The creator of this collection of chemistry slides is clever! Electron configuration is explained as, click-by-click, orbitals are displayed and then each is subsequently filled with the proper amount of electrons. After the progression, a learning check slide and multiple choice questions give viewers the opportunity to practice.

WS 2.4 Electronic Configurations
Emerging chemists complete the table of electron levels, write electron configurations, and draw Lewis structures for a variety of atoms on this worksheet. Though there is a note about accessing a classroom website on the upper right corner of the worksheet, you can blot it out before copying and distributing to your class as practice.
