Can Your Students Write a Clear and Concise Lab Procedure?



This FREEBIE allows your students to practice writing a set of clear and concise laboratory instructions.

A key component of the scientific method is the recording and publishing of results. In his publication, a scientist must give the procedural steps used to perform his experiment.  Other scientists will repeat his work to verify the results.

In this simple activity, the student will build a unique and unusual structure.  The student will then write instructions for how to build the structure.  Students will swap sets of instructions and attempt to build the structures of other students using the instructions written by the other student.



Enjoy this new free writing activity!

Great freebie! Thanks for posting. I did an activity this year where the kids had to build a structure using legos by following a very poorly-written procedure and then rebuild it using a well-written procedure. As a follow-up students wrote their own directions on the topic of their choice. Your worksheet/template and guiding questions are the perfect addition to my lesson! THANKS!
