Y6 Chemistry with Cabbage

2nd Nov 2021

We began the session by making predictions about different substances and where we had seen them before. This led us onto discussing how chemical reactions occur. First, we used a piece of cabbage to create some cabbage juice (We would be using this for the rest of our experiments). Next, we made predictions as to whether we thought a substance was acid, alkaline or neutral. We then used the cabbage juice and combined the substances to see what colour it changed to. Depending on the colour change, this told us the Ph Level and whether a substance was acid, alkaline or neutral.
