This CAP is titled the âLiving Environment Lab Manualâ which is designed to be incorporated into the Living Environment classrooms, for mostly grades 9 and 10. The goal of this cap is to provide Living Environment teachers with activities and resources that help them reinforce the concepts taught in this course. The labs also enable students to meet the NYS lab time requirement of 1200 minutes. The Labs developed are fun for the students, connect to the curriculum and are modified to meet the needs of our diverse student population. We incorporated a variety of lessons that coincide with the different units covered throughout the year. As successive CAPS are completed new labs that we find helpful will be added to the appropriate units in the lab manual. Internet links and activities have been added that coincide with the curriculum.
