    • Standards

    Give your students hands-on practice with experimental design, isolating variables, forming hypotheses, collecting data, and making claims supported with evidence. While a science class could teach speed and acceleration with these, a STEM class could also enjoy them without needing the explicit science instruction

    These two engaging labs bundled together are great any time but are especially good for the beginning of the year or the start of a new semester because they don't require a lot of equipment - great for those first few weeks back to school when things are so very hectic. All you need for the labs is meter sticks, paper clips, and paper, scissors, and some sort of timing device - I have my students use their mobile phones :)

    You could also use either of these labs (or both!) when teaching average speed and acceleration due to gravity.

    The reaction time lab is guaranteed to engage your students - they love to compete and improve their reaction time! The concepts of the lab is simple enough that students can easily concentrate on the experimental design and data collection/interpretation. In addition, the powerpoint encourages academic discourse, collaboration, predictions, and justification of answers.

    The other product, The Effect of Size on Falling Speed, is set up to not require any understanding of speed but instead, to concentrate on the effects of manipulating a variable. The pdf contains both a scaffolded version and a more open-ended version of the lab sheets. It is a fun activity that kids enjoy while getting practice isolating variables, understanding what conditions need to be kept constant, deciding on independent and dependent variables, and creating a full-fledged lab report.

    I have also included four different logic puzzles with this product - some easier, some more challenging for your early finishers. Your students will enjoy the challenge of the logic puzzle and you will love how the puzzles strengthen their critical thinking skills!

    As a bonus, I have also included my Scientific Method, Experimental Design, Variables, Controls, Constants powerpoint - yours free when purchasing this bundle; it sells for $2.29 here on TpT.

    Both of the products in this bundle are included in my Middle School Science Mega Bundle - which includes my popular scientific method bundle, metric system unit, task cards, and jeopardy games. It's everything a time-strapped middle school (grades 6 - 9) science teacher needs to start the year.

    In addition to this great bundle, I have lots of great science products for sale here on TpT. Here are a few:

    Chemical Bonding Go Fish

    Scientific Method Assessments and Worksheets

    Science Logic Puzzle Bundle: Measurements, Motion, Force, Atomic Structure

    to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
    NGSSMS-ETS1-3
    Analyze data from tests to determine similarities and differences among several design solutions to identify the best characteristics of each that can be combined into a new solution to better meet the criteria for success.
    NGSSHS-PS2-1
    Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration. Assessment is limited to one-dimensional motion and to macroscopic objects moving at non-relativistic speeds. Examples of data could include tables or graphs of position or velocity as a function of time for objects subject to a net unbalanced force, such as a falling object, an object sliding down a ramp, or a moving object being pulled by a constant force.
