These quick labs are designed to review over Reporting Category 2. They are easy and fast to do so the students can fill any gaps. The TEKS are listed at the top of each lab and there are higher level thinking questions that go with each lab.
You will need some materials for the quick labs but if you are a hands-on science teacher you will probably have most of these materials available from the school year.
There is an answer key for each page and there is a page of suggested video links for each quick lab.
These Quick Labs go great with my STAAR 10 day review that is in my store. After assessing your students you can use these to go back and reteach concepts.
