When I first began teaching the school where I taught had a no science supplies – I take that back. There was a box of unlabeled rocks and 10 beakers. That was it. I was told that as a science teacher it was expected that I do labs with my students. Oh, and by the way, I was told, there is no science budget. If you are in the same or similar situation, here are 6 labs with worksheets that I developed during my time at the school. All of these labs will cost you less than $20 apiece.
These labs include physical science labs and and a reverse engineering lab that includes technical writing and is a STEM activity.
