Lewis Structures

In this Lewis structures worksheet, students identify and describe what Lewis structures or dot diagrams are and how they illustrate the valence electrons in an outer shell. Then they use a periodic table to determine the numbers of valence electrons for each of the 20 elements given. Finally, students draw a dot to represent each valence electron around the element symbol, following the pattern to position number 1.

Lesson Planet is absolutely amazing! I teach at a school in the Dominican Republic and rely heavily on the internet for resources. Now, I no longer have to sift through the huge amounts of irrelevant information generated by internet search engines - I love being able to find creative lessons and worksheets for my students in a matter of minutes!
