Thailand Experience Thus Far

Creating Scientists

Each of my students are required to keep a lab book in which they write all their observations, data, create graphs, do calculations, and write their formal write ups. I will add more examples of student work as the year goes on.

Students Hard at Work Doing Labs

Earth Science: My two Earth science classes have been hard at working learning about the scientific method, and how to write lab reports. They are very excited to learn. I look forward to having them conduct more investigations in the future.

Biology: My Biology class has been studying organic molecules. In the pictured lab they are testing different foods for complex carbohydrates, simple sugars, lipids, and proteins. They will be returning to the lab next week to continue their investigation on osmosis and diffusion as we continue to talk about cells.
