Product Details

How much bacteria grows in refrigerated milk? What happens if milk stands out for a day or even for a few hours? Students test refrigerated milk, boiled milk and room-temperature milk to determine and compare their relative bacterial conditions. Students use the resazurin color reaction to demonstrate the relative amounts of bacteria in the various milk samples. Kit materials include the test tubes, powdered milk and the resazurin test solution.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Super Value Kit is complete for five classes of 30 students working in pairs.

Performance Expectations

MS-LS2-3: Develop a model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
MS-LS1-7: Develop a model to describe how food is rearranged through chemical reactions forming new molecules that support growth and/or release energy as this matter moves through an organism
HS-LS1-7: Use a model to illustrate that cellular respiration is a chemical process whereby the bonds of food molecules and oxygen molecules are broken and the bonds in new compounds are formed, resulting in a net transfer of energy.
HS-LS2-4: Use mathematical representations to support claims for the cycling of matter and flow of energy among organisms in an ecosystem.
HS-PS1-5: Apply scientific principles and evidence to provide an explanation about the effects of changing the temperature or concentration of the reacting particles on the rate at which a reaction occurs.
