Are All Halogen's Created Equal?
- Use observational skills to deduce conclusions
- Make silver compounds
Students learn how to classify elements by observing the behavior of compounds in the Halogen family (Group VIIA). The chemical properties of this group are very similar despite the marked differences in their physical properties. As students perform a series of experiments, they discover that the elements form remarkably similar compounds with silver. Also, that the formulas of the compounds are similar, and that they elements are indeed in the same family.
