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 lab allows students to learn about two forms of passive transport, diffusion and osmosis, and compare and contrast the similarities and differences between the two processes. Students will first investigate the process of diffusion, and determine the effect of solution temperature on the rate of diffusion of a solute. Then, they will set up an environment that is likely to facilitate osmosis, and gather data to determine whether or not osmosis occurred over a set period of time. Kit contains an Instruction Manual and enough material for 2 groups of students.
