A series of demonstrations showing that scientific discovery begins with observations! 4 activities, 42 min. Scientific Method Demonstrations How can you solve the structure of something you cannot see? Effective demonstrations naturally inspire wonder and promote inquiry. 4 activities, 33 min. Scientific Method Inquiry Labs The process of discovery continues with "trial and error" inquiry-based labs as students learn how to design controlled experiments, analyze results, and identify patterns. 3 activities, 31 min. Scientific Method Learning Activities Fun classroom learning activities generate lots of questions and provide opportunities to develop scientific "habits of mind." 4 activities, 30 min.Critical Thinking and Problem Solving Use these puzzles and models to increase your students' critical thinking! 5 activities, 35 min. Inquiry Labs Increase the level of student engagement, improve their understanding of key concepts, and promote critical thinking by adapting your favorite lab activities into open- or guided-inquiry labs. 4 videos. Concepts: Scientific method, inquiry-based learning, experimental design, measurement, graphing skills, physical and chemical properties, chemical reactions, balanced chemical equations, gas laws, molar relationships, atomic and electron structure Video Description Bob Becker Target Labs Set goals for your students using Bob Becker's Target Labs. Activities will engage and encourage your students. 5 activities, 55 min. Jeff Bracken Challenge Labs How can you make students work harder and smarter? Give them a challenge! Challenge labs are guided-inquiry experiments with pre-set goals that students will want to achieve. 4 activities, 57 min.
