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, students will expose living yeast cells to three different sugars-glucose, sucrose, and lactose. The yeast cells should begin to utilize the sugars as a food source if they are capable of metabolizing them, and will begin to engage in aerobic respiration and/or fermentation. This activity allows students to understand that yeast may use different options for energy production, with varying degrees of effectiveness. A pH indicator will be used to indirectly determine the effectiveness of the three different sugars as a food source for the yeast. Kit contains an Instruction Manual and enough material for 2 groups of students.
