Classroom Resources: Acids & Bases
26 – 34 of 34 Classroom Resources
Acid Base Reactions, Indicators | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this demonstration, students will observe a hidden message while understanding simple acid/base chemistry and indicators.
Observations, Density, Mixtures, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Physical Change, Acid Base Reactions, Mixtures | Elementary School
In this lab, students create a mixture of oil, water and food coloring, and then add an Alka-Seltzer tablet, to create a homemade lava lamp. Student will record their observations during each step of the process and answer follow-up questions about the chemical and physical changes that took place.
Solubility, Concentration, Acid Base Reactions, Titrations, Indicators, pH | High School
In this lab, students will use a reaction to investigate temperature and the solubility of carbon dioxide and will use a neutralization reaction and an indicator to verify the amount of carbon dioxide produced at each temperature.
Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Concentration, Acid Base Reactions, Molarity, Balancing Equations, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Chemical Change, Measurements, Titrations, Indicators, Graphing, Equivalence Point, Error Analysis, Error Analysis | High School
In this lab, students study several concepts, including acid-base reactions, limiting reactants, and stoichiometry, by observing the contained reaction of acetic acid (diluted vinegar) with sodium hydrogen carbonate (baking soda) in an unconventional, cost effective titration.
Concentration, Acid Base Reactions, Molarity, Stoichiometry, Limiting Reactant, Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Indicators, pH | High School
In this lab, students experience a limiting reactant and can physically see the difference in amounts of product generated. They also see which reactant is in excess.
Concentration, Acid Base Reactions, Molarity, Measurements, Titrations, Indicators, Strong vs Weak, pH, Equivalence Point | High School
In this lab, students will witness a reaction between an acid and base. One will be strong, and the other may be weak or strong--it's up to them to determine.
Interdisciplinary, History, Acid Base Reactions, Acid & Base Theories, Acid Rain, pH | High School
In this project, students will compare and contrast the properties of acids and bases and define pH.
Observations, Chemical Change, Chemical Change, Reaction Rate, Acid Base Reactions, Limiting Reactant, Chemical Change, Indicators, Le Châtelier's Principle | High School
In this demonstration, students will observe a color change in a milk of magnesia solution as vinegar is added.
Reaction Rate, Reaction Rate, Acid Base Reactions, Chemical Change | Middle School
In this lab, the students will work in cooperative groups to investigate how to make a scented, effervescent bath bomb and explore the chemistry needed to create them. Groups will test a variety of different variables in order to compare the reaction rate of each sample. Students will use the results to determine which variables are optimal for making and using bath bombs.
