Students will learn about acids and bases, identify the pH of solutions, and learn about how we interact with acids and bases every day. What happens when you combine an acid and a base in a chemical reaction? Students will learn that ions are what determine whether a substance is an acid or a base. Students will also learn about the neutralization reaction and learn what happens when an acid and base are combined.

Teachers Love This Unit!❤️❤️❤️

Sarah ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Extremely satisfied

This is such a fun lab and I loved the reading passages that provided scientific explanations for what they are seeing. Great overall unit and easy to use.

Students will love these colorful labs!  The format allows you to choose the liquids to test that you have available. 

 Suggested Liquids to Test:

  • White vinegar
  • Bottled water
  • Laundry detergent or dish soap
  • Lemon juice
  • Alkaline water
  • Soda
  • Hand sanitizer

Connections to everyday life are included. How does acid rain affect stone buildings and ponds? Why does putting baking soda on a bee sting relieve pain?

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred. Examples of reactions could include burning sugar or steel wool, fat reacting with sodium hydroxide, and mixing zinc with hydrogen chloride. Assessment is limited to analysis of the following properties: density, melting point, boiling point, solubility, flammability, and odor.
