Activity: LEGO Chemistry
Britney Campbell
Spring 2014

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.

How do you think this activity could be improved?

How do you think you could use LEGOs or other building blocks in your classroom?
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.
