Chemical Change Poem

Chemical change,
Atoms changed,
Properties different too…
Chemical Change,
I’m feeling strange,
I’ve changed to something new…
Chemical Change,
I’m feeling strange,
My bonds, I think they’re breaking…
Chemical change, I’m rearranged,
Like change that’s caused by baking…
burned toast
Baking, or burning,

Combining things,
Making things react…
Like Na + Cl makes table salt,
We know it’s just a fact!

Oxidize, or use a flame,
To make things hot, combust!!!
Iron tends to oxidize,
And makes a thing called rust…

Chemical change,
I’m feeling strange,
I’m different, how ’bout you?
Chemical change,
The kind of change,
That gives us something new!

What is a Chemical Change?

A chemical change is a change in which the bonds between atoms are rearranged to create new substances with different properties.

For Example, table salt is a mixture of two elements- Sodium (Na) and a chloride ion (Cl), that have very different properties from the crystals we sprinkle on our food.
