Watch some of these video clips to see some amazing chemical reactions, based on the elements and how they react.
Balancing equations activity
Select the level you want to play at and then use the drop down menus to balance the equations.
Try one of the Chembalancer activities on this website. You'll need to enter the number 1 into the appropriate box, unlike when you write out a balanced equation normally.
