Properties of Acids & Bases Lesson Plan

1. Properties of Acids & Bases Lesson Plan

Some of the most crucial reactions that occur in the biological and chemical world happen between acids and bases. This lesson plan helps your students understand what makes an acid an acid and what makes a base a base.

Acids and Bases

2. Acids and Bases

Have you ever wondered how we measure the acidity of liquids? Check out this lesson to see how acids and bases are measured on a pH scale and how they relate to neutral solutions, such as water.

pH Scale Lesson Plan

3. pH Scale Lesson Plan

Learning about acids and bases can be fun, hands-on and can give students insight into everyday items. This lesson uses labs to teach students about the pH scale and buffers. Math skills are also practiced as students learn to calculate pH and pOH.

The pH Scale, Solutions & Buffers

4. The pH Scale, Solutions & Buffers

What do lemons, drain cleaner and blood have in common? They are either acids or bases. This lesson will explore acids and bases, giving examples and definitions. It will also explain how to calculate the pH and the pOH, and will define buffers.

pH Scale Games & Activities

5. pH Scale Games & Activities

Getting ready for your unit on acids and bases? These interactive, hands-on activities and games will help bring the pH scale to life for your middle or high school students.

Titration Lesson Plan

6. Titration Lesson Plan

Use this lesson plan to teach your students about titrations of acids and bases. Students will watch a video lesson that defines and explains titrations and shows how to determine pH during titration. Hands-on activities and a quiz help students understand content.

Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

7. Titration of a Strong Acid or a Strong Base

Discover what titration is and how to calculate the concentration of an acid or base that has been titrated to equivalence. Learn the meaning of titrant, standard solution and equivalence point. Study titration curves and learn how to determine pH during any point of a titration between a strong acid and strong base.
