Product Description
NGSS Claim and Reasoning lab where students design and culture bacteria found on their phone. This is an open ended inquiry lab. Students are given a list of materials and asked to come up with their own procedures to support a claim.

This lab goes with a unit over Bacteria and Viruses. I use this lab as a replacement for the recipe lab of growing bacteria. Since students are designing a test, and using their own property, it makes the learning all that more relevant!

I use this lab in my 9-10 grade Biology but it could easily be adapted for earlier or higher grade levels

I use my NGSS Claim and Reasoning Write Like A Scientist format to write the conclusion statements at the end of the lab. You can find that resource in my store!
