This FREE science demo is perfect to use on Valentine's Day because let's face it, who doesn't love a secret message?!
This Secret Message demo shows indicators react in the presence of acids or bases. In this case, phenolphthalein is used to reveal “secret messages” that have been written using a basic solution. Demo set-up is easy and quick with long-lasting results!
Students do NOT need to have knowledge of indicators to be "wowed" by this demonstration.
In this activity students use a simple cabbage juice indicator to test a variety of substances for levels of acidity. Appropriate for grades 4-7.
Feedback is always appreciated!

Students learn about the pH scale by discovering common examples of substances with different pH values. Students use the Internet to search substances with specific pH values, then draw and label those substances in the worksheet. Students then color the given pH scale reflected in pH indicator paper.
Acid and base reactions are one of my favorite reactions in chemistry. This activity makes learning about acids and bases really fun! Students have the opportunity to use soda to test the concentration of acid in each soda. This activity has been adapted to meet the different chemistry course levels. Your students will love to find out how much acid is in the soda they drink. Make chemistry fun!

This organizer covers the following eight topics - a list of 18 common acids, a list of 18 common bases, identification & properties of acids, identification & properties of bases, neutralization reactions, neutralization reaction examples, a review of solubility rules, and a review of naming common ions.
This document is a template for the teacher who can then instruct his or her students on how to mimic the organizer on their own sheet of paper. Once completed, the organizer makes a g
This worksheet guides students through a simple activity to practice using litmus indicator to identify liquids as acidic or basic (alkaline). It begins with an introduction to pH (including a pH scale) and indicators, and then guides students to test common household liquids using red and blue litmus paper.
If desired, the activity can be modified to test other indicators.
Through completion of the activity, students will demonstrate their ability to identify liquids as acid or alkali usi

This lab is meant as a supplemental activity for middle school physical science students learning about acids, bases, pH and neutralization. It is great for homeschooled students, as all of the chemicals used in the experiment are common household chemicals. It requires basic knowledge of lab equipment, lab safety, and measurement techniques.
This package includes:
1. A concept review of acids, bases, neutra

In this activity worksheet, on strong acids, weak acids, strong bases and weak bases, students give an example of complete dissociation and partial dissociation. They identify the five major properties of strong acids and strong bases and how acid strength of oxoacids and polyprotic ions changes across and down the periodic table.
This file includes a 7 page PowerPoint presentation, student worksheet and worksheet solution page. It goes through the definition of pH, common indicators, the properties of acids and bases and common examples of acids and bases.
This lesson introduces the concepts of Acids and Bases in a way that's easy to understand for Physical Science students. It also covers indicators, buffers, neutralization, and the uses of acids and bases.
This activity is a favourite with children and adults. Its simple and fun. This download includes easy to follow instructions as well as worksheets for students to record their pre-observations, predictions, observations, and conclusions. There are 2 instruction sheets included, one geared toward younger or special education students, and one geared to older students. This is a fun, hands-on, sensory activity and stem / steam activity (science/art). It is also good for fine motor skill developme

This is a whole class fluency and vocabulary game. Every students gets a card that contains a question and an answer to another cards question. To begin the game, start with any question (the cards come full circle no matter where you begin). Whoever has the correct answer, reads it saying "I have ____", then that student reads their question, "Who has ___?" The game continues until all cards are shared.
My classes love friendly competition so I time how long it takes to complete the circle. T

Great way to get students engaged in the classroom! Students arrange the 24 small triangles to make a hexagon whose sides correctly pair information about acids and bases including conjugate acid-base pairs, pH and [H+], pOH and [OH-], and more. There are a couple of answers that can be form multiple pairs which makes it more of a challenge to students.Copy to cardstock and cut out so you can reuse these sets multiple times. I used a variety of colors of paper so if I found a lost card, it would
This is a very helpful guide for naming acids and bases. I give this to students so they can remember the naming rules when they complete assignments on their own. The information is easy to read, organized, and provides examples.
