Title: A BALANCING ACT: Balancing Chemical Equations
Description: This is a hands-on activity for students to learn how to correctly balance chemical equations. Individual students or groups will manipulate unbalanced chemical equations using color-coded note cards to visualize the step-by-step process of balancing chemical equations. 
Key Words: chemical equation, reactants, products, coefficient, subscript 
Grade Level: 6th, 7th, 8th 
Subject: Science 

Teacher's Request: I have 7th grade science students that are still having difficulty understanding how to balance chemical equations. I would appreciate a hands-on approach that will help them better understand the process. Most of my students have special education needs. Thanks.
