This zip file contains many different activities (68 pages of student handouts and 1 PowerPoint with a total of 57 slides) which can be used to compose a unit for chemistry students involving topics in bonding. Topics in this unit include properties of electronegativity and its relationship to bond type, covalent bonds (polar and nonpolar), molecular shape and symmetry, ionic bonding, Lewis dot structures, hydrogen bonding, relationship of bonding forces to melting and boiling points and more.
Two lab activities are contained within this package. One is an introduction to bonding lab requiring simple materials which can be purchased in most grocery stores or pharmacies plus some beakers or test tubes. The second lab uses an internet simulation to allow the student to construct molecular structures and examine bonding forces and simple molecular shapes.
While these lessons were originally designed to correlate to the performance indicators of the New York State Chemistry - Physical Setting curriculum, the components of this lesson may be easily used in other chemistry or physical science courses as well. The components this unit addresses in the NGSS Standards and Common Core Standards are indicated at the end of this description.
The components of this lesson package can easily be displayed to students using and LCD projector and may be readily modified into formats facilitating smartboard technology.
Most documents are included in both word docx as well as pdf format to allow editing for specific teacher needs.
