Using pH Probes
Students investigate the pH of various household liquids. They write a hypothesis about the pH level for each liquid and then test the pH using pH paper. They then revise their hypotheses and test pH using a pH probe.

Developing Tests to Distinguish Between Similar-Looking Liquids
Each group talks about how to test unknown liquids based on their findings in the previous experiment. In this second of four activities, they test unknowns on wax paper, newspaper, and construction paper. As a stand-alone, this lesson...
