VSEPR Theory with Chemistry Model Kits

Valence Shell Electron Pair Repulsion, or VSEPR Theory, is a way to determine what geometric shape a covalent compound will make based on the number of bonds and unpaired electrons surrounding the central atom of the compound. This is a chart that I have students fill out as they use a chemistry model kit to build various covalent compounds.

Essential concepts: VSEPR, molecular geometry, linear, trigonal planar, bent, tetrahedral, trigonal pyramidal, Lewis dot structures.
