Acid rain is a term used generically to describe any type of acidic moisture, be it rain, snow, or fog. Acid rain can have devastating effects on not only aquatic ecosystems but also terrestrial areas. Acid rain not only affects naturally-occurring surfaces, such as exposed rocky surfaces of mountainous regions, but also human-made surfaces as well. Different stone and metal substances used in the construction of buildings, statues, monuments, etc. may all be affected by acid rain. The rates of erosion and weathering may increase rapidly depending on the degree of acidity in the precipitation. In this activity, students expose many rock materials and metals, both naturally-occurring and common in construction, to an acidic environment and examine the reaction of these materials in contrast to the same materials exposed to “normal” rain (tap water). Kit contains enough materials for 15 groups. Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters are included.
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom and homeschool-based projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
