In this chemistry worksheet, students read about the differences between substances that are acids and bases. They read about Litmus dye and the pH scale. They experiment with six household substance by testing them with litmus paper to determine if they are acids, bases, or neutrals. They chart the results.
Aside from a mention of a textbook page, this chemistry assignment is a suitable review of acids and bases. It begins by addressing conjugate pairs and acid base reactions. Neutralization and amphoteric properties are also dealt with. The worksheet concludes with two real-life word problems. 
For this acids and bases worksheet, students complete 34 multiple choice and problem solving questions on pH and pOH of solutions. They write net ionic equations for given reactions.
Lewis acids and bases, Brønsted-Lowry acids and bases, ionization, and more are covered by this chemistry handout. It serves as a review of a specific textbook section, but will also serve as a nice review for any general chemistry class. The instructional activity looks professional and is worthwhile.
This video introduces students to the concept of Conjugate Acids and Bases. The important point for students to grasp, and Sal does a nice job illustrating this point, is that for every conjugate acid/base pair, the weaker the acid, the stronger its base will be. The weaker the base, the stronger its conjugate acid will be.
In this chemistry activity, students read and study the chapter to answer 110 problem solving and short answer questions related to acids and bases.
Learners use litmus paper to begin to discover the qualities of acids and bases. They learn about pH by testing clear liquids for acidity with purple cabbage juice as an indicator. The video Streamkeeper, with Bill Nye, and other video resources (not included), along with observations of a potted plant watered with vinegar solution, illuminate the sources and effects of acid rain on the environment. Cross-curricular extensions and links to useful websites are included.
Students prepare a test solution whose color changes when an acid or a base is added. They determine whether various household substances are acids or bases and look for patterns in the results. Students determine how their test solution compares to commerical acid-bases testers; and search for other test solutions.
Students use supporting evidence to predict if common household substances are acids or bases. They determine the pH of the substances and describe the results of the investigation and characteristics of each substance.
In this water equilibrium worksheet, students determine identify the type of acid or base a given compound is, they calculate the pH of solutions at equilibrium and they determine molar solubilities and ranks.
Now that your science class has experimented with pH indicator and identified acids and bases, they attempt to get the cabbage juice indicator back to its original color. This is done through neutralization of the acids and bases that they have been working with throughout this fabulous unit on chemical change. While this is an enriching activity, if you are short on time, this would be one that you could skip. 
Students evaluate pH levels through a solubility experiment. In this pH levels lesson, students list characteristics of acids and bases. Students complete their own pH level experiment. Students go to the GEMS Alien Juice Bar website to test their knowledge of acids and bases for pH solutions.
In this chemistry review worksheet, students explore their knowledge of solutions, acid and bases, nuclear reactions, and radioactive decay as they answer 33 matching, fill in the blank, and short answer questions.
Students explore acids and bases in a fun experimental activity.  In this experimental lesson students participate in an activity that teaches them about acids and bases and they discuss their results. 
Students identify acids and bases. In this chemistry instructional activity, students use red cabbage juice as an indicator of whether the liquid is an acid or base. Students discuss the results.
A variety of skills are needed to complete this assignment. Strong acids and bases are to be described using the Arrhenius model, balanced equations written and analyzed for acid dissociations, and then concentrations calculated for different solutions. This worksheet will come in handy for you to give as homework or as a review in your advanced chemistry course.
Young chemists analyze Titration curves as part of this acids and bases worksheet. Other problems include calculating concentrations, determining equilibrium constants, and a few multiple-choice questions. Since this resource uses a variety of question types, you could use it as a quiz.
In this acid/base worksheet, students fill in a chart given 35 acids and bases and they must identify the type of acid or base and the symbols used in calculations.
In this chemistry worksheet, students answer 50 multiple questions on acids and bases. They calculate the pH and pOH of acid and bases solutions.
In this acid and base worksheet, students answer eight questions related to the different types of acids and bases. They compare acids and bases and their components, they list strong and weak acids and bases and explain why they are categorized this way, and they write equations for the dissociation of acids and bases in water.
