Measurement in the Laboratory—Activity-Stations Kit

By: The Flinn Staff

Item #: AP7059

Price: $77.00

In Stock.

In the Measurement in the Science Laboratory Activity-Stations Kit, students conduct six lab activities in which length, mass, temperature and concentration are measured. The measurements are then used to calculate volume and density.

Product Details

Help your students develop key measurement skills with this comprehensive lab activity. Students learn to use good laboratory techniques as they conduct six separate lab activities in which length, mass, temperature and concentration are measured and then use these measurements to calculate volume and density. Each lab activity can be performed independently. A great skill-building kit! Includes reproducible student handouts, detailed background information, complete Teacher Notes with sample data and answers to all questions and all necessary chemicals and consumables supplies.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs. 0.01-g balances are needed for mass measurements and available separately.

Performance Expectations

MS-PS1-1: Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
MS-PS1-4: Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
HS-PS1-1: Use the periodic table as a model to predict the relative properties of elements based on the patterns of electrons in the outermost energy level of atoms.
HS-PS1-3: Plan and conduct an investigation to gather evidence to compare the structure of substances at the bulk scale to infer the strength of electrical forces between particles.
HS-PS2-6: Communicate scientific and technical information about why the molecular-level structure is important in the functioning of designed materials.
