Manufacturer ID - IS9355

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

This comprehensive kit incorporates a variety of scientific techniques all themed around common kitchen materials. Students will perform chromatography on commercial food colors, use chemical tests to identify an unknown cooking ingredient, examine the protein digesting ability of a common meat tenderizing enzyme, use titration to quantify vitamin C levels and then test an unknown juice or soda (not provided), and lastly examine some of the differences and similarities in the materials used to clean up (soap, hand dishwashing detergent, and machine dishwashing detergent). Kit contains enough materials for 15®groups. Teacher's Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
