Instructional Ideas

  • Create a cross-curricular project with a health class in a unit about the digestive system
  • Have learners analyze advertisements of various antacid tablets and compare the claims to their experimental findings
  • Assign different brands of antacids to various groups in the classroom to compare results
Classroom Considerations

  • Hydrochloric acid is corrosive, so take special care in handling
  • Sodium hydroxide is caustic, so avoid direct contact with skin
  • Always add acid to water so splattering is less likely to occur
  • Ensure groups dissolve substances carefully, due to heat generation of certain materials

 

 

Pros

  • Experiment is divided into two parts to allow for variances if needed
  • Application of this experiment will engage learners of multiple learning styles
