Product Description
Measurement is an excellent way to teach the scientific method in a back-to-school unit. This science lab activity teaches the difference between independent and dependent variables as students use graduated cylinders to compare the water absorbing abilities of different brands of paper towels. Covers constants and simple experimental design. Directions for two different measurement procedures using graduated cylinders are given (one appropriate for younger children who have not mastered subtraction). Included are a data table, graph paper and grading rubric.

Students enjoy squeezing the water out of the paper towels!

The mini-posters decorated with small pieces of real paper towels look great on a bulletin board and can be combined with results from another activity that compares the strength of paper towels.
