Title: What Makes a Chemical Reaction Endothermic or Exothermic?
Description: Students will analyze the bond energy of the reactants and products in a chemical reaction.  Students will develop a model to illustrate how the changes in total bond energy determine whether the reaction is endothermic or exothermic. This lesson results from a collaboration between the Alabama State Department of Education and ASTA.
