This zip file contains many different activities (32 pages of student handouts and 2 PowerPoints with a total of 111 slides) which can be used to compose a unit for chemistry students involving the basics on Naming of Chemical Compounds and Types of Chemical Reactions. Topics in this unit include Hydrates, naming binary ionic and covalent compounds, naming ternary compounds, as well as writing the formulas for these compounds when given the name. The balancing of chemical equations (non-redox) is also included in this unit. While these lessons were originally designed to correlate to the performance indicators of the New York State Chemistry - Physical Setting curriculum, the components of this lesson may be easily used in other chemistry or physical science courses as well. The components this unit addresses in the NGSS Standards and Common Core Standards are indicated at the end of this description.
The components of this lesson package can easily be displayed to students using and LCD projector and may be readily modified into formats facilitating smartboard technology.
Many documents are included in both word docx as well as pdf format to allow editing for specific teacher needs.
The specific contents of the learning package includes the following items (the page count for these items are actual student handouts as answer key page counts are not included):
-- Marzano self assessment scale including learning goals and Common Core Reading/Writing and Mathematics Standards for students specific to this unit (3 pages)
-- Cloze notes handout for students with learning goals and Common Core Standards to accompany lesson PowerPoint (8 pages)

Students who demonstrate understanding can:
HS-PS1-2. 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.
HS-PS1-7. Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
Common Core State Standards Connections:
WHST.9-12.2 Write informative/explanatory texts, including the narration of historical events, scientific procedures/ experiments, or technical processes.
MP.2 Reason abstractly and quantitatively.
