Valence Electrons

Today students learned about valence electrons. Valence electrons are the outermost electrons and are the electrons that are used for bonding and participate in reactions. Valence electrons are only found in the S and P blocks.

Students practiced counting valence electrons and drawing Lewis Dot Structures.

Students also learned how to identify the charges of metals with more than one oxidation state using Roman numerals.
