Day 62: Molecular Models


IS II students worked with covalent bonds and the molecular models. It works well to have something to hold and talk about. Though not a perfect representation of covalent bonding, it does help them understand the geometry of some molecules. They also did Lewis dot diagrams of all of the molecules that they built. Tomorrow they’ll try to build models to show the combustion of methane and start to understand a balanced chemical reaction.
