In this activity, learners examine baking powder, a combination of three powders: baking soda, cream of tartar, and cornstarch.
In this activity on page 2 of the PDF, learners discover how color changes can help scientists distinguish between acids and bases.
Learners observe a sealed container holding a clear colorless liquid. They shake the container and the fluid turns blue. When allowed to sit for a few moments, the fluid turns colorless again.
Learners mix a variety of substances with red cabbage juice. The juice changes color to indicate whether each substance is an acid or a base.
Learners use their knowledge of color changes with red cabbage indicator to neutralize an acidic solution with a base and then neutralize a basic solution with an acid.
In this chemistry demonstration, acid rain is simulated in a petri dish.
This lesson gives full instructions for making cabbage juice indicator, a procedure sheet for learners to record observations as they use the indicator to test materials, and extension activities to d
In this activity, learners mix ingredients in a plastic bag, and then identify three characteristics of a chemical reaction: production of heat, color change, and production of a gas.
In this activity, learners will develop a method to test five similar-looking powders (baking soda, baking powder, cream of tartar, detergent, and cornstarch) with four test liquids (water, vinegar, i
In this introductory activity and demonstration, learners are introduced to the concept that different substances react chemically in characteristic ways.
In this activity on page 8 of the PDF, learners investigate vitamin C. Learners conduct a chemistry experiment to determine if Tang drink mix or orange juice contains more vitamin C.
In this activity, learners use detergent solution to compare two solutions containing vinegar and cream of tartar.
