Station #1: Volume of Water Purpose: To observe that not all lab equipment can be used for measurements. If you want to measure a liquid, graduated cylinders are more useful than glass bottles. Data and Observations: Collect measurements: 1) water volume in bottle 2) volume in graduated cylinder Looks Like ποΈ Feels Like ποΈ β A bottle partially filled β Learning β Measure the water in the bottle β Challenging β A graduated cylinder partially filled β Empowering β Measure the water in the cylinder β Plastic β Wet Sounds Like οΏ½ Data collection: 1. βI observe the water level to be at _____ milli-liters (mL)β 2. βI am not sure, but I guess the water level is at ____β 3. βWhere do I write this down?β Station #2: Volume Displacement Purpose: To measure the volume of an object by watching the water level rise. The change in water volume equals the volume of the object. Data and Observations: Collect measurements: 1) starting volume 2) final volume Looks Like ποΈ Feels Like ποΈ β Start with: cylinder with water β Learning β End with: cylinder with water and a die β Challenging β Empowering β Plastic β Wet Sounds Like οΏ½ Data collection: 4. βI observe the water level to be at _____ milli-liters (mL)β 5. βI am not sure, but I guess the water level is at ____β 6. βWhere do I write this down?β Station #3: Mass and Displacement Purpose: To measure the mass of an object by watching the weight rise. The change in mass on the scale equals the mass of the object. Data and Observations: Collect measurements: 1) starting mass 2) final mass Looks Like ποΈ Feels Like ποΈ β Start with: plastic on scale β Learning β Place weight on scale β Challenging β End with: plastic and weight on scale β Empowering β Metal Sounds Like οΏ½ Data collection: 7. βI observe the mass to be at _____ kilo-grams (kg)β 8. βI am not sure, but I guess the mass is at ____β 9. βWhere do I write this down?β Station #4: Volume of a Solid Purpose: To measure the volume of an object by measuring the sides. Volume of the object (cm3) = length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm) Data and Observations: Collect measurements: 1) length 2) width 3) height Looks Like ποΈ Feels Like ποΈ β Start with: die and a ruler β Learning β Measuring the sides β Challenging β Use the cm not inches β Empowering β Plastic Sounds Like οΏ½ Data collection: 10. βI observe the edge to be _____ centi-meters (cm)β 11. βI am not sure, but I guess the length is ____ (cm)β 12. βWhere do I write this down?β
