Note this product was updated to include a Pepper Water Surface Tension Experiment and lab response sheets for younger students. These sheets provide a place to draw the responses. Each lab response sheet was updated to be used as an interactive notebook page. If pages are too large for your notebook, simply fold in half and glue one half into notebook after the response is recorded. A word bank for responding to the hypothesis and conclusion portion of the lab sheets was added to each experiment. This addition increases the differentiation of the product. These pages are not included in the preview file.
Note: 3 experiments include extension/thinking questions.
