We make the Alginate Worm Connection Kit  -  When Algy Meets Calcium

Make terrific, colorific wormy gels and introduce chemical changes in elementary grades.

Make a calcium chloride solution, squirt in a little sodium alginate solution and pull up beautiful gels. Add lemon juice or baking soda to the alginate solution and the red cabbage juice indicator will change colors and you can make different colored "worms".
