Labs

We will complete at least one laboratory activity each week. Lab activities are intended to deepen and extend a student's understanding of a concept. Labs do not exist as a separate entity; rather, they are strongly tied to student understanding of scientific concepts. Sample labs are included here.

Coffee Filter Parachutes -- Students will understand the relationship between independent and dependent variables.

Physical and Chemical Changes -- Students will compare and contrast the changes that atoms undergo.

Crystal Gardens -- Students will observe the process and organization of crystal precipitation.
