Next week is the lab assessment, where students will work with a partner during the experiment and work individually for the CER. The question to be answered is what is the evidence of a chemical change? They will be given an experiment to do and they will be observed and assessed on following directions, measurement, lab techniques, graphing, communication of chemical changes, and using safety practices. Students are reminded to use the third person point of view when writing lab reports. Some of them are still using “I” in their sentences.
