Below is all the elements included with this download:

Bat Genetics Lab
Students determine a bat's genotype and phenotype in this lab that reinforces the use of Punnett Squares.
Includes teacher answer key.

Density Potions Lab
Students create a "potion," measuring densities throughout the lab.
Includes teacher answer key and detailed set-up information.

Slime Lab
Students create, manipulate, and compare two common "slimes" created from normal household materials. They also measure volumes, masses, and calculate densities.
Includes teacher answer key and detailed set-up information.

Spooky Potions: Fun with Acids and Bases Lab
Students use a natural pH indicator (made from red cabbage) to test mystery spooky substances.
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.

Halloween-themed Task Cards
One set of twenty-eight task cards are included to be set up as stations or centers where the students move through in order to reinforce concepts. They are also great to provide “early finishers” with extra reinforcement. The task cards review early-in-the year topics: measurement, conversion, observation vs. inferences, parts of an experiment, and reading graphs. Includes student answer sheet and answer key for teachers.

Halloween-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!

Halloween-themed calendar cards

Halloween-themed word wall cards
The terms used for the word wall cards are the same ones used for the I Have/Who Has cards.
