In the unit, Bond…Chemical Bond, students will learn about chemical bonds. Students will learn how to illustrate, name, write formulas, and characterize the three main types of chemical bonds: ionic, covalent, and metallic. Students will begin with an anchoring activity exploring how the nature of different types of bonds affect properties such as conduction of electricity. At the end of the unit they will demonstrate that they have mastered the skills of illustrating and diagramming bond types, naming compounds and writing correct formulas. They will also demonstrate a conceptual understanding of bonding by identifying and explaining the nature of bonds found in three different powders by relying on data from the anchoring conductivity experiment.
