Ion (Derstand) Bonding through Energy Level Diagrams

Ninth graders investigate ionic bonding through energy level diagrams. In this ion bonding lesson plan, 9th graders observe demonstrations to show energy level diagrams using magnets to represent the subatomic particles. Students fill the energy levels of sodium and chlorine using the magnets and visually see the valence electrons and how bonding between the two atoms occurs. Students take notes about ions and observe conductivity in ionic compounds.

I was looking for some creative ways to introduce my students to Hawaiian music and the culture of Hawaii in the elementary music classroom. Lesson provided a wealth of helpful and fun resources for me to use in my classroom.
