On Thursday, we talked about ionic bonding. An ionic bond is when a metal gives up electrons to a non-metal. The atoms now have a positive charge (the metal) or a negative charge (the non-metal). Just like magnets, opposites attract and a salt is formed.
Aim: What happens when atoms gain or lose electrons?
