Need a ready to go, inquiry based bacteria lab to get your students thinking and interested in bacteria? All you need is this lab, some milk, glass jars (baby food jars work well), and possibly a fridge. Appropriate for grades 4-7, this is a life science lab in which students will use the idea of spoiled/curdled milk to help them determine what are the best growing conditions for bacteria.

painted lightbulb I use Pebeo Vitrea 160 paint for glass. I let the paint dry (24 hours if I've managed my time properly. I've actually rushed this and only let it dry as long as it took to be dry to touch. I have yet to notice any negative effects) and then bake for 40 minutes at 325 degrees Farenheit (160 degrees Celsius).
