This is an Algebra 1 lab that I have created called the "Raven and the Jug Lab". It is based on the story of the Raven and the Jug (http://www.taleswithmorals.com/aesop-fable-the-crow-and-the-pitcher.htm)
Students fill a glass jar halfway with water, measure the height, add marbles, measure again, and repeat the process by adding the same number of marbles each time. They stop when their water jar is almost full. The data ends up being roughly linear. Students then write up a lab report about their data.
Also included with this product is a "help file" for students who are absent or for students who don't understand how to answer the questions.
