Product Details

Examine the properties of acids and bases with this complete introduction through seven different experiments.
  • Test acids and bases with litmus paper and phenolphthalein indicator.
  • Examine how pH is related to the strength of an acid or base.
  • Observe the reaction of carbonates and compare the reactivity of different metals with acids.
  • Test the pH of various household products.

Teacher notes and reproducible student handouts include easy-to-follow lab instructions, sample data, answers to questions and in-depth background information. All chemicals and specialized equipment are provided.


Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs. Reusable, 24-well reaction plates are recommended and available separately.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-1. Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
HS-PS1-1. Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-3. Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
HS-PS1-7. Use mathematical representations to support the claim that atoms, and therefore mass, are conserved during a chemical reaction.
