Investigating Science Safely *Teacher Notes: Unit one vocabulary has a large range of words. Not all words will be introduced within unit one. The words need to be introduce throughout the year as needed.
Theory a general belief or idea based on a set of facts or observations
Claim a statement that can be proven or disproven by an experiment, test, or investigation
Inquiry discovery; investigating to find an explanation to a scientific question based on evidence
Testable Question a testable question can be easily tested and answered through evidence of measurable change in an investigation
Investigation Investigate the process of searching for the answer to a question through observation, data, and concluding based on evidence
Experiment a process used to make a discovery, test a hypothesis, or demonstrate a known scientific fact
Scientific Method the process scientists use to study and learn about the world around them; asking questions and finding answers
Procedure a particular way of doing something; a series of steps in an experiment or investigation
Process a series of things that happen which achieves some result
Sequence the order in which something happens or is done
Model a small representation of an object or occurrence used to study the real life object/occurrence
Hypothesis Hypothesize an answer to the question based on prior knowledge; will be tested through the experiment or investigation If we increase the temperature of a cup of water, then the amount of sugar that can dissolve will increase too.
Prediction Predict, Predictable Statement of what will happen before it actually happens; sometimes based on prior knowledge
Variable Vary the factor in an investigation or experiment that can change or be changed; the thing being tested WaterNo Water
Factor any thing or certain condition in an investigation or situation
Significant a factor that is important or makes a difference in the results Water is a significant factor in plant growth.
Observe Observation to closely look at the physical properties of something by using the 5 senses; describe how something looks, feels, smells, tastes, measure it, look for changes, compare
Interact Interaction to act a certain way towards something; a relationship; causing some effect or change to the other thing
Measure Measurement to find out the length, mass, volume, weight of an object by using tools such as a ruler, balance, graduated cylinder, or scale
Accurate Accurately a statement, measurement or result that is exact, correct in details, very close to being perfect
Inaccurate not correct or accurate, an error may have been made
Support giving evidence that, or reasons why something could be true or is the best choice; supporting a hypothesis
Reasonable if something, a statement, hypothesis, or conclusion makes sense or not
Evidence facts, observations, or information that prove something could be true
