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

Description
Polymers affect every aspect of our daily lives. From the plastics we use to the clothes we wear; polymer chemistry is everywhere. In this kit, students will perform three fun and fascinating activities involving polymers. In the first two activities, students will perform a cross-linking procedure on polymers to create polymer "worms" and the classic "slime." In the third activity, students will investigate the properties of a super-absorbent polymer, capable of absorbing hundreds of times its own weight in water, to create instant "polymer snow." The kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
