"For this project, you will be in groups and you will search up information about a different type of bond than another group will be doing, so no cheating! "
Mrs. Lanthanum smiled as she said, "I know you proabably have already made groups in your head. BUT... because it is a bonding project, you will be working with people you never work with, so you can BOND!".
"I hope everyone is ready to present their projects today. I want an ionic bond group to go first, then a covalent bond group to present after!" Mrs Lanthanum said at the beginning of class.
3 DAYS LATER
"While researching, we found many things!" Emma exclaimed! "Ionic bonds are always formed with metals and nonmetals." Jake said. "The main thing we learned was that ionic bonds are formed using ions: positive cations and negative anions." Sam finished.
IONIC BOND: Emma, Sam, and Jake
"We found out that through sharing valence electrons, covalent bonds are formed." started Bo. "When forming the bond, only 2 or more nonmetals are used" Jamie shared. "Yea", Holly added, "ions are NOT involved in this process!".
COVALENT BOND: Holly, Bo, and Jamie
"I learned so much from this project" exclaimed Sam. "Yea, me too, I guess it wasn't so bad working apart from each other!" Bo said.
