The "Lab Cycle" is a unique flow chart that guides students through the Scientific Method. This chart can be used with any lab and it keeps students focused and engaged. Students are held accountable while doing lab reports because it is consistent and easy to follow. This chart is a lifelong flexible tool because it can be used as the foundation for any lab. This product works best when accompanied with a lab notebook and the "Scientific Method Lab Cycle Rubric". I've been using the cycle for three years now and it works great. It also acts as a classroom management tool because students know what's expected of them during lab time; start (pre-lab) to finish (conclusion).
If you would like to see real results from using the cycle and
