– About Chlorine Page 1
Today was the big class trip and
Cloe was very excited. Her
and her class were being
taken to Wacko’s Wacky Water
park. They weren’t only going
for fun but they were going to
learn about Chlorine and it’s
works. Cloe could barely sit
still on the ride to school and
couldn’t wait to get to the water
park. When they got to school

belongings to the side and

Humphrey Davy named it and
insisted it was an element.

anymore questions before we
go?” Half of the class raised
their hand. Mrs. Foster called
on Jake.
“ Doesn’t all elements have
negative and positive charges?

“That’s right Jake. Elements all
have protons, neutrons, and
electrons. The number of
protons and electrons are
equal.”
“Well how many does chlorine “Mrs. Foster, when are we leaving?”

Sarah asked strangely.
“ That was a good question Sarah.
Chlorine is very common in nature
and is needed in most forms of life
