Ionic bonding (SCool)
Read the text and watch the animations to help you to understanding what happens when metals and non-metals form ionic bonds.
Covalent bonding (SCool)
Read the text and watch the animations to learn how non-metal atoms form covalent bonds.
Noble gases and halogens (S-cool)
Read through the summary of the noble gases to explain why they are unreactive. Then read through the description of the properties and reactivity of the halogens.
Choose the topic you want from the list on the left. There is a video explaining how to play Gridlocks if you need it.
