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
Often times, when collecting evidence at a crime scene, investigators may recover substances they are unable to identify in the field. Along with evidence such as fingerprints, hair, fibers, etc., there may be traces of unknown chemicals or powders left behind by the perpetrator or perpetrators. Evidence of this nature is sent to the crime lab for identification. In this experiment, you will use your observation skills, senses, and chemical tests on a series of known substances as well as two unknown substances. You will then attempt to identify the mystery substances based on your observations and recorded data. Kit contains enough material for 15 groups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
