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.
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.
6th - 8th Science CCSS: Designed
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.
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.
4th - 12th Science
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.
5th - 8th Science
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.
3rd - 8th Science
pH Indicators And Tests for Acids And Bases
Students create various pH indicators and test unknown solutions to determine if they are an acid or a base. After the experiment, students take a quiz, found on a website imbedded in this lesson, on what they observed and discovered.
9th - 12th Visual & Performing Arts
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.
4th - 8th Science
Ionization of Water/The pH Scale
The ionization of water is explained, acids and bases are defined. Young chemists learn to perform calculations using the equilibrium constant for water. The PowerPoint concludes with information about acid rain. This is a well-organized and visually appealing presentation that would save you plenty of preparation time.
