This high interest activity for grades 5-9 will grasp their attention and allow students to apply the concepts of a controlled experiment following the scientific method.
Students will time different simulated blood viscosities. Don't worry, there is no fake blood to buy just water, corn syrup and food coloring.
Within this lab there is a strong math connection to data analysis skills such as mean, median, mode or range as well as line graphs. Therefore this activity is great for science teachers or math teachers.
