This is a 3-page worksheet that prompts for balancing, identifying, and writing word equations. There are 23 chemical equations and 4 types of equations: synthesis, decomposition, single replacement, double replacement. Use on paper or digitally as a Google Doc version is included.

There is also an "Easel Activity" included - NO PREP - just assign because all of the answer boxes have been created for you and your students! Easy-Peasey!

Answer key included.

The preview is the full document in pdf form so that you can evaluate the usefulness for your needs.

Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction. Emphasis is on using mathematical ideas to communicate the proportional relationships between masses of atoms in the reactants and the products, and the translation of these relationships to the macroscopic scale using the mole as the conversion from the atomic to the macroscopic scale. Emphasis is on assessing students’ use of mathematical thinking and not on memorization and rote application of problem-solving techniques. Assessment does not include complex chemical reactions.
Construct and revise an explanation for the outcome of a simple chemical reaction based on the outermost electron states of atoms, trends in the periodic table, and knowledge of the patterns of chemical properties. Examples of chemical reactions could include the reaction of sodium and chlorine, of carbon and oxygen, or of carbon and hydrogen. Assessment is limited to chemical reactions involving main group elements and combustion reactions.
