Use this guided practice and independent activity to teach and assess balancing chemical equations.
This activity should be used as a review after students have learned the difference between coefficients and subscripts and is a great way to teach the law of conservation of mass and balancing chemical equations. This activity works well as a follow-up to Counting Atoms Worksheet
to introduce the basics of chemistry.
This activity includes a Guided practice sheet, an independent practice sheet, Teacher Answer Keys, and Instructions.
How it Works
Teacher will print out guided practice sheet and independent practice sheet for each student. Guided sheet can be used as instructional tool and independent practice can be used as classwork or homework to check for understanding. Use keys to check work.
