Aligned to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) MS-PS1-2 & MS-PS1-5, this project is designed to assess students' knowledge of chemical reactions at the end of a chemistry unit. Students are guided with this rough draft sheet to balance a real life chemical reaction and create a model of the chemical reaction. Rubric included.
MS-PS1-2 Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
MS-PS1-5 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.
