Lab - Types of Chemical Reactions, Synthesis, Decomposition, Single Replacement, Double Replacement, Combustion, Balancing equations
The purpose of this lab activity is to teach your students how to identify the types of chemical reactions. Students will be able to identify the products of each reaction through observation and writing chemical equations. All major types of reactions are examined: synthesis, decomposition, combustion, single replacement, and double replacement. Helpful teacher prep guide and great lab organization make this lab easy for students to record their data and even easier for teachers to grade!
