Acids, Bases, and Salts – A Fifth Grade PowerPoint Introduction
Acids, Bases, and Salts – A Fifth Grade PowerPoint Introduction is a PowerPoint 5th grade level instructional presentation
It includes a PowerPoint presentation of the text along with two editalbe slides that are also available in PDF format to print and issue as classwork, homework, or attach/incorporate into an interactive notebook. Students can also complete the activities during the presentation as reinforcement of the presentation.
The presentation includes:
• Introductory terminology (salt, acid, indicator, base, neutralization reaction, acidity, alkalinity, and pH scale)
• How salts are formed (metal + nonmetal, acid + base)
• Acids, bases, and indicators explained
• How neutralization reactions occur (stomach acid + sodium bicarbonate example)
• Explanation of acidity and alkalinity along with the pH scale
• 4 examples of how salts are/have been used
• Where salts are located (mines and seawater evaporation ponds)
The last two editable slides have white-backgrounds and are used for the printables. The printables are already in PDF form in the package. The white-background pages are not included in the total pages. I include it in case you would like to change any of the data and recreate the printables.
• The first printable activity is a labeling/matching activity where students match descriptions with vocabulary/pictures. Included vocabulary: salt, acid, indicator, base, neutralization reaction, acidity, alkalinity, and pH scale, and deicer
• The second printable activity has students placing acid or base descriptions under the correct headings. Some of the descriptions include lemon, pH>7, and charged hydrogen particles. There are 12 total descriptions.
