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

The periodic table is more than just a list of elements. The activities in this kit focus on developing a better understanding of why periodic trends occur in the elements. Students will perform two sets of experiments focusing on the alkaline earth metals and the halogens groups. The first set of experiments students search for patterns as they look at the reactivity of the alkaline earth metals. The second set of experiments form small amounts of solubilized halogen gases as a colorful way of measuring reactivity within the halogen group. Kit contains enough material for 8 groups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
