This project measured the effects outdoor labs had on student motivation and achievement. Traditional labs were conducted and compared to field based labs. The data gathered during these labs consisted of observations, pretests and tests, minute papers, interviews, Likert surveys and a teacher journal. The results indicated an increase in student achievement which was greatest at both ends of the academic scale. Student motivation also increased during field based labs.
