What's the Solution?

Red cabbage is more than just a garnish for your salad. When blended into juice, it is a practical and inexpensive acid/base indicator. Demonstrate chemical reactions by mixing red cabbage juice with either vinegar or baking soda. Small groups will enjoy watching the color change from its the neutral purple to either a blue green for a base or red for an acid. Discussion questions, answers, references and a PowerPoint assignment are great extensions.

Your site is extremely easy to maneuver, and your search engine sorts beautifully--down to the grade level and super-specific subject matter. As a graduate student, studying for my teacher's license, I've found great, creative inspiration in the content links on your site. I count on your site more than any other I've found to date.
