Acid Chemistry Experiment
Testing the pH levels of household products and then experimenting with acids and bases sounds like the start of a great afternoon. Children discuss the properties of acids, how they taste, and what acids do. Then, they conduct several simple experiments where they see the powers of acids firsthand.

Senior Chemistry: Acids and Bases 2
Chemguy lists the characteristics of acids and the characteristics of bases with the use of a whiteboard in his home. The video is educational, but it's not particularly engaging. If one of your chemistry charges misses this lecture in class, you can have them watch this at home to make up missed information.
