This product was recently completely revised with tons of more options for the new school year! This is a student reference sheet on how to write a lab report at the middle school level.
It breaks it down section by section. The conclusions section is also broken down into smaller sections under the principle of RERUNS. Which has the student go back through their lab and address each section. This way they are more prepared for high school science lab report writing and know what should be included in this section.
This project contains 6 versions of How to Write a Lab Report & a write in fillable version.
