Students will learn about acids and bases through a class discussion and then test a dilute acid and dilute base with neutral litmus paper to learn how the paper indicates something is acidic or basic. Once that skill is learned they can move on to test some common items that would be found around their house to determine if they are acids or bases. Optional: Extra litmus paper is included to test more items either from home or around the school building for a greater understanding of acids and bases. The activity contains enough materials for 6 groups of students.

Safety Data Sheet

This kit and the accompanying teacher's guide have been developed by the American Chemical Society through grants from the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health. Through the lessons in this lab students will learn how human activity may affect natural water sources. Using an indicator, students will determine how acids and bases impact the pH of water. Upon completion of this activity, students will then create carbon dioxide gas through a chemical reaction and determine if the carbon dioxide could have affected the pH of a local stream.
