The purpose of this lesson, from Science NetLinks, is to devise a scientific investigation to detect acids and bases in common materials. In this lesson, students prepare a test solution whose color changes when an acid or a base is added; determine whether various household substances are acids or bases, and look for patterns in the results; determine how their test solution compares to commercial acid-base testers; and search for other test solutions.
