In this lab experience, students carry out investigations to properly balance a chemical reaction and identify reaction types. These four labs help students understand how scientists use scientific notation to represent chemical reactions. Students also gain a deeper understanding of the Law of Conservation of Mass when they see their bingo chips equal on both sides of the reaction. Witnessing chemical reactions with chemicals is eye opening to the students and aids them in getting a deeper understanding and appreciation for equation writing. Furthermore, modeling chemical reactions with bingo chips is a safe method to introduce a commonly tough topic in chemistry.
