This is a laboratory activity that covers the proper use of 5 basic pieces of lab equipment: The Celsius thermometer, the graduated cylinder, the quadruple (or triple) beam balance, the metric ruler, and the Bunsen burner. Set up in a lab station-style setting, this activity will teach, review, reinforce, and provide practice on the correct use of these essential pieces of lab equipment. Students will also review data tables, line graphs, bar graphs, and circle graphs.

Topics covered by this lab:

  • The Celsius Thermometer
  • The Graduated Cylinder
  • The Triple or Quadruple Beam Balance
  • The Metric Ruler / Meter Stick
  • The Bunsen Burner
  • Tabling, Graphing and Analyzing Data
  • Making a Line Graph
  • Making a Bar Graph
  • Making a Circle Graph

This lab can be used with any type of science class that does lab work and with students in grades 8 through 12. I have found that the students in my classes have very different skill levels. I use this lab to ensure that all students are quickly familiarized with my lab and learn (or review) how to use basic pieces of lab equipment. Students will work with this equipment and answer basic questions. Students will construct a data table, a line graph, a bar graph, and a circle graph.

Your download will include:

  • Two versions of the lab.
  • Version 1 is a paper-saving version. Students will complete their work on their own notebook paper.
  • Version 2 provides spaces for students to complete their work on the lab handouts.
  • Teacher Guide contains tips and suggestions for implementation of the activity as well as a complete teacher answer key.
