At the heart of PASCO’s Biology through Inquiry lab manual is a commitment to ensuring student learning through all phases of a lab activity. Questions embedded throughout the activity, sequencing and key term challenges, opportunities to predict outcomes prior to data collection, and post-lab multiple-choice questions all help to make the connection between lectures and labs as seamless as possible.
This guide includes 25 lab activities that can be edited to suit the needs of your students or to better coordinate with your classroom lectures. Downloadable how-to videos are included with the manual, and can be found on our website, as well as YouTube. These videos assist with setting up labs and getting the most from your PASCO sensors and equipment.
These general biology labs have been redesigned to take advantage of wireless sensors. The labs are FREE to download in the PASCO Experiment Library. They include an editable student lab, SPARKvue configuration files, and teacher notes with prep instructions. Each lab gives students critical background information, a structured-inquiry procedure, analysis questions, and inquiry extensions.
