TGIF Everyone! We made it through the week!
It was quite a busy and packed week with assessments and content. Today we covered the Law of Conservation of Mass and began learning to balance chemical equations.
Our class Prezi can be found here: http://prezi.com/ly3oyj7hryxm/the-law-of-conservation-of-mass/
We began watching the BrainPop clip on the Law of Conservation of Mass.
Then we copied the definition for the Law of Conservation of Mass in our notebooks. Students were exposed to a completely balanced chemical equation (below) and worked with their shoulder buddy to make observations and inferences about how the equation was solved.
Next, students made a foldable to examine the steps of balancing a chemical equation on page 23 of their notebooks. We walked through balancing a chemical equation, step by step, to understand the entire process. To practice, students were given a worksheet to tape to page 22 and they completed independently, with the aid of a shoulder buddy, or by visiting the Learning Support Station to check their answers.
*ANSWERS to the questions 8 – 10 (balancing chemical equations – solved) can be found below:
Finally, students received their Flashcard Friday List #6. These 5 flashcards are due on Monday, October 7!
Here is an overview of our notebook spread for the day:
