This week we took our first lab practical. Its a test, but not really a normal test. Read student thoughts to find out more about what it is like to take a lab practical in science class.
The lab practical was definitely a different kind of test. I think while it was different than a normal test in the way it was more hands-on, I think the most beneficial part was having a partner. It's definitely more hands-on and engaging and requires deeper thinking. You collaborate with a partner which makes things more efficient and helpful towards choosing an answer. The lab practical was testing our skills on basic science skills such as measurement and using a microscope. We used lab equipment like beakers, graduated cylinders, and forceps and calculated temperature, pH, density, mass, volume, and identified different parts of a CER conclusion amongst other tasks."
