These are fast labs that focus on observation, classification, and identification of parts of living things.
Included in this pack are my labs for:
Identifying parts of Flowers, Cells, Insects & Arachnids, and Leaves.
The first page of each lab explains some of the major traits and characteristics to search for. The second page has places to sketch and answer questions about three different samples. The insects lab also has 7 pages of clipart of bugs to help in case you can't readily find bugs. A second copy of the observations page could be sent home with them if you have them do the first one in teams of 2-4 students.
Great KAGAN exercise in science!
