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

Learn how environmental scientists study pollution by testing air and water samples from your local area! This kit includes nine different tests to determine the air and water quality of samples you collect from your community. Investigate your water quality by testing for dissolved oxygen levels, water hardness, pH, and phosphate and chloride content. Then, test for particulate and chemical pollutants in the air, measure smoke density, and learn how excess carbon dioxide in air can affect your environment. Teacher's Manual and Student Worksheets included. There are enough materials for a class of 30 working in groups.
