Students draw Lewis structures and determine the AXE notation the day before for homework. Then spend the following class period building the 3-D VSPER shapes in class using modeling clay, tooth picks and wooden stir sticks. Phet simulation for VSPER theory was used to accommodate this lab. Two sets

The PhET molecule shape simulation from the University of Colorado is a great way for students to visualize 3-dimension molecule shapes. Instead of lecturing on the VSEPR molecular shapes to my AP Chemistry class, I give them this guided activity to let them visualize the shapes and draw conclusion
