·      Make as many ­qualitative- observations as possible.
·      Ask yourself: What do these add up to mean? (What is its function)

1. Complete the "Now You Try On Your Own" observations station here:

Lab Equipment Inferences 

Instructions: On the other side of this paper, there are labeled pictures of different lab equipment. Continue to make inferences by using the pictures to match the piece of equipment to the definition. You will not use all of them.

Use your observations and prior knowledge!

1) Used to clean out test tubes.       

2) Used to move hot test tubes around     

3) Used to transfer liquids to other containers.
