Christmas Tree Genetics Lab
Students determine a tree's genotype and phenotype in this lab that reinforces the use of Punnett Squares.

Investigating Ice Lab
Students use various melting agents to see which will melt ice the fastest. Measurement skills, parts of an experiment, and graphing are also reinforced. The download also includes teacher answer key and detailed set-up information.
Treat Measurement Lab
Students go to five different stations to practice measuring length, volume, mass, temperature, and density. This lab is very similar to our popular Measurement Lab from our Introduction to Science unit.
Includes teacher answer key and detailed set-up information.
Christmas/Winter-themed calendar cards
Christmas/Winter-themed word wall cards
The terms used for the word wall cards are the same ones used for the I Have/Who Has cards.
Christmas/Winter-themed I Have/Who Has Cards
I Have/Who Has cards are a fun way to quickly test the students’ vocabulary and can be used daily. Terms in this set review early in the year vocabulary, including measurement tools, parts of experiments, the scientific method, and inference vs. observation.
To use, print, cut, and laminate the cards. Pass out ALL the cards to your students, even if it means some of your students have two cards. Select a student to start the game by reading the “Who Has” (definition) portion of his or her card. The student with the corresponding “I Have” (term) portion responds and reads the “Who Has” on the same card. This continues until all 28 cards have been read and the student who started the game ends it. Timing the classes to see which one is the fastest is an enjoyable way to foster some good-natured competition!
