The black box lab is a classic way to develop inquiry and indirect observations in science.
While there are commercial labs you can buy, you can build your own for free! You can use USPS small flat rate boxes (which are delivered for free to the school), shoeboxes or the tissue boxes you have plenty of during flu season.
You can have after-school students make the boxes as well, saving you time.
If you don't want to make your own sets, I can build them as well! Contact me for a price rate.
