Activity: LEGO Chemistry
Transcript of Activity: LEGO Chemistry
TLW predict the products when given reactants and balance chemical equations.
TLW name the compounds in the activity using words and chemical symbols.
TLW determine the type of reaction (composition, decomposition, single replacement, double replacement, or combustion) when given the reactants of an equation.

1. As a group, write the reactants of the equation on the dry erase board.
2. Predict the products of the reaction.
3. Balance the equation.
4. Write out the names of each compound of the reaction.
5. Construct the equation using LEGOS and the LEGO Color Key.
6. Take a picture of each equation as it is completed on the dry erase board using the technology provided. These images will be collected and used as part of your grade.
CLE 3221.Math.1: Understand the mathematical principles associated with the science of chemistry.
CLE 3221.3.2: Analyze chemical and nuclear reactions.
CLE 3221.3.3: Explore the mathematics of chemical formulas and equations.
LEGOs (an assortment to fit the lesson)
Small Dry Erase Boards
Dry Erase Markers
*Students will be cooperating in groups, but this activity could be done in partners or individually.
LEGO Color Key
Light Blue: Chlorine
Dark Blue: Carbon
-You can order specific sets of LEGO bricks to suit your activity or classroom needs.
-MIT Edgerton Center "Chemical Reactions" was the inspiration for my creation of this activity. You can access more information about the LEGO Chemistry activities plus information about Biology LEGO activities as well.
