Product Description
This activity is an excellent learning tool for students to master writing balanced equations from word equations. Transitioning from writing one chemical formula at a time in the bonding chapter to writing a full chemical equation is challenging for students. Use of colored pencils on this worksheet is a very effective tool for grasping the needed concepts.

✎Step 1 of this activity requires students to carefully identify whether it's an element (diatomic or not) or compound (ionic or covalent). They then use Colored Pencils to shade different colors for each: diatomic element, non diatomic element, ionic compound, or covalent compound. ✎Step 2 is to write a balanced equation. and ✎Step 3 they identify the type of reaction (single replacement, double replacement, combination, decomposition, or combustion). The word file can be edited if you want to change the directions or add/delete problems.

We do this on day one of translating word equations to balanced equations. I like to put sets of the 4 colored pencils needed in small groups as students work together but on their own worksheets.
