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.

The activities in this kit focus on developing a better understanding of what is matter and what the different types of properties are. Students perform a series of experiments focusing on the physical properties of density, smell, color, melting point, boiling point and solubility. Other experiments focus on chemical properties in which students perform a series of reactions as they try and identify an unknown solution. Kit contains enough material for 10 groups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
