There are 66 objectives to be covered by upcoming chemists if they complete this two-chapter assignment. It encompasses all of the information needed to deal with covalent bonds and molecular geometry. Colorful diagrams display the molecular orbital structures. Charts are used to compare them. Practice problems and vocabulary definitions abound!
In "The Nature of Covalent Bonding," chemistry hopefuls demonstrate an understanding of various types of covalent bonds, electron configuration, and resonance structures through fill in the blank, true or false, and matching questions. They complete the worksheet by drawing three electron dot structures of compounds.
Four pages provide plenty of problem solving practice for chemistry whizzes. They answer questions and write electron configurations for ions. They use Lewis dot diagrams to display equations. Covalent bonds are explored. The last half of the assigment is made up of a chart in which learners write the number of valence electrons, the Lewis structure, molecular shape, bond angles, polarity, and resonance. 
On this note-taking sheeet, chemistry learners list elements as metals or non-metals. They differentiate between ionic and covalent bonds. They draw Lewis structures for both types of bonds. This would be a terrific teaching tool when introducing ionic and covalent bonds.
An extensive resource for chemistry, this series of exercises and accompanying information could be used as review or added curriculum. Have your class read the information and complete the exercises for homework, or in class. Your choice! The resource covers compounds, ionic and covalent bonds, ionic formulas, atomic mass, molar mass, and more. Take a look and see what this has to offer!
Students create models of ionic and covalent electronic bonds to demonstrate their understanding of these chemistry concepts. They explain how both ionic bonds and covalent bonds work so that younger students can understand.
Flowing coherently, this slide show will take your chemistry aces from understanding simple covalent bonds, to naming binary and ternary compounds. Direct instruction and practice problems make this a complete lesson. Show these slides as a support to your lecture and then assign more practice problems as homework.
Prepare a time lapse video of fruit candies acting as atoms moving toward each other to form ionic or covalent bonds. After showing it as a demonstration, have lab groups work together to create a similar video. Over the time period suggested, the concpts of sharing, losing, or gaining electrons is reinforced. 
A short paragraph helps explain how covalent bonds are formed, and then your class will complete the Electron/Dot and Structural diagrams for the molecules given.  The valence diagrams will reinforce understanding. This activity would be a nice, simple review.
For this chemistry worksheet, students complete the chart for each of the given elements by naming the number of protons, electrons, Valence electrons, and the electrons used to fill the outer shell. Then they complete each covalent bond that follows. There are six covalent bonds to solve on the sheet.
First, high school chemists fill in a chart for seven elements to show the numbers of protons, electrons, valence electrons, and electrons needed to full the outer shell. Then combinations of elements are listed. Instructions say simply to follow the teacher's instructions, which could be to draw Lewis dot diagrams for each covalent bonding situation.
After a short introduction, chemistry aces get right into drawing electron dot diagrams for covalent bonds. There are only three questions to answer, so this is not a comprehensive worksheet. It can be used when introducing your class to covalent bonds.
Using the chemicals that leaked in the Bhopal gas tragedy of 1984, chemists examine covalent bonds. Provide for them the chemical reactions and have them draw Lewis diagrams for the molecules involved. That's about all there is to the lesson.
There are only six short answer questions on this assignment. Chemists explain electrical conduction properties of salt, salt water, and gold. They compare ionic and covalent bonds. The explain bond strengths. Perhaps you could use this as a pop quiz.
Starting with a very clear diagram to demonstrate how a wave actually forms, an informative video will be a great summary about s wave travel. It explains the difference between polar bonds in liquids versus the stronger ionic and covalent waves.
In this bonds worksheet, students complete a graphic organizer by determining if the compounds given are metals or non-metals and if that compound has a covalent or ionic bond.
In this bonds learning exercise, students complete a graphic organizer by determining if the compounds given are metals or non-metals and if it has a covalent or ionic bond.
You may want to make a few changes before sharing this slide show with your chemistry class. For one, remove the bright blue swirly background that makes the black font hard to read. Ionic bonds are described with the use of an electron dot diagram. Covalent bonds are explained with the use of colorful diagrams displaying the electron shells. The link to the movie about covalent bonding does not work, so this is another issue that you may want to resolve prior to using the resource.
For this chemical bonding worksheet, learners review the three types of compounds: ionic, covalent, and polyatomic. Students practice drawing the covalent bonds of given compounds. This worksheet has 5 drawings and 13 fill in the blank questions.
After studying the different aspects of atoms and their reactivity, pupils will find this summary PowerPoint useful for review. Some of the slides are informative with labeled diagrams; others give important vocabulary. Teachers may want to take sections of this slide show to use as a supplement to other chemistry lessons.
