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

Using the materials provided, students will be able to examine the effects of nutrient deficiency on plants. Specially prepared nutrient solutions (included in the kit) will allow students to deprive each plant of one of seven specific vital nutrients. Over time, students will determine the effects, if any, of the nutrient deprivation through physical observation of the plant's growth. Kit contains enough materials for 3 complete set-ups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
