Scientific Method Application
Finally, this product includes a penny lab where students will apply the vocabulary and concepts related to the scientific method. During the lab, students conduct three experiments. First they conduct an uncontrolled experiment to see how the range in data is larger without constants. Then, they conduct the same experiment by controlling all of the variables. Finally, they change one variable (soap) and using the same constants, conduct the test again.
An assessment is also included:
