As the students begin working on their upcoming science experiments we began our science unit on the Scientific Method. The method is a series of steps or process that structures the experiment.
We started by reviewing /learning two Scientific Method songs. The Scientific Method Rap is also a video. The vocabulary is important so these songs will be sung a few times more!
Hypothesis- Our smart guess regarding what will happen in our experiment based on what we already know & observe.
Experiment- A controlled test to find something out
Conclusions - To explain the results of experiment , observations etc. based on experiment.
Do taller children have bigger feet then smaller children?
First we lined up according to height which also included both teachers. We sat down in size order, took off our shoes and shared what we had observed so far.
Once all the shoes were completed each child placed their single shoe on the banner. Everyone stood behind their own shoe. The result surprised many! Several tall people including the teacher were taller than others BUT had smaller shoes!
The children began completing their experiment worksheets for analysis the next time we meet for science.
