Sample Lab Report Outline

Introduction Paragraph:
·      Identify the topic/science question
·      Give background with science vocabulary
·      Write your hypothesis (if, then, because) where the thesis should go; identify the independent variable, dependent variable, and rationale (reason you have for making your prediction)

In a separate list:
·      Independent Variable
·      Dependent Variable
·      Constants/Control Variables (at least three)
·      Control Group (if required)

Procedure
·      Write in numbered list form
·      Label the IV, DV, and constants
·      Explain how you will record data
·      Use numbers and measurements
·      Be as specific as possible
·      Include at least five steps
·      Explain how you will control (keep separate) all variables

Materials
·      Identify all materials you will use (at least five)
·      Explain how you will use each material

Graph or Chart
·      Record your data from the experiment on a graph or chart
·      Label your graph or chart
·      Identify the IV and the DV

Conclusion Paragraph
·      Restate your hypothesis and say whether it was correct or not
·      Identify a specific strength and a specific limitation
·      Explain how each specific strength or limitation had an influence on your experiment
·      Use numbers and details from your introduction, procedure, and graph/chart as evidence to support your writing
·      Summarize the way you kept your variables isolated (controlled) and how this led to reliable data for your experiment
·      Explain what you will do differently next time
