Are you tired of thinking through labs for your students? Wouldn't you like to see the excitement that comes form them thinking through the concepts themselves?
This lab report format has transformed my labs!!! I used to make everything for each lab and think through the processes for my students...
Now I simply present my students with a problem and watch them as they follow the steps in this report each time to reveal their own conclusions.
This lab report will cover steps like:
* Forming a hypothesis
* Deciding on Materials and Procedures
* Collecting Data
* Recognizing Independent and Dependent Variables
* Choosing a graph to display your results
* Drawing Conclusions
* Creating Follow up Questions
* Comparing and Contrasting concepts
You can even use this same guideline as a guideline for video lab reports... I just had my students use this format for comparing reaction rates with hot vs cold water and alka seltzer... The videos were amazing and the information they gave me showed they really understood what they were learning and why.
This lab report is easily converted for many different lab situations and can be changed to fit your needs... Give it a try you wont be sorry :)
