STATION1: AIR TODAY, OCEAN TOMORROW

1. Fill one cup of water fresh water to the line on the cup.

2. Fill the second cup with ocean water to the line on the cup.

3. Add a few drops of bromothymol blue to both cups until the water turns a light
blue/green color.

4. Tear a strip of pH paper in half and use it to measure the pH of the waters. Record
the pH’s in your data table along with your initial observations on the appearance.
This piece of data should be for time 0 minutes on your data table.

5. Place the drinking straws in the cups of water and begin exhaling softly into the cup
forming bubbles the entire time. CAUTION: Do not ingest any of the water.

6. At one minute intervals, record the pH and appearance of the water samples for a
total of three minutes.

7. Clean up area for the next group of students and answer the reflection questions.

STATION 2: SEA LEVEL CHANGE

1. Fill the land ice cup with rocks or marbles until it is level with the line on the cup
representing initial sea level.

2. Add water until it reaches the line on the cup. Record the initial land ice in
centimeters in your data table.

3. Add THREE piece of ice on top of the rocks.

4. In the other cup, labeled sea ice, add THREE ice cubes then fill up with water until
you reach the line. Record the initial sea ice in centimeters and record in data table.

5. Turn on the heat lamps to melt the ice in the cups.

6. After all ice has melted, record the sea levels for each cup and record in your data
table.

7. Calculate the change in sea levels and record in data table.

8. Clean up area for next rotation and answer reflection questions.

STATION 3: SHELL-SHOCKED

1. Beaker A has a shell in it with NO Vinegar. In the first row of your data table under
station 3, record your initial observations.

2. Beaker B has a shell with vinegar in it. Observe the submerged shell closely and
record your observations in the second row of your data table.

3. The shell in beaker C has been exposed to vinegar for several hours. Observe the
shell and record your observations in the third row of your data table. Use a
magnifying glass if you wish.

4. After filling in your observations in the data table, please read the article titled
“Ocean Acidification Threatens Economics and Marine Life” and answer the
questions.

5. Make sure you clean up for the next rotation.

STATION 4: BUBBLING CHALK

1. Place a piece of chalk into each of the clean dry beakers. Use a paper towel to dry
the inside of the beaker in case it is still wet from the previous group.

2. In the first column of your data table for station 4, describe the appearance of
your chalk in each of the beakers.

3. Decant or pour 50 ml of water into the graduated cylinder.

4. Slowly pour the water into the beaker with the chalk in it. Describe the
appearance of the chalk while pouring water on it. Record in your data table.

5. After slowly pouring all of the water onto the chalk, observe any additional
changes of the chalk and record in your data table.

6. Now, decant 50 ml of vinegar into the other graduated cylinder.

7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 pouring vinegar into the other beaker with the piece of
chalk in it

8. Rinse out all cylinders and beakers. Dry beakers for the next rotation.

STATION 5: THE EFFECTS OF CO2 ON TEMPERATURE

1. Fill both containers with water to about the ½ mark.

2. Point the heated lamp at the containers from a distance that ensures both
containers are heated equally at the same rate. (Keep the amount of radiant
energy hitting both containers constant.)

4. Quickly cover both of the containers!

5. Take an initial reading of the temperatures for both containers at time 0 minutes
and record in your data table.

6. Continue temperature readings every minute for 2 minutes and record into your
data table.
