This flip chart is designed to go along with my more formal Lab Report Template (see other listing) as an easy reference or reminder guide. However, it is still useful as a reference tool for any scientific lab report. The laminated flip book has six different tabs corresponding to elements in the lab report: General Formatting, Purpose/Hypothesis, Materials, Procedure, Data, Conclusion. On each tab there is a checklist of items that students need to ensure they include and do correctly.
I use these little spiral bound wonders in my classroom by hanging them from a 3M Command hook attached to the side of the monitor. As kids are typing their lab reports, they have easy access to a self-monitoring tool to help them do their very best. As always, I highly recommend laminating these for durability. It also allows students who need to physically check off their items to monitor their progress the ability to do that with a wet erase marker (vis-a-vis) without damaging the book. Using these has saved a lot of time and energy in re-writes as the first copies are much more complete and carefully done.
