This file is in .zip format. All that means is you download the lesson package as one file (.zip) and then double-click it to extract it. No additional software is needed, your PC or Mac will do all the work. Please view the Preview File to obtain a sense of my style, see how my PowerPoint lesson is structured and evaluate my work. If you are not 100% happy with what you purchase, I will refund your entire purchase price via PayPal. To access the video(s), begin the slideshow and click the image of the video player. A new window will open up taking you directly to the video.

Within my Matter, Chemical Trends and Chemical Bonding Unit you can find the following lessons:
• Lesson 1 - Atomic Theory and Structure Overview
• Lesson 2 - Lewis Structures
• Lesson 3 - Trends In The Periodic Table
• Lesson 4 - Types of Chemical Bonds
• Lesson 5 - Nomenclature - Ionic Compounds and Multivalents
• Lesson 6 - Nomenclature - Polyatomics and Covalent Compounds
• Lesson 7 - Intermolecular Forces


The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
