In this easy chemistry activity, learners submerge pennies in different liquids (water, lemon juice, vinegar, liquid hand soap, salt water, and baking soda mixed with water) to observe which best clea
In this activity, learners cut out a fish and then "paint" it using universal indicator and acids and bases.
Ocean acidification is a problem that humans will have to deal with as we release more and more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
Learners use a universal indicator to test the amount of sodium hydroxide needed to change the pH of plain water compared with the amount needed to change the pH of gelatin.
Learners combine different plant solutions -- made from fruits, vegetables, and flowers -- with equal amounts of vinegar (acid), water (neutral), and ammonia (base).
DNA is the thread of life. Encoded in its genetic sequence is the information that makes each of us unique. This activity allows you to see long, stringy strands of DNA extracted from wheat germ.
In this experiment, learners will explore whether increased carbon dioxide makes our oceans more basic or more acidic.
In this experiment, learners try different liquids to see which ones clean pennies best. Liquids to try include water, lemon juice, cola, vinegar, and dishwashing detergent.
In this chemistry challenge, learners work to figure out which of four juices are real, and which is just food coloring and sugar.
Use grape juice, baking soda, water and vinegar to make acid and base indicator paper! This activity contains a recipe and instructions for the indicator paper.
In this activity, learners write invisible messages on goldenrod paper, and make the message appear and disappear using acids and bases.
In this activity (page 2 of PDF under GPS: Cave Swallows Activity), learners will model how caves are formed by placing one piece of chalk in a cup of vinegar and another piece in a cup of water, then
In this activity, learners discover how a cabbage juice indicator helps identify acids and bases, and how iodine indicates the presence of starch.
Learners are challenged to create solutions that conduct electricity and make a buzzer buzz (or an LED light up).
