Station 1
Evidence of Balanced Equation and
Combinations Initial Observations
Reactions Type of Reaction
Fe - dark silver, flat, Color change,
CuSO + Fe FeSO +
least shiny metal, metal changed to
Copper Sulfate and firm/ not malleable a brown/red
Iron CuSO - translucent color
Single Replacement
turquoise with white (Matched
grains at the bottom Predictions)
Al - shiny, very light 3CuSO + 2Al
silver, malleable Bubbles Al(SO) + 3Cu
Coper Sulfate and
CuSO - translucent (Matched
turquoise with white Predictions) Single Replacement
grains at the bottom Reaction
Mg - lighter silver,
Bubbles, black CuSO + Mg MgSO +
shiny, thin and
shards in Cu
Copper Sulfate and malleable, floats
Magnesium CuSO - translucent
(Matched Single Replacement

Copper Fe(NO) - expected based
translucent, orange on activity series
Mg - lighter silver, 2Fe(NO) + 3Mg
Bubbles, floats
shiny, thin and 3Mg(NO) + 2Fe
Iron Nitrate and to top
malleable, floats
Magnesium (Matched
Fe(NO) - Single Replacement
translucent, orange Reaction
Station 2
Copper Wire Initial Observations
- Shiny/Lustrous
- Copper (reddish-orange) color
- Malleable
Copper After Being Placed in Flame
- Shiny
- Silver/light gray color
Equation 2Cu + O 2CuO
Evidence of a Reaction Color Change in Copper Metal
This was a synthesis reaction because two substances (copper and oxygen) came together to form
one (copper oxide).

Station 3
Sodium Bicarbonate
- White, grainy, resembles sugar
- Caused glass to fog when heated (HO released)
- Caused flame to go out (CO released)
Equation 2NaHCO NaCO + HO + CO
Evidence of a Reaction glass fogged (shows that water was a product), flame was put out
(shows that carbon dioxide was a product).
This was a decomposition reaction because one substance (Sodium bicarbonate) broke down into
three other substances (Sodium carbonate, water, and carbon dioxide).

Station 4
Equation Water + Glue + Borax Slime
Evidence of a reaction slime feels cold, new substance formed when glue solution and borax
solution were combined
This was a synthesis reaction because three substances (water, glue, and borax) combined to
form one substance (borax slime).
