This animated PowerPoint takes students on a tour of another major (but often neglected) bond type, the metallic bond.
I have created and provided you with several unique visualizations for the extreme sharing of non-kernel (valence) electrons of metal nuclei involved in metallic bonding. The students love the animations, and they really drive the points home.
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.
I describe metallic bonds as a mobile sea of electrons, which seems to work well with students.
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.
