Understanding Chemical Equations

10th - Higher Ed

In this chemical equations worksheet, students identify the reactants and the products, state what phase each is in, and state the mole ratios of all the products and reactants. Students complete 10 problems.

Resource Details


Stoichiometry Lab

Tenth graders calculate the amount of a chemical product. In this chemical reaction lab, 10th graders compute how much product will be produced when measured amounts of reactants are used. They calculate the percent yield gained from the total recovered. They will be working with simple household items, baking soda and vinegar.


For 15 different reactions, a balanced equation and answers to quite difficult questions are needed.  Terminology about substrates, ions and oxidation states is included.

Conservation During Chemical Reactions

For this chemical reaction worksheet, students are given the details of an experiment where sodium chloride and silver nitrate are mixed in a chemical reaction. Students answer nine questions about the chemical reaction, they determine the products made and write an equation for the reaction.

Everything about Equations

In this chemical reactions worksheet, students are given fifteen unbalanced equations and they must identify the reaction types, the phases of the products, the signs that a chemical change occurred and the sum of the coefficients of the balanced equations.

Chemical Interactions

Students perform scientific investigations to observe chemical reactions.  In this chemical reaction lesson students read a passage and identify the cause and effect. 

Chemical Equations and Reactions

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. 

Chemical Equations

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.

Chemicals, Chemicals, Everywhere

Students divide substances into categories: made of chemicals/not made of chemicals, synthetic/naturally occurring, and toxic/nontoxic. They observe a mystery chemical and determine what precautions they need to take when handling an unknown substance.

Yeast Fermentation

Pupils measure the temperature change involved in the production of carbon dioxide by yeast. They also identify products and reactants in a chemical and balance the equation.

Chemical Compounds

For this chemical compounds worksheet, students write the name of compounds from their chemical formula, balance equations, write electronic configurations for elements, and draw Lewis dot structures. This worksheet has 8 fill in the blank, 12 word problems, and 18 short answer questions.
