middle School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Ionic and Covalent Bonding
In this simulation, students investigate both ionic and covalent bonding. Students will have the opportunity to interact with many possible combinations of atoms and will be tasked with determining the type of bond and the number of atom needed to form each. The simulation visually differentiates between the transferring of electrons when forming an ionic compound and the sharing of electrons when forming a covalent compound so that students can have a complete understanding of each. Finally, students will become familiar with the molecular formula, as well as the naming system for each type of bond and geometric shape, when applicable.
Ionic Bonding, Naming Compounds, Precipitate, Ions, Molecular Formula | Middle School
Activity: Bond with a Classmate
In this activity, students are assigned an ion and form bonds with their classmates, recording the formula and name of the compound they created.
