Chemistry in a Bag: Place 2 parts CaCl2, 1 part NaHCO3 a sealable plasitc bag, then slide in a cup holding 10 mL of 0.1% Phenol Red indicator; Seal the bag;  Mix!!  Make your observations (Color??   Heat?? Gases evolving??)  Use deductive reasoning by doing new experiments to figure out what chemical does what.
