This stand alone ACTIVITY#2 of 6 teaches accuracy and precision. This one involves comparing the use of a graduated cylinder versus an Erlenmeyer flask by measuring colored water in both. This can be used as an exploration, an activity, or a lab experiment as it can be altered.
The presentation consists of 12 slides including:

  • 1 cover slide
  • 1 introduction slide that was included in the original presentation of 6 activities
  • 1 slide detailing NGSS standards covered in the original presentation
  • 1 slide general content on accuracy & precision with visual and examples on how to use a graduated cylinder (reading meniscus at eye level vs. standing up)
  • 1 teacher overview slide
  • 1 lab sheet with materials, questions, procedure
  • 1 slide data table for activity
  • 1 slide - student questions worksheet
  • 1 slide - conclusion option #1 with lines to write conclusion.
  • 1 slide - conclusion option#2 modified with conclusion written - students have to circle the choices that apply to their experience
  • 1 slide - more teacher notes
  • 1 slide - my own conclusion slide that went with the original presentation

Additional materials needed: Erlenmeyer Flasks & Graduated Cylinders per group, 2 different colors of food dye (but this can be tweaked to be done without food coloring as well).

Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties. Examples of materials to be identified could include baking soda and other powders, metals, minerals, and liquids. Examples of properties could include color, hardness, reflectivity, electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, response to magnetic forces, and solubility; density is not intended as an identifiable property. Assessment does not include density or distinguishing mass and weight.
