Imagine a teacher holding a glass jar above a burning candle. The burning candle is sitting on top of 2 metal rods in a shallow glass pan of clear liquid. The liquid covers the metal rods. The teacher holds the glass jar above the candle while asking students to draw near to make careful observations. Students take some time to settle before the teacher explains that she is about to lower the open jar over the candle placing it on the metal rods so that the mouth of the jar is below the surface of the liquid but rests on top of the metal rods. A space will remain between the bottom of the pan and the lip of the jar. She may also invite students to offer their predictions. The teacher holds the jar above the candle throughout this as student’s offer explanations and predictions.labLab Report Template
