Target learning: create and analysis data to answer a moon crater question
Students will complete an investigation about what makes a large crater on the moon. This lab teaches the students about using one variable and using data to come up with a conclusion. This lesson could be taught along with a space and moon unit.
Students use will use math and graphing skills
This lab is not about answering the question correctly. It’s more about completing an experiment with valid data and analyzing the numbers. The students are learning how to graph and discuss their findings can coming up with a conclusion.
Hint for teachers: Teach students to not round their measurements. Try to get perfect measurements. You can supply them with a tooth pick to measure the size of the craters. I would also supply the students with a calculator.
