Instructional Ideas

  • Give this concise handout to your science fair participants as a guide
Pros

  • Complete, yet concise instructions
  • Laid out in clearly organized steps
  • Useful for helping upper-elementary learners reach Next Generation Science Standards objectives
Cons

  • Unfortunately this is in pdf format, so you cannot edit it; consider using it as a model for designing your own lab report guide sheet
  • Rather than Title for the first step, you may prefer to call it Question or Problem
  • Minor formatting issues such as inconsistency with use of capital letters and punctuation, and the line for student's name for the second page actually on the bottom of the first
