3 Differentiated Labs

Dependent Student Lab - A complete lab. This level is written with a combination of procedural instructions and inquiry questions. They are moderately student-centered with guided inquiry questions throughout the lab. Suggested for on-level learners.
Modified Student Lab - A complete lab. This level provides the most structured lab experience. The lessons may eliminate parts of the lab and change the questioning to include sentence stems or multiple choice questions. Suggested for learners with modifications.
Independent Student Lab - A complete lab. This level is the most student-centered experience. Suggestions are made for the students to get started, but most of the decisions will be student-centered. The students will be responsible for most aspects of the lab and will have the least guidance. Suggested for advanced learners.

Materials Needed Per Group:

1 set of Cod Cards (printed and cut apart – tell the students not to peek at them until the instructions say so.)
1 cups white dry beans in a container
1 cup of dark beans in a container
1 bowl that can easily hold 3 cups
Red, Blue, and Green markers (If there is more than one of each, the Marking step will go faster.)
1-cup and ¼-cup measuring cups
Modified only: a calculator for the population estimates.

Standards Alignment
