    B represents atoms bonded to the central atom. B can be identical atoms or different atoms. Directions: 1. Find the other students who have the same color balloons as you. Have someone inflate a balloon as much as possible without popping it. Inflate your balloon(s) to the same size. 2. Using the patterns below, tie the appropriate number and color balloons together. For example, for the AB2E model, tie 2 blue balloons and a white balloon together. For groups of 4 balloons, it is easier to tie 2 balloons together and then the other 2 balloons together, then twist the two groups together. For five-balloon groups, make sets of 2 and 3 balloons and twist. For six balloons, use 3 sets of 2 balloons twisted together. 3. Attach a piece of string to hang the finished model from the ceiling.
