Type Valence shell electron pair repulsion model

Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion (VSEPR) models illustrate molecular geometry, resonance, and molecule polarity.
VSEPR 1 model supports students' investigation of the octet rule to create models of molecules with linear, tetrahedral, pyramidal, bent, and trigonal planar shapes.
Model includes:
•    Two carbons
•    Four oxygens
•    Five hydrogens
•    Three halogens
•    Three nitrogens
•    Two sulfurs
•    Six short tubes
•    Six long tubes

VSEPR 2 model helps students understand exceptions to the octet rule. Students will create octahedral, square planar, trigonal, hipyramidal, trigonal planar, linear, and bent molecules.
Model includes:
•    2-2 trigonal bipyramidal
•    Two octahedral
•    Five oxygens
•    Three hydrogens
•    Seven halogens
•    Two nitrogens
•    Eight short tubes
•    Eight long tubes
