Introduce, practice, review, and assess chemical equations with your students using these fun interactive Google slides! Students will learn how to read chemical equations, count the number of atoms present in an equation, and practice balancing chemical equations. This resource is perfect for the Google Classroom or another digital learning platform! Use these slides in class with guided instruction, as peer work, or as homework. Extra practice and challenge problems are included to help you differentiate the concepts.
These interactive slides include:
-Detailed descriptions and instructions for reading chemical equations and identifying reactants/products
-Instructions and practice problems for counting the number of atoms present in a chemical reaction
-Video with step-by-step instructions for balancing equations
-Online chemical equation balancing game
-Practice problems for balancing chemical equations
-2 quizzes for student assessment
In this lesson, students will:
-Learn that a chemical reaction demonstrates the ratio of reactants to products
-Recognize the difference between reactants and products
-Learn how to read a chemical equation
-Differentiate between coefficients and subscripts in an equation
-Practice counting the number of atoms represented in a chemical equation
-Determine if a chemical equation is balanced
-Practice balancing chemical equations
-Complete extra review problems or challenge problems for differentiated learning

Develop and use a model to describe how the total number of atoms does not change in a chemical reaction and thus mass is conserved.
Disciplinary Core Idea
PS1.B: Chemical Reactions
Substances react chemically in characteristic ways. In a chemical process, the atoms that make up the original substances are regrouped into different molecules, and these new substances have different properties from those of the reactants.
The total number of each type of atom is conserved, and thus the mass does not change.
