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

In this experiment you will expose living yeast cells to three different sugars. The sugars used will be glucose, sucrose, and lactose. When living yeast cells are exposed to these sugars, the cells should begin to utilize the sugars as a food source if they are capable of metabolizing them. Upon using the sugars, the yeast cells will begin to engage in aerobic respiration and/or fermentation. This lab allows students to understand that yeast may use different options for energy production. Students will expose living yeast cells to three different potential food sources and use a pH indicator to indirectly determine the effectiveness of three different sugars as a food source for yeast. Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups.
