This pre-lab preparation worksheet contains both printable and digital versions. When asked to read the lab activity as homework the night before the lab, few if any of the students will do so. I have discovered that my lab activities run much smoother and the students actually benefit from the lab experience if they read and prepare themselves prior to class. This is the purpose of this simple Pre-Lab Worksheet. The questions are designed to make sure that the students read the lab handout prior to class.

Both printable and digital versions of this resource are included. The student handouts can be printed or used in the paperless digital format in your Google Drive, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneDrive, or similar. This resource is perfect for traditional classroom settings, 1:1 schools, or for distance learning.

What will the students be doing?

I require that all of my students read the lab as homework the night before we actually do the lab experiment. Students must complete this worksheet as they read the lab. By answering a few simple questions, students will be well prepared to do the lab experiment.

Students Will:

  • Identify the title of the lab.
  • State the purpose of the lab.
  • List needed materials and equipment.
  • Identify safety precautions.
  • Make predictions.
  • Identify sources of potential error.
  • Determine independent and dependent variables.

The lab always runs much smoother and is much more meaningful to the students when they are well prepared before hand.

This handout can be used with any grade level old enough to complete lab work, and it can be used with any type of science class.
