Science Saturday {with a FREEBIE} ~ Scientific Method Coin Lab

As you read this, I am blissfully enjoying a weekend away with my husband {it's OK to be a tad jealous}!

Science Saturday for this week is from way back at the beginning of the school year when I teach Scientific Method to my 7th graders.  After we've discussed it, I complete a couple of quick labs with them, that also happen to be pretty fun, where they have to apply the Scientific Method just like a real scientist would in a real laboratory.

This is one of their favorite labs we do!

It's called Scientific Method Coin Lab.  There are lots of versions out there and I have no idea who to give the original credit to, but this is one I created for my students.

Here are some pictures of my students having a great time in science class doing hands-on, cooperative learning...and isn't that what it's all about! :)

I tried to get a good shot of the surface tension just as it was breaking, but that proved rather difficult to do!

This will a little scary to try with the water being so all over the room, but they did a great job and worked very carefully!  These little bathroom cups were a perfect size to use.

So, if you'd like to give this fun, quick lab a shot, you can download the instructions and lab sheet for FREE at my Making It Teacher TPT Store!

Enjoy :)
