Independent Lab Experiment

Today in class you decided as a group what you wanted your independent lab experiment to be and you set it up in class.

On Wednesday I would like you to turn in the first part of the lab report that included all the following parts. This should be a typed document with your name on it that you should print out and turn in to me at the start of class on Wednesday.

Independent Lab Experiment

Experimental Question: What is the question that you will be testing?

Research: What was one thing you found out about your topic and what was your source?

The Scientific Method

Don't forget you need to think up an experimental question about the NOVA garden to share with your classmates on Friday.

Also for fun check out these YouTube videos I found when I searched for "The Scientific Method".
