Ionic Compound Storybook
Ionic Bonding Unit
Students will be able to…
• Determine the Lewis Symbol and number of Valence Electrons for both a neutral atom and an ion.
• Determine how many electrons are gained or lost in the formation of an ion.
• Determine the charge of an ion.
• Determine the ionic formula formed when a metal cation bonds with a nonmetal anion.
• Recognize that ionic compounds are stable and neutral.
• The Story of an Ionic Compound – Storybook Template
• The Story of an Ionic Compound – Storybook Template – EXAMPLE KEY
• Ionic Compound Storybook…Storytelling
(All items compiled in 1 PDF document. Document cannot be edited.)
Additional Required Materials:
(These items are not included in the purchase.)
• Periodic Table per student
• Stapler & staples
(1) Give each student a copy of the “The Story of an Ionic Compound – Storybook Template” (Note: Do not print double sided. Two one sided copies are required).
(2) Fold each page horizontally (hamburger fold) along the fold line (lines labeled folds 1 and fold 3). Then, fold each page a second time along the fold line (lines labeled fold 2 and fold 4). Staple the two pages together along the fold lines.
(3) Assign students an element. OR Allow students to pick their own element. Recommend using elements #1-20 unless students are more advanced. Students can be assigned elements from the “Suggested Metal-Nonmetal Pairs” list.
(4) Students should complete their ionic compound storybook.
o Recommend showing students the EXAMPLE KEY and telling the story of how Calcium and Chlorine bond (this information found in the Example Key). This will demonstrate to students how to complete the assignment as well as how to explain the information.
(5) Students will complete the “Ionic Compound Storybook…Storytelling ” assignment. If time does not allow to complete this assignment in class, use it as a bonus assignment.
• If time allows, students can complete multiple ionic compound storybooks for different ionic compounds.
• If students need more practice with the information after completing the storybook, students can create a ‘story’ outline for another ionic compound on a poster or a mini-poster (7½ by 11 copy paper) with a partner.
