Ionic and Covalent bonding are depicted in the picture. Ionic bonds - is the attraction of a cation to an anion and is a weak bond that can be broken up in the presence of something more attractive. Covalent bonds - formed by the sharing of electrons between nuclei
Shmoop Chemistry explains Bonding: Covalent and Ionic Bonds. Part of our Types of Bonds and Orbitals Learning Guide. Learning and teaching resource for Bonding: Covalent and Ionic Bonds written by PhD students from Stanford, Harvard, Berkeley
In this lab, students will be expected to distinguish between atoms and molecules and describe the differences between pure substances and mixtures. Students will then make models of ionic and covalent molecules using gummy bears.
$This packet includes: Step by step notes for teaching 8th graders how to write chemical formulas and names for ionic compounds, student notes for writing covalent compound names, review handouts for the differences between ionic and covalent bonds, practice handout for ionic compounds, and a super fun ionic bonding class activity with all materials included. This packet now contains answer keys.
The Bonding Song: Chemistry meets song and dance. The core content is present here and packaged in an appealing way, plus here is a way for students to imitate this method to write and perform their own lessons.
