9 Chemicalreaction Equations Lessonplan Vinay

Instructional Objectives

  • Write and balance simple chemical equations
  • Describe the significance of a balanced chemical equation
  • Explore the relationship between mole, mass and volume of various reactants and products
  • Classify chemical reactions as combination, decomposition, displacement and double displacement reactions
  • Define oxidation and reduction processes (redox reactions) and correlate these with corrosion and rancidity and other aspects of daily life.

Teaching Process

  • Representation of chemical change in the form of an equation
  • Balancing chemical equations - Lots of practice and relating to law of conservation of mass
  • Significance of balanced chemical equation
  • Different types of chemical reactions eq: displacement, exothermic, redox, thermal decomposition, combustion, double decomposition etc etc - Experiments are carried out to demonstrate the reactions
  • Redox Reactions in terms of Electron gain and Electron Loss.
  • Concept of corrosion and it's prevention

Suggested Reading


  • Conducting experiments to demonstrate different types of chemical reactions
