Tchefuncte students will attend science lab one day a week for a 40 minute
class period. The students will receive approximately 32 different lab
activities for the school year.


In Science Lab, the students will work in cooperative groups doing hands-on exploration to construct and reinforce scientific concepts. The students use scientific equipment such as spring scales, graduated cylinders, balances, meter tapes, thermometers, and magnets. Students will use their journal 
to record their work. The activities are directly coordinated with the
science curriculum taught in the classroom.
