Lesson Description

In this lesson, students get their first chance to apply their knowledge of covalent bonding to more complex molecules. They work as a class to perform a hand-held ethylene polymerization reaction, creating a polyethylene plastic polymer. They also work individually to build models of flavor molecules. Students begin to connect the molecular world to everyday experience.
