Year 8 Science Reactions

In Chemistry Year 8 have been learning about the reactions of metals with acids and oxygen. They have been able to write instructions to teach other years how to name the salt produced when a metal and an acid react. They are now learning how to write the chemical equations and balanced symbol equations used to represent metals reacting with oxygen in the air. The class enjoyed reacting metals in oxygen by burning them in air, but eye protection had to be worn when looking at bright lights.
