For a creative approach to exploring pH levels in everyday items, create your own pH indicator using red cabbage. This is a simple, safe approach to chemistry that can help your students understand the difference in pH balance of items in their everyday lives.
Everyday items become the test solutions for the lab. Try asking your students to hypothesize which solutions they believe to be acidic and which they believe are basic. Compare your hypotheses to your conclusions at the end of this lab.
While this lab is very safe, it is important to always monitor your student during any laboratory activity. Be sure to use lab safety precautions during this and all labs. If you choose to use more toxic chemicals, such as household cleaners, we recommend you wear safety gloves and goggles to prevent injury
