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

Chemical reactions vary greatly. For example, some chemicals react extremely fast like an explosion, while others, like rusting metal, can react over a long period of time. Understanding the factors that influence the rate of a reaction allows the scientist to speed up or slow down reactions as desired. This kit has been designed to introduce students to the concepts of reaction rates through a series of experiments demonstrating the impact of concentration, heat, surface area and catalysts. Kit contains enough materials for 10 groups. Teacher's manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
