"Workin' on a Mystery, Goin' Wherever it Leads" MTBoSBlaugust-Testing for Life (Day 17)
For the past several years, I have had students work on a lab that I modified from MyScienceBox. It is about the organic molecules that make up all living things. On a site called Serendip Studio, there is a lab called "Who Took Jerell's iPod?". This lab has a similar goal to show that living things are made of organic molecules, but it is posed with more of a real-life purpose to this lab. The one from Serendip Studio is written more for the high school level, so I am making changes to make it more appropriate for 7th grade. I have an introduction completed and I've started to work on the testing procedures. I am looking forward to trying this out this year.
