In this activity, students create an acid-base indicator using red cabbage extract. Students then use this indicator to create a scale using liquids of known acidity. Finally, students use this scale to identify the acidity of unknown liquids.
Students will examine and sketch various trace fossils from an unknown creature and then construct an image of the creature that they believe produced these fossils.
In this activity, students will take on the role of organisms in various environments as they discover the concept of interdependence in ecosystems. They will analyze their relationship with other living things and describe their interdependence.
Students will learn about the parts of an insect and their function and then will design and build their ultimate insect.
In this activity, students will use paper chromatography to separate the colors in the dyes used to color candies. (Please note: some candies are processed in factories with peanuts, so colored markers may be used as an alternative if you have students with peanut allergies)
