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

Description
The Mohs hardness scale was invented by Friedrich Mohs in 1812, and has been a useful tool for geologists to determine the identity of different minerals. With this kit, students will become familiar with the Mohs hardness scale and how to perform the hardness test, allowing them to develop vital skills that will help them throughout their studies in earth science. This kit also provides students an opportunity to go out into their local environment to investigate the relative hardness of the minerals around them. Kit contains an Instruction Manual and enough materials for 2 groups of students.
