Throughout the lab I learned a lot about elephants that I didn't preciously know. Comment: Hi Shelbi, The purpose of the lab this week was to explore the scientific method. Elephants were used as the example. Part 7 of 7 - Lab Upload 8.0 Points Question 31 of 31 8.0 Points Please upload your completed Lab Packet for this week. Make sure your name is on the top in ..
