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

How do scientists identify an unknown solution? What makes one solution different from another? The experiments in this kit will help students understand the impact different chemicals have when added to a solution. Student will test the unknown solutions and determine the identity based on a comparison of the chemical properties to a known sample. Kit contains enough materials for 10 groups. Teacher's manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
