Lesson What are acid & base

Period(s) Follow the science lab schedule

Duration
45 MINUTES

WEEKLY FOCUS

During this week, students will study the lesson What are acids & bases? In this lesson, students will adapt their minds to apply the scientific method in everyday life in line with the schools mission and vision. Students will identify and study the steps of scientific methods through an experiment about how to identify acids & bases: Observe - infer - plan - conduct - predict conclude. As an independent learner, students themselves will conduct an experiment using different objects in order to differentiate acids & bases.

2.The teacher will examine the students prior knowledge by asking questions about how they can conduct an experiment.

Students should be able to mention the main steps that can help them to conduct an experiment.

1. What will happen if you did not follow the steps of the scientific method in a correct order?

Ask these questions 1. What is the most important step in a scientific method?

Student will assess themselves. Students will help other groups to understand the steps of the scientific method.

2.

What will happen if you cannot form a hypothesis?

2. What will happen if you add an acid to a base?

Modeling (Demonstratin g the KnowHow to Students)

25 min

The teacher will ask the students to apply their knowledge and differentiate the acids & bases using different indicators. (group work)

Each group will demonstrate the steps of the scientific method. Each group will use chemical indicator (Litmus paper or phenolphthalein ) then prepare a natural indicator(cabbage solution) to be used for the differentiation.

3.

How do you prepare a natural indicator?

Students will create their own experiment using the steps of the scientific method to identify the acidic and basic types of food.

Assessment

5 min

The teacher will ask the students to evaluate themselves.

Students will complete the selfassessment paper

Students should compare and contrast their results with other groups.

Each group will assess the results and conclusion for the next group
