Chemical Reactions

Once I told a chemistry joke, but there was no reaction. Get young chemists involved in changes and reactions with a presentation that begins with physical and chemical changes and chemical reactions. It moves on to chemical equations including the structure of the equation, how to count atoms, and how to balance them. The presentation wraps up with types of reactions.
