About the course

A chemical reaction has two parts, the reactants or the original substances, and the products or the changed substances. Using colorful candies, you will explore the four types of chemical reactions and the fundamentals of stoichiometry.

Embrace the science of chemical change! This week's topic is all about reactions and transformation.


Candy Stoichiometry

Course overview


The 4 Types of Chemical Reactions

Students will further explore chemical equations by balancing them and learning about the law of conservation of matter.



Students will learn basic stoichiometry through a candy balancing experiment.


Limiting Reagents

Students will learn about limiting reagents and excess reagents.
