Learn how to balance chemical equations with this lab and extra practice page! Students use Skittles to model molecules and practice balancing chemical equations. Using Skittles allows students to really see what is going on in the chemical equation, and understand the Law of Conservation of Mass--not to mention the level of engagement when students get to use candy in a lab! I use this lab after Balancing Chemical Equations: Notes and Stations
. That way students have had some practice and know that they have to build the ENTIRE molecule with Skittles, not just add one part.
This product includes:
~Sample student work
~2 student pages and answer keys: one page intended for use as the lab, the other for extra practice or homework
~Short quiz (half sheet) and answer key
