This curriculum project reviews the current research on laboratory activity formats and their effectiveness. The literature concerning laboratory safety and teacher liability is also reviewed. The revision of Florida state high school science requirements is presented and the curriculum developed corresponds to these revisions. The project includes laboratory activities that correspond to the course student performance standards as designated by the state of Florida for the Physics I course and strives to aid teachers in fulfilling the 72 hour laboratory time requirement to meet eligibility requirements for additional state funding. The criteria for selecting activities and materials are also included in this project. A sample evaluation form is included, as well as a summary of these teacher evaluations of the developed curriculum.
