Use this easy but meaninful activity to introudce ionic and covalent bonds to students. Students use simple compounds (sugar and salt) to observe first hand how the type of bond impacts properties of substances. Because it is so effective, I use this activity every year. It really helps my students understand physical and chemical peoperties so much better than lecture alone. Teacher answer key is provided! Make teaching easier!

Objective: In this lab students will heat sugar and salt in separate test tubes over a Bunsen burner flame to compare the bond strength between ionic and covalent compounds. Students will also observe physical properties (melting point) of compounds make assumptions about bond types.
Test tube, test tube holder, test tube rack, 10mL graduated cylinder, table sugar (sucrose), table salt (NaCl), a heat source such as a Bunsen burner and matches.
