This lab is great to refresh your students on using various metric measurement tools. Get your students up and moving with lab stations at the beginning of the year, as an enrichment activity to supplement classwork or as an assessment to close out a unit! The lab has 6 stations that students can rotate through. The lab report can be printed full size, or as a booklet for use in an Interactive Science Notebook.
You will need:
1 Triple Beam Balance
1 Electronic Gram Scale
1 Graduated Cylinder (marked with 5 mL increments)
1 Meter Stick
1 String (the length is not important, but I give my students a 2.5 m long piece.)
1 unsharpened #2 wooden pencil
1 ruler marked with centimeters
Students will be analyzing equipment to measure materials in grams, milliliters, centimeters, meters and degrees Celcius.
