Balancing with beads


Make models of the molecules in the chemical equation using beads. Afterwards using beads, balance the chemical equation. Fill in the blanks in front of each molecule after you balance with the beads. Use the table below to guide you with what bead color represents what atoms. For the last two atoms (Zn and Br) choose colors besides the ones already used in the table. Save 3 of your models to show Ms. Hassan. Element H Cl O N I Na K Zn Br Color white green Red purple black Yellow blue

Classic Chem Balancer game.


Worksheet to teach balancing equations Directions: 1. Start Internet Explorer go to Classic Chembalancer. 2. Click Directions. Read and understand the directions. 3. Click OK. 4. Click on Start Game 5. Try entering some numbers in the text boxes in front of each molecule. What happens? 6. If you forget the directions, click on the How to Play the Game link. Click OK when you finish reading them to return to the game. 7. When you think you have typed the right numbers in all the boxes, click the Balanced button. 8. If you didnt get it right, try again. 9. If you did get it right, then fill in the correct answers on this worksheet for #1. 10. Repeat steps 7-9 for the other 10 questions. 11. Now do the two problems on the back of this worksheet. You can draw the molecules just like the program did to figure out the answer. Questions Fill in the blanks below as you go though the game. This is so I have a record that you did your assignment. 1. _____ Fe + _____ S --> _____ FeS 2. _____ H2 + _____ Cl2 --> _____ HCl 3. _____ Mg + _____ O2 --> _____ MgO 4. _____ O2 + _____ H2 --> _____ H2O 5. _____ HgO --> _____ Hg + _____ O2 6. _____ Ca + _____ H2O --> _____ Ca(OH)2 + _____ H2 7. _____ CH4 + _____ O2 --> _____ CO2 + _____ H20 8. _____ Na2O2 + _____ H2SO4 --> _____ Na2SO4 + _____ H2O2 9. _____ N2 + _____ H2 --> _____ NH3 10. _____ Al + _____ O2 --> _____ Al2O3

Name:_______________ Class_________________

11. _____ KMnO4 --> _____ K2O + _____ MnO + _____ O2

Draw the molecules just like the program did to figure out the answer to #12 and #13.

12. _____ Na + _____ H2O --> _____ NaOH + _____ H2

Fact for #12: Sodium metal, Na, is stored in kerosene so it won't react with water vapour. When added to water it reacts quickly to make hydrogen gas.

13. _____ H2SO4 + _____ NaOH --> Na2SO4 + _____ H2O

Name:_______________ Class_________________

Fact for #13: This is an example of an acid base reaction. Acid + base --> Salt + Water
