Product Description
Complete Lesson: PowerPoint, Student Notes, Homework, Check for Understanding, and Complete Teacher Notes. Before students get into balancing chemical equations, they need to know exactly what the equation is saying. I like teaching this lesson before I start balancing equations because I think it gets the students to begin looking at the chemical equation as a whole—what it is saying—before worrying about the numbers. It’s a translation that I want them to be able to read. I use to teach balancing and then writing equations, but I have had much greater success teaching in this order. I think it gives a more natural progression to the unit.

In this lesson, students will write chemical formula equations from word equations and word problems. They will use states of matter symbols, arrows, and conditions symbols. Students will also be introduced to the seven diatomic elements, and learn how to identify them in a reaction, and properly write them in an equation.

Objectives:
Write chemical equations from word equations and word problems.
Use common symbols such as states of matter and arrows when writing chemical equations.
Name the seven diatomic elements and write them correctly in a chemical equation.

Prior Knowledge for Students:
Students should be able to write chemical formulas.

Teacher Prep Time:
Just print and go!

Lesson Duration: One class period
