Description:

Middle school students will design and construct a mechanism that measures the passage of one minute of time. This lesson should be taught as a review of basic measurement skills and an application of laboratory safety. The students should have prior knowledge of the scientific method. Upon completion of this activity, students will be able to understand the advances and necessity of standardized measurement, and apply reasoning, problem solving, trouble shooting, constructing, and designing a device that indicates when a minute has passed. This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 2006 Frontiers in Physiology Program.
