PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this lab, students will be practicing the scientific method while experimenting with reaction time. This very simple lab is easy to follow and requires minimal materials. The lab is set up so students can choose their own independent variable to test. Students will be dropping a ruler from above their hand to see how long it takes for them to catch it. They will measure reaction time with the number of centimeters the ruler falls past their index finger before they stop it. The different variables, procedure, and anything directionally in the lab can easily be changed by using the editable link that is provided to my original Google Slides.

The lab document includes:
-Background information
-Purpose question
-Identifying variables
-Writing a hypothesis
-Materials list (participants, rulers, pencils)
-Identifying groups
-Procedure
-Data table
-Two graphs (bar graph and multiple line graph)
-Making inferences
-Drawing a conclusion
