Bouncy Ball Scientific Method Lab | Teaching Real Science This lab is a fun way to teach or review the scientific method. Students compete to make the highest bouncing bouncy ball while staying under budget and finishing in time.
Science Skills Lab: Student Designed Lab in Applying Scientific Method. I am trying to make my labs more inquiry driven. This is no easy task!! Due to overloaded classes, time constraints and nonexistent budgets, few science teachers can take a class to the lab and turn them lose to be scientists. Everyone can do this lab!
This great activity has students using an online ecological footprint generator to help them analyze how their lifestyle choices have an implact on their ecological footprint. In this activity they analyze their own footprint, the footprint of the most sustainable human and the footprint of the least sustainable human. This activity leads to a really rich discussion of ecological issues. Since this is a computer lab activity, it also makes for a great sub plan.
