Gumdrop molecule activity

Gumdrop Molecule Activity

  • Draw the Lewis dot structure for the molecule

  • Use gumdrops, marshmallows, and toothpicks to build a 3D representation of the molecule

    • Gumdrop=atom

    • Toothpick=bond

    • Small marshmallow=shared electron pair

    • Large marshmallow=lone electron pair

  • Draw a sketch on sheet of your molecule (remember a key!)

What if you removed another?

How do you think this would affect the molecular model?


V alence s hell e lectron p air r epulsion t heory

Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion Theory

The molecular structure is based on electrons (Shared or unshared) arranging themselves so that they have the greatest distance between one another around the central atom.

The goal is to minimize the repulsion between the negatively-charged electrons.
