This inquiry lab has been created as a student design lab. Students will design a lab to test how temperature affects the distance ketchup will travel. Bonus - fast food restaurants willingly donate ketchup to science teachers and schools!
This lab includes a grading rubric and the racing boards.
This lab was designed as part of my Introduction to Scientific Process Power Point / Unit. The complete unit includes:
Scientific Process Power Point (38 slides)
Scientific Process Student Packet (fill in sections, apply it and practice it sections, note sections, aligned with PP)
Scientific Process Teacher Packet (teacher directions on how to introduce each step to the process, aligned with the power point, word for word what to say to students)
Scientific Process Design Poster (8" x 11") (student friendly design ready to print for each student or enlarge for classroom poster, use as classroom reference)
Scientific Process Terms/Steps (enlarge, cut out, manipulate, paste into student packet as you uncover/discover in lesson)
Lab: Tomato Race (culminating lab students design upon completion of lesson)
Variables Poster (explains independent vs. dependent variables)
