Science Starters Week 4 ILO 1 Use Science Process and Thinking Skills Observe objects, events and patterns and record both qualitative and quantitative information.

Record Qualitative and Quantitative Information Students are investigating a population of ducks at a pond. They write down their observations. 5 ducks total 2 ducks are all brown in color 3 ducks have brown bodies, a white stripe around their necks, and a green head All ducks have 2 orange legs with webbed feet Mass of one duck is 1.2 kg Using the students’ observations, what is the qualitative information?

They find that it can scratch quartz but can be scratched by a steel file. Is this qualitative or quantitative information? How can the information be changed to quantitative information?

Record Qualitative and Quantitative Information (page 2 of 2) The rock can scratch quartz but can be scratched by a steel file. Change the information into quantitative information.

Record Qualitative and Quantitative Information Make 3 qualitative and 3 quantitative observations about the browning of Fuji apples. Can you change your qualitative observations into quantitative? How? How will changing your qualitative observations help with comparing the apples?
