I just completed covering "ionic and covalent" bonding with my studenets. I wanted to bridge the gap to intermolecular forces. I found a great lab called "Sticky Water" from Target Inquiry - Grand Valley State. Before I continue, I have to provide "full disclosure". I spent three years with the Target Inquiry Program at Miami University Ohio (Project TIMU). There is a lab called "Sticky Water" that was written by a teacher in the Grand Valley State program. First, the activity focuses on just water, then ethane, then ethanol.
Students were able to use magnetic water molecules. The activity did a great job of helping to nail down polar bonds and hydrogen bonding. Students also did some modeling with ethane and ethanol. The modeling kit is a bit expensive, but in my opinion, worth every penny. Many TIMU labs are a bit long (10+ pages) which makes them a bit tough to grade. However, most of these labs have teacher "checkpoints". These checkpoints are places where as a teacher I can check with students and, based on their understanding, sign off or not sign off and these checkpoints that can be counted for part of their grade. There are "Going Further" and "Assessment" questions that try, and often do, summarize the main points and check for misconceptions.
Overall, I would recommend this and many of these guided inquiry labs. Students spoke about hydrogen bonding and intermolecular through the checkpoints. Many of the written responses they correctly answered and some they did not. The lab allowed students to show their understanding and ask questions not just through the written word but also through the spoken word of the checkpoints. Even if students did not get the exact correct answer on paper, many were able to explain their understanding through words and the models. Sure, it can be tough to grade. I believe it is fair for the teacher to count the checkpoints and some of the questions instead of having to grade every single written answer to every question.
I would encourage you to take a look at these activities. They are well researched, target inquiry, student centered and hit many well documented misconceptions. If nothing else, I would really encourage you to check out the water model kit. Kids worked really well with them and they were the start of some great conversations.
