This 2-page "fill-in the blank" handout outlines the definitions and characteristics of acids and bases. Students also can reference the information on pH scale values and the colour of various indicators in order to differentiate between acid and bases. The handout concludes with a chart for students to choose whether each description is referring to an acid, a base or a neutral solution. A teacher's answer key is provided.
The fill in the blank nature of this handout lends itself well to a teacher guided lesson on acid and bases, or have students research for the answers in their textbook. This handout can also be used as a test review for the acid and bases unit.
