PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Two Complete Lessons In One! Each Lesson: PowerPoint, Student Notes, Homework, Check for Understanding, Quiz, and Complete Teacher Notes. Two lessons included in this product! Choose the one right for your students. One is labeled Standard, and teaches students to balance equations using a “counting/tally” method. This lesson is appropriate for a standard/lower level chemistry class, physical science class, and possibly a middle school class. The other lesson is labeled Honors, and teaches students to balance equations using a “By Inspection” method. This lesson is appropriate for honors chemistry and higher, and possibly some standard chemistry depending on the level of your students. Choose the lesson that is appropriate for your students, or if you’re like me and have multiple preps, use both!

I think older, more advanced students should be able to balance equations by sight, and certainly honors students that are going to be science majors should know this approach before going to college. I teach a seven-step balancing method to make balancing equations by sight quick and easy to follow!

Objectives:
Describe the Law of Conservation of Mass, and explain how it relates to the balanced equation.
Balance chemical equations.

Prior Knowledge for Students:
Students should be very familiar with writing chemical formulas.

Teacher Prep Time:
Just print and go!

Lesson Duration: One class period plus extra practice time before quiz

This is a completely editable product.
Note: This is an animated PowerPoint. It may appear to be busy and even overlapping in the “slide” mode, but will be awesome in the “slide show” mode.
