Acids & Bases  
A collection of activities that explore basic concepts dealing with acids and bases. They are written for the 4-6th grade level.
Acids / Bases
Universal Indicator Rainbow  
This hands-on activity, which is part of the ACS-Science for Kids collection, explores a simple acid/base indicator. Students use household solutions of acid and base to change the color of the indicator.
Acids / Bases
A Gas Sudsation  
In this investigation, students add some soap solution to an empty bottle. They add some baking soda and vinegar. A chemical reaction between the vinegar and the baking soda produces carbon dioxide gas. The interaction between the gas and the detergent creates bubbles. These bubbles have more staying power than the bubbles created by just vinegar and baking soda. With the right amount of each ingredient, students should be able to control the reaction and get the amount of bubbling they are looking for.

Acid Rain  
Most plants do not grow well in an acidic environment. Their leaves tend to yellow and curl, and their growth slows. In this activity, students try growing radish seeds in normal and acidic conditions.

It's a Natural  
In this activity students learn about the natural dyes that cause the color in many foods. Some of these dyes are acid-base indicators, that is, they change color depending on how acidic or basic a solution is placed on them.
