Lesson Plan: Types of Chemical Bonding Chemistry
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to describe the different types of chemical bonding, understand the concept of valency, and represent chemical bonds using Lewis structures.
Students will be able to
- describe the concept of valency and identify the valence electrons for an element,
- describe the different types of chemical bonding,
- explain the differences and similarities between the different types of chemical bonding,
- describe and explain the octet rule and its relation to both valency and chemical bonding,
- calculate the number of electrons in the outer shell a metal can lose to achieve a full outer shell,
- calculate the number of electrons in the outer shell a nonmetal can obtain to achieve a full outer shell,
- write the Lewis structure for an atom and an ion,
- use the Lewis structure of an atom or ion to describe and predict the type of chemical bonding that will occur,
- calculate the number of covalent bonds a nonmetal can form based on its group in the periodic table.
Students should already be familiar with
- the periodic table,
- atomic number.
Students will not cover
- details on covalent bonding,
- details on ionic bonding,
- details on metallic bonding.
