Cleaning with DirtAdd to list Details
Learners build a filter from old soda bottles and dirt. They create polluted water, and pour it through their filter to clean it.
Acid (and Base) Rainbows
Learners use red cabbage juice and pH indicator paper to test the acidity and basicity of household materials. The activity links this concept of acids and bases to acid rain and other pollutants.
Acid Rain Effects
Learners conduct a simple experiment to model and explore the harmful effects of acid rain (vinegar) on living (green leaf and eggshell) and non-living (paper clip) objects.
What's Hiding in the Air?: Acid Rain Activity
As a model of acid rain, learners water plants with three different solutions: water only, vinegar only, vinegar-water mixture.
In this activity (located on pages 9-14 of PDF), learners visit a cemetery to examine the distinguishing characteristics of rock weathering.
Water Quality and pH Levels in Aquatic Ecosystems
In this fun and in depth hands-on experiment, learners test various liquid samples (distilled water, lemon juice, vinegar, and baking soda mixed with water) to determine their pH levels and identify e
In this activity (on page 8), learners model how marble statues and buildings are affected by acid rain.
Acid RainAdd to list Details
In this chemistry demonstration, acid rain is simulated in a petri dish.
Rock BottomsAdd to list Details
Learners add acid rain (nitric acid) to two cups that represent lakes. One cup contains limestone gravel and the other contains granite gravel.
Iron in the EnvironmentAdd to list Details
In this chemistry activity (on page 2 of the PDF), learners corrode a penny in a cup with vinegar, salt water, and a source of iron (nails, paper clips, or twist ties).
Fill 'er Up!
Learners discover that their breath contains carbon dioxide, one of the pollutants found in car exhaust.
