Chemical Changes – A Fifth Grade PowerPoint Introduction is a PowerPoint 5th grade level instructional presentation
It includes a PowerPoint presentation of the text along with one editable slide that is also available in PDF format to print and issue as classwork, homework, or attach/incorporate into an interactive notebook. Students can also complete the activity during the presentation as reinforcement for the presentation.
The presentation includes:
• Introductory terminology (reactant, product, chemical reaction, reactivity, and precipitate).
• The relationship between reactants and products in chemical reactions.
• Proof of chemical change occurring. Video clip of baking soda and vinegar.
• Reactivity of alkali metallic elements. Video clip of lithium and water.
• Reactivity of halogens. Video clip of Flourine.
• 6 Ways to know if chemical reactions have occurred (precipitates formed, gases being released, temperature change, tarnish formation, release of energy, and color changes). Video clips for each example provided.
• Respiration and photosynthesis introduced.
The last slide is white-background and used for the printable. The printable is already in PDF form in the package. The white-background page is not included in the total pages. I include it in case you would like to change any of the data and recreate the printable.
The review slide/printable:
• The review/printable activity includes a labeling/matching activity where students match descriptions with vocabulary/pictures. Included vocabulary: reactant, product, chemical reaction, reactivity, and precipitate. The second part has students identifying from a list of pictures/descriptions which are chemical reactions (vs. physical).
