Description:

This is a multidisciplinary introduction to experimental methods. Students are forced to think about ways that they can test a specific quality of their snack, carry out the tests, and collect data. Students who have little experience in scientific methods and use of technology are introduced to the methodologies and use of technology for data analysis and presentation. The exercise also provides a good review of basic skills. This lesson could be used for upper elementary through high school. Students should have some prior knowledge of the methods of measurements. This teaching resource was developed by a K-12 science teacher in the American Physiological Society’s 2006 Frontiers in Physiology Program.
