This product includes two different versions of an evaporation lab. One version can be done as an inquiry-based activity, where students design their own experiment for one factor that affects evaporation, and then share results. The other version can be done as a station lab, and is more structured. This is a great way to reinforce and practice experimental design and writing a lab report.
I use this resource when teaching about climate, water cycle, or weather. The version that I use depends upon the particular group of students that year, their behavior, and what skills I want to target,
sponges, cardboard, water, stopwatches, lamp, fan, beaker, graduated cylinder, hot plate, ice, humidifier or a way to create a more humid environment (box with a bowl of hot water?). Other materials can be substituted, or use for the inquiry-based version.
After completing this activity, students will understand both scientific relationships, and the factors that affect evaporation.
