Scientific Writing Activity - Great for Common Core Writing Lessons
Can your students write a clear and concise laboratory procedure?
A key component of the scientific method is the recording and publishing of results. In his/her publication, a scientist must give the procedural steps used to perform the experiment. Other scientists will repeat this work to verify the results.
In this simple activity, the student will build a unique and unusual structure. The student will then write instructions for how to build the structure. Students will swap sets of instructions and attempt to build the structures of other students.
Students quickly realize how clearly and precisely instructions must be written.
This activity can be used with students in grades 3 through 12. By changing up the "building materials" that are used the activity is easily adaptable to students of different grade levels and ability levels.
