Peer review of science laboratory reports? You bet! First, learners work in pairs to review a scientific article. Then they trade lab reports for peer review. The end result is the publication of a classroom scientific journal!
A series of math and science activities feature M&M's® as manipulatives to help kids work through equations. The resource includes exercises on finding averages, percent of compositions, moles in chemical reactions, genotypes and...
It's better to be safe than sorry ... just ask Timmy! Engage learners with a hilarious lab safety review activity. The activity, part of the K20 series, revolves around identifying, describing, and remediating disastrous lab practices.
After an explanatory introduction to sugars and enzyme activity, biochemists discover whether lactase is needed to digest lactose, sucrose, and milk as a whole. High school science lab skills are required for these investigations.
Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics
Take your class up, up, and away with an engaging weather balloon simulation! Individuals get hands-on experience in creating and launching their own airborne labs to study how temperature and pressure affect substances at 100,000 feet.
Scholars learn the differences between RNA and DNA through discussion, virtual labs, worksheets, and video quizzes. They build their knowledge of molecular biology with support from video clips and handouts.

Water is crucial to survival. Scholars gain an appreciation for water by reading about it, learning about its atomic properties, and investigating its properties through six stations in a lab activity.
Can science put an end to the poaching of endangered species? Show your young forensic experts how biotechnology can help save wildlife through an exciting electrophoresis lab. Grouped pupils analyze shark DNA to determine if it came...
Create a model to study a microscopic phenomenon. The seventh of 12 lessons uses an egg (without its shell) to represent a cell membrane. Using different solutions, learners explore the concept of cell diffusion. They monitor...
Mislabeled bottles can cause a dangerous situation! Young chemists design a method for determining the true contents of a solution in a virtual lab activity. Their study of density helps them identify the makeup of the solution.
Your class is bound to be fascinated by this virtual lab! Young biochemists explore molecules that bind to specific sites on the DNA molecule through a skillful simulation. The lesson challenges learners to create a DNA-bound solution...
It's pretty common to determine the dissociation constant for an acid or a base ... but, what about a protein? Challenge your class with a virtual lab designed to further develop their acid-base chemistry skills. Individuals determine...
You'll need to concentrate on the concentration lab to get it done. Given a virtual beaker with a silver chloride solution of unknown concentration, scholars find the silver ion concentration in the solution. Of course, they must show...
There's no diluted learning here! Young chemists conduct a virtual lab exploration to practice their stoichiometry skills. By manipulating simulated solutions, they create a solution of a specific glucose molarity.
Combine a little solid and a little water and the solution is clear! An experimental lesson has individuals make calculations to create a sample solution of a given volume and molarity. They then create the solutions using a virtual lab...
Arsenic in drinking water is a common problem in third world countries. Young chemists create a procedure to calculate the mass percent of arsenic in the soil. The virtual lab allows individuals to experiment with different methods.
Time to test the limits! Young scientists make limiting reagent calculations and test their math using a virtual lab simulation. Using their knowledge of ionic compounds, they determine the limiting reagents and the excess compounds.
More than 70 percent of people and 90 percent of businesses use spreadsheets regularly. While many courses overlook the important skill, the simple water lab focuses on entering spreadsheet data, formatting it, and printing plots based...
