This lesson contains fantastic chemical animations to demonstrate the need to observe the law of conservation of mass in chemical reaction equations... the symbolic equivalent thereof being the balancing of equations.
I spent years simplifying the logic and treatment of balancing standard chemical equations until I could reliably teach it in one 45 minute period. My trick are the tips and things to look out for that I have included in the lesson.
This lesson is highly organized and structured, and the practice questions are all easily solvable using the logic contained in the lesson.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
