Product Details

The ability to make accurate measurements has many applications and is an essential skill for every science laboratory. In this activity-stations lab, students practice measuring mass, length, volume, temperature and time. Five easy-to-set up activity stations allow groups of students to work independently as they rotate from one station to the next. Includes detailed instructions with reproducible student handouts and valuable Teacher Notes.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Standard laboratory equipment, such as balances, beakers and thermometers, are required and available separately.

Performance Expectations

MS-ESS3-3: Apply scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment.
HS-LS2-3: Construct and revise an explanation based on evidence for the cycling of matter and flow of energy in aerobic and anaerobic conditions.
HS-LS2-6: Evaluate claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem.
MS-LS2-4: Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations.
MS-LS2-1: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
