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
In the small community of Riverside, police have noticed a recent increase in drug-related activity. Under orders of the mayor, the police department was tasked with solving the problem. After extensive investigation the police determined the distributor of the drugs is most likely one of six suspects. The Riverside police have asked the police department from the neighboring town of Mapledale to assist in the investigation. In this activity your students work for the Mapledale Forensic Analysis Lab and have been asked to analyze a variety of forensic evidence, including fingerprints, unknown powders, urine specimens, money, and handwriting samples, to assist the Riverside police in determining which is the most likely suspect. Kit includes enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher's Guide and Student Analysis copymasters are included.
