Indicators For Acids and Bases
Fourth graders compare the color of cabbage water when acids and bases are mixed in. In this acids and bases lesson plan, 4th graders use cabbage water and mix in acids and bases that the teacher prepares before hand. They observe the color change and compare it to the ph scale associating it with and acid or a base.

Acid Rain Lesson Plan Activity 2 - Understanding the Difference Between an Acid And a Base
Students experiment to determine the difference between an acid and a base. They study the concept of adding a buffering agent to make an acid more basic. They study the pH scale.

The Acid Test
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.

Introduction to pH in Soil and Demonstration of a Simple Soil Test Procedure
Young scholars explain why farmers and gardeners may add nutrients to the soil to raise the pH level. They examine the pH scale. They make observations, collect and analyze data and draw a conclusion based on the data.

Experimenting with pH
What is pH and how is it measured? What happens when acids and bases mix? In an extensive 5E experiment and lesson, young chemists create their own pH paper, test the pH levels of several substances, evaluate their results, develop and perform their own experiment, and share with the class.

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.

AGRICULTURE SCIENCE PROJECTS
Scholars dicover the fact that they do not have to live on a farm or own a garden to do an agricultural science project. They research agriculture by using their reading skills and creative thinking. Next, they identify and analyze how different types of fertilizers affect plant growth and how various treatments change how fast seeds sprout.

The Power of pH: Changing Ocean Chemistry
Did you know that driving 2,500 miles results in an entire ton of carbon emissions added to the atmosphere? This tidbit and others on how carbon dioxide is also increasing in ocean water are the focus of a powerful lesson. Participants are introduced to ocean acidification with a video, and then they carry out two investigations that will reveal the increasing pH of the world's oceans.

Do We Need to Wear a Rainhat? Acid Rain: Causes, Effects, and Possible Solutions
Acid rain, and how it affects the environment, is the focus of this Earth science lesson. During the study, learners evaluate measures to reduce acid rain, and design an investigation to demonstrate the conection between a hypothesis and an experimental design.

Water Quality and Environmental Pollution
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.
