Why Lesson Planet?
What a cute approach to chemical bonding! Atoms all have human names and are attending at a dance. Who will pair up with whom? By reading the characteristics, and not the element name, chemistry whizzes figure out the bonding pairs. There is a tiny section on the second page that refers to textbook chapter vocabulary, but this activity is way too unique to throw out because of an irrelevant question. Take a look; you will want to join the dance!
