Title: Determining pH
Description: This lesson provides both hands-on and technology-based activities to reinforce measurement of pH. The characteristics of acids and bases are reviewed. Students evaluate pH through the use of indicators in the lab. An enhancement opportunity is provided by using an interactive website. This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.
Subject: Science (5), or Technology Education (3 - 5)
Title: Mystery Powder Investigation
Description: During this lesson, students will work individually to identify a mystery powder. Students will have the opportunity to test known powders with different substances and record observations. Students will develop a plan that can be used to identify the mystery powder (which can be one powder or a mixture of 2 or 3 powders). Students will enjoy exploring the mystery powder to determine what it contains.
