The paper towel lab for middle school is a classic science experiment that every teacher should use. Focusing on a product that every student can connect with, makes this an engaging science laboratory that kids can enjoy. In the process, kids naturally learn about variables, controls and key parts of experiments. I have used this lab for 20 years in various forms. This latest version includes upgrades that will help better engage students and increase learning through technology. We have created video tutorials for each of the lab steps, no more explaining how to do something 100 times in class, just tell them to “go watch the video!” Students are provided with a presentation template that they can build out during the lesson to demonstrate their understanding. There's even a bonus project included for extra credit. Click the preview to learn more.
