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.

Description
The world's ocean system contain a dynamic thermohaline current system that is responsible for many aspects of our environment. The experiments in this kit have been designed to help visualize the impact solutions of different density have on each other when mixed. Students will measure the salinity of three different water samples representing three major salt water bodies, as well as perform an experiment in which they will observe the flow patterns when different density solutions are mixed. This kit has enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher's Guide and Student Study Guide Copymasters included.
