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.
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
Cabbage Juice Indicator: Test the pH of household products
Learners make their own acid-base indicator from red cabbage. They use this indicator to test substances around the house.
In this online interactive simulation, learners will test the pH of liquids like coffee, spit, and soap to determine whether each is acidic, basic, or neutral.
Fill 'er Up!
Learners discover that their breath contains carbon dioxide, one of the pollutants found in car exhaust.
In this chemistry activity (page 5 of the PDF), learners make an acid-base indicator using cabbage. Learners then explore how various subtances react with this indicator.
