Product Details

Connect abstract principles of chemical bonding and the properties of chemicals with this exciting set of five curriculum activities—two experiments, a demonstration and two POGIL™ activities.

• Super Duper Polymer Gel demonstration shows the relationship between bonding and structure.
• In Lewis Structures and Molecular Geometry, a guided-inquiry lab, students draw Lewis structures and use models to visualize their unique three-dimensional shapes.
• The Color of Chemistry is a beautiful experiment! Brilliant color patterns obtained by dyeing a special multi-fiber fabric teach students about ionic bonding and intermolecular forces.
• Naming Ionic Compounds POGIL activity ensures that students will achieve the learning objective.
• Polyatomic Ions POGIL activity reinforces twin concepts of covalent versus ionic bonding.

The package includes chemicals and specialty equipment to perform the lab and learning activities listed below. Quantities of chemicals are sufficient for three classes of 30 students working in pairs! Instructions for all activities may be found in Chemical Bonding, Volume 5 in the Flinn ChemTopic™ Labs series, which is provided in this package. Common laboratory equipment is required and available separately.

  • Super-Duper Polymer Gel (Demonstration)
  • Lewis Structures and Molecular Geometry (Experiment)
  • The Color of Chemistry (Experiment)
  • Naming Ionic Compounds (POGIL Activity)
  • Polyatomic Ions (POGIL Activity)
