New Lab Journal will be posted for 2008-2009.  Students will have a 70 page spiral notebook that does not leave the classroom.  I bought these notebooks at Target for 10 cents each.

Each lab will include any resources that I use such as power point and smart board files.  Most activities will be posted as pdf files.

Some links/lessons may be outdated, for the most current activities and links, please visit my notebook page.

I pre-cut, using a paper cutter, the lab sheets before they paste it into their lab journals.  Saves time and no clean up needed.
