MYP Lab-O-Matic Write-up Template
This write-up template is designed to be used after students have shown proficiency with the mini and full versions of the MYP Lab-O-Matic. The write-up template removes much of the support the other versions of the Lab-O-Matic provide, in an attempt to better prepare students for creating a true lab write-up.
MYP Mini Lab-O-Matic Vocabulary Handout
Designed to be printed front/back on half a sheet of 8.5x11" paper, this mini Lab-O-Matic allows students to take their vocabulary learning and record it for future use. Students can "fill in" working definitions and save the handout for future use.
