This lesson plan introduces the concept of electronegativity to students in terms of atomic radius, nuclear charge, and placement of elements on the periodic table.
It is all presented in the form of a crowd-pleasing original story about Fluorine and Lithium (Lithy) in their search for love and stability.
Students learn to make qualitative judgments about electronegativity based on the elements placement on the periodic table.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
