But just how small is an atom? – from TED-Ed.

Here are some key terms for this topic: Key Terms C3

Revision sites covering Bonding:

GCSE s-cool – Chemical Bonding – revision notes & animations, practise exam questions & a revision summary

For Doc Brown’s Chemistry quizzes, word-fills, crosswords and study notes go here and just scroll down to ‘18.Structure, Properties and Bonding of Materials’.

Skoool Chemistry – click on ‘1. Structures & Bonding’ for excellent lessons that take you through the topic; also a glossary of key terms.

Worksheets from Mr Guch that cover Properties of Ionic & Covalent Compounds.

Great resources from the Australian International School – videos, powerpoints, worksheets, practicals, animations, flashcards etc.

For fun, here’s Chemical Party (a 1m 30s vid).

How polarity makes water behave strangely – a 4m TED-Ed video from Christina Kleinberg.

In Crash Course Biology #2: Water – Liquid Awesome, Hank teaches us why water is one of the most fascinating and important substances in the universe.

C3.5 Molecules & Covalent Bonds

A 15m lesson covering Ionic, Covalent & Metallic bonding from ChemistryKlipz (you don’t need metallic bonding in this topic):

A nice review of bonding and here’s a song:

And now we need another song. Oh, here’s Mr W singing his Octet Rule Song.
