Lesson Plan: Ionic Bonds Science

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to describe the formation of ionic bonds in simple binary compounds.


Students will be able to

  • recall how positive and negative ions are formed,
  • summarize the movement of electrons as ionic bonds are formed between metals and nonmetals,
  • explain how positive and negative ions create ionic bonds,
  • describe changes in the electron number of the outer shell of both atoms as an ionic bond forms,
  • draw simple diagrams to show the formation of ionic bonds,
  • give metal oxides as examples of ionic compounds,
  • give metal salts as examples of ionic compounds with varying solubility.


Students should already be familiar with

  • the formation of positive and negative ions,
  • the electronic structure of metals and nonmetals.


Students will not cover

  • the formation of ionic compounds containing polyatomic anions.
