Celery Lab

How do sugar and salt affect celery's mass, width, and flexibility? Using simple household ingredients, young scientists will perform a controlled experiment to find out. The lab is scaffolded through a instructional activity, but there are no other instructions; you may wish to delete one or both of the graph pages (the format isn't the best) and replace it with a procedure-writing page. There are several dependent variables in the investigation, so within groups, partners could research different variables.

I am a very busy Head of Department and often don't have time to create worksheets and other resources for my classes. Lesson Planet has helped me find many useful and interesting activities to support my students' learning.
