Ionic Bonding

Unit 4: Compounds
Lesson 4 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to model how ionic compounds form and to name them.

Big Idea: Atoms become ions by losing or gaining electrons to achieve a full valence shell. These ions then bond with other ions to balance their charges and form compounds.
