What do you know about the periodic table? Do you know where the metals and non-metals are found.

. If you know the position of metals and non-metals, you can look at their respective properties and see a common trend. One trend is to look at the number of electrons present in outer shell. How are metals and nonmetals different in this regard?

look at the electrons in their outer shells. Metals generally have lower and non-metals have higher. What does this tell you about the formation of ions?

metals form positive ions and non metals form negative ions. Correct?

Yes. So that is one thing you could talk about in terms of atomic structure.
