Description

★ Building Blocks Lab ★

The purpose of this lab is for students to write and draw exact procedures for building a structure of building blocks and to follow a partner's instructions to build a structure.

The Lab
The purpose of this lab is for students to write and draw exact procedures for building a structure of building blocks. It is an excellent opportunity for students to communicate with writing informational text and is a fun activity for emphasizing the importance of clear directions and diagrams in the science content. The students can also complete an optional science conclusion for the activity if this is a skill you are currently working in.

Also Included:
I usually place building blocks into the numbered plastic baggies and use this method to level the activity. You can level this activity by placing less blocks into some bags and more into others. This way you already know which bags are easier than others. Cut out the labels below and either onto the outside of the baggies.

Included In This Activity:
♦ 1 page teacher guide
♦ 4 page lab activity
♦ #1-30 colorful baggie labels for materials

Additional Materials Needed(not included):
♦ building blocks
