Thinking Like A Scientist

Pages

This week in Science 6, students put on their figurative lab coats to investigate scientific inquiry, or the act of asking a question.  Specifically, “how many jumbo paperclips fit in a full cup of water without it overflowing?”  (Hint:  it’s WAY more than you think.)  After creating, conducting, and observing the experiment in lab groups, students discovered that quality scientific investigation requires some key components, such as constants, a control, a hypothesis, and independent & dependent variables.  Tomorrow, students will step back into the “lab” to conclude trial #2, analyze their data, and report their results.
