Manufacturer ID - IS2518

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 activity in this kit is designed to introduce students to the concepts of ionic reactions. Students will test a series of microscale chemical combinations watching for reactions. The contents of this kit have been optimized to minimize risks of cross contamination, teacher preparation and waste generation. This kit has all of the materials 10 groups. Teachers Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
