Experiment with volume, converting themetric system.
Text of Learning Exercise:
Topic or Unit of Study:
The Metric System, Volume
Students learn about he metric system through lab activities based on volume.
Students will complete lab stations that contain activities dealing with volume. They will be assessed through their lab packets.
The metric system, experimentation
Students will complete experiments at stations set up around the room. The stations will focus on volume. Students will be given a packet that has instructions to the lab stations that they are to complete. Students can work in teams at the stations. If they are finished with the station they can move on to the next one on their own. This is a students centered activity, so they can work independently. This activity will take two days to complete, as the students will be expected to do a good job on their packets.
Sample Student Products:
2 class periods. 50 Min. per class.
Students will be assessed through the work that they do in their lab packet.
