Becoming Scientists: Observation and Questioning
Resource Types: Kits
Students will explore the nature and process of science. To activate prior knowledge, students define and sort types of questions. Then, using tools such as spring scales, measuring tapes, and magnifying equipment, students begin making scientific observations of the natural world. Finally, students use their observations to develop testable investigative questions.
