I was recently saw some students in a geography class at my sons middle school carrying gallons of water around the bus ramp to get a sense of what the children in Haiti had to go through on a daily basis. I then observed math students using a yard stick and string to estimate and compare the height of two trees. Lab work is not just for Science anymore! Every subject can take part in hands-on learning activities that get kids out of their desks and into real-life applications of curriculum. Share with us some of your great “lab” experiences.
