Find Chemical Equation educational ideas and activities
Graphic organizers, photos, diagrams, and text bring the world of chemical reactions to life. By viewing this presentation, young chemists learn how to recognize when a chemical reaction has occurred, and how to balance chemical equations. Follow this comprehensive lesson with an actual laboratory exercise in recognizing chemical changes.
In this balancing instructional activity, students balance chemical equations by placing coefficients in front of given reactants and products. They also indicate the state of matter for each substance. They also write products of reactions given the reactants and balance the equations.
In this stoichiometry worksheet, students solve thirty problems using the process of stoichiometry to find moles, molecules, and masses of substances in chemical reactions. Students balance chemical equations, find limiting reagents and use critical thinking to determine heat of reactions, percent yield and percent composition.
Students are introduced to the process of balancing chemical equations. First, students see that a chemical equation describes the chemical reaction that takes place when two elements are combined together. In the world of chemistry, that reaction must be written out in an equation that is balanced; meaning the elements that were combined together are represented equally on both sides of the equation.
Ninth graders explain how atoms and molecules form different substances during chemical reactions and how these processes require losing, gaining or sharing electrons. They correctly write chemical formulas and show how a balanced chemical equation must have the same number and types of atoms on each side of the arrow.
Wow! This comprehensive collection of slides will walk your chemistry class through the foundation of chemical reactions, teach them to balance equations, differentiate types of reactions, and calculate stoichiometry problems. This will save you time in creating individual informative slides, but you might want to rearrange them in a way that is more coherent. Also, you probably would not want to teach all of this material in one day! Please also note that hyperlinks to worksheets do not work.
