Students explore ways to use indicators to distinguish between acids and bases. They conduct an experiment to model and discuss the harmful effect of acid rain in our living and non-living environment.
In this acid/base equilibrium worksheet, students are given examples of how to solve problems based on the types of acids and bases present in solutions with 5 steps.
Ninth graders investigate acids and bases. In this pH lesson, 9th graders test, observe, and discuss  natural acids, bases and the pH scale. Students will construct a KLH chart and then use litmus paper to test an acid, base, and water. This lesson includes instructional tips, differentiated instruction, several extensions, and necessary attachments.
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 are introduced to the concept of acids and bases and arouse curiosity about acids and bases in daily life. They are introduced to the measurement of soil pH. Pupils are introduced to the effect of soil pH on nutrient cycling and loss. They are also introduced to the environmental impact of soil acidity.
Students investigate the acidity and alkalinity of common household products in an experiment. They use red cabbage juice and litmus paper to show the difference between strong acids and bases as they work with vinegar, dish washing liquid, baking soda, and a number of other substances. After the experiment, they analyze the data that they collect.
Students explore the use of acid and base pH indicators. The teacher saturates an indicator sponge with congo red solution. Afterwards, the sponge is placed in a blue base solution. Students observe that the blue sponge actually turns red. They discuss the explanations for the color change.
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.
In this water equilibria worksheet, students calculate the pH of solutions, they fill in a table with the type of acid or base given a compound and it's concentration and they calculate approximate solubilities for salts.
Students investigate foods that are indicators, and acids and bases. In this food chemistry lesson plan, students test household products with litmus paper and with food indicators. They use blackberry, onion and red cabbage indicators to test acids and bases.
Young chemists learns about acids and bases by coming up with a solution that will test for each. They also access the Internet to perform research. They are encouraged to contact young scholars in other schools by conducting the experiment at the same time and comparing results. The experiment is simple to run, and the materials needed are easy to find.
Students list the common properties of acids and bases. They classify substances as acids or bases, by using pH and litmus tests and are able to explain the pH scale. They participate in a lab activity which reinforce their understanding.
Young scholars evaluate pH levels through a solubility experiment. In this pH levels lesson, students list characteristics of acids and bases. Young scholars 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 acids and bases worksheet, learners read about the differences between acids and bases and then complete a table comparing the characteristics of both. Then students determine if the given statements describe an acid, base, or salt. This worksheet has 1 graphic organizer and 21 matching questions.
Students describe characteristics and common uses of acids and bases. They describe the role of natural indicators in the chemistry of acids and bases after testing and making observations on a variety of plant extracts. Students observe that dyes from plants have distinct physical and chemical properties.
In this chemistry review learning exercise, 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. 
In this acid and base worksheet, students classify compounds as acids or bases and write down its equation. Students calculate pH of chemical compounds. This worksheet has 14 problems to solve.
Sixth graders perform laboratory modules to investigate topics which included measuring pH of household products, evaluating heart rate, and determining CO2 levels of exhaled breath. they measure pH of household products to determine acids from bases.
Students identify acids and bases. In this chemistry lesson, students use red cabbage juice as an indicator of whether the liquid is an acid or base. Students discuss the results.
