Lab Report Cover Sheet


The purpose of a lab report cover sheet is to find out what you have learned about the lab.  During the course of the lab you and your partners will be collecting data and information together.  So it is conceivable that each person in your team will have the same or similar data.  The lab report cover sheet allows me to see your individual ideas and learning that has taken place. 


Additionally, it is very important to be able to convey what was learned in a scientific manner using the written word.  Writing the report cover sheet will prepare you to write lab reports in other science classes. 


All labs must be submitted with a cover sheet, and must include the following:


  • Proper Heading

    • Date lab was started

    • Title of lab

  • Purpose of the lab (stated in your own words)

  • The results of doing the lab (what data was collected)

  • 2 statements describing what you learned from doing the lab

  • 2 questions about this topic that you want to learn more about

  • Cover sheets should be typed, and proper grammar and spelling should be used.
