1 Word of the Day 10/15/14 Formal Formal is an adjective. The definition of formal is having a regular or orderly pattern or arrangement; bound.An example of how you might use formal in a sentence is: The unsatisfied customer lodged a formal complaint to the manager.
2 WARM UPList as many qualitative and quantitative observations about your neighbor’s hand as you can..ANSWER: answers will varyWrinkledPinkish and tan color5 large blue veins visible5 fingers of different lengthsFingernails are made of different material than the skinHair is present on back side but not on palmShakes when hold very stillFingers are approximately 6 cm in length.Length of hand, from wrist to longest finger, is approximately 10 cm.5 min Students fill in planner and notebook and warm up 5 minutes set timer tell will usually have only 5 min to do these tasksCall on a student to answer – reveal and have students copy if had something else- HAND OUT GLUE IN WHILE STUDENTS WORK ON WARM UP!Date: August 7th, 2014 Activity: Science Safety and NotebookTable of contents: page number science safety date
3 Scientific Method Notes #2 students please open folder and hand out the scientific method notes You will fill in the blanks with the words written in red as Mrs. Groom reads the information.
5 Steps in the Scientific Method ObservationHypothesisExperimentData CollectionConclusionCommunicate
6 Observations Gathered through your senses A scientist notices something in their natural world
7 ObservationsAn example of an observation might be noticing that many salamanders near a pond have curved, not straight, tails
8 Hypothesis A suggested solution to the problem. Must be testable Usually written as If…Then… statementsPredicts an outcome
9 Hypothesis An example of a hypothesis might be “ If salamanders have curved tails then they are better adapted to a pollutant in the moist soil where they live.”
10 A procedure to test the hypothesis. ExperimentA procedure to test the hypothesis.
11 Variable – factor in the experiment that is being tested
12 Experiment (Big Bang Clip) A good or “valid” experiment will only have ONE variable!
13 Data Results of the experiment May be quantitative (numbers) or qualitative
14 DataMust be organizedCan be organized into charts, tables, or graphs
15 ConclusionThe answer to the hypothesis based on the data obtained from the experiment
16 CommunicateScientists always communicate their results. Experiments must be repeatable by other scientists.
17 Review 1)Identify a Problem 2) State Observations about the problem 3) Form a Hypothesis about the problem (if…then…)4) Design an Experiment to test the hypothesis5) Collect Data (qualitative and quantitative observations)6) Form a Conclusion7) Communicate steps and results
18 Add information to add to their glue in about the independent and dept variable cause and effect!
19 TELL STUDENTS WE WILL USE THIS MODEL AS A RESOURCE FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR TELL STUDENTS WE WILL USE THIS MODEL AS A RESOURCE FOR THE ENTIRE YEAR! WE WILL COME BACK AND REVIEW IT AT THE END OF THE UNIT
20 Cut and Glue the following papers in your notebooks: scientific method notes and study guideThe chart of the steps of the scientific methodYou have 5 minutes!Set timer 5 min
21 Scientific Method Foldable Directions: You will each create a tab foldable of the steps of the scientific methodInsert picture of foldableScanned picture
22 Scientific Method Foldable Directions: #2 students please hand out 4 pieces of blank paper to each studentWe will create the foldable in steps together.When you have successfully folded your paper hold it up so Mrs. Groom can check that you did it right.
23 Use your ruler to measure 3 Use your ruler to measure 3.5 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark.Write 1 on this paper in pencil3.5 cm
24 Use your ruler to measure 5 Use your ruler to measure 5.0 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark.Write 2 on this paper in pencil5.0 cm
25 Use your ruler to measure 8 Use your ruler to measure 8.0 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark.Write 3 on this paper in pencil8.0 cm
26 Use your ruler to measure 12 Use your ruler to measure 12.0 cm from the top of the paper and mark it with your pencil.Fold the paper HORIZONTALLY at the mark.Write 4 on this paper in pencil12.0 cm
27 Insert the paper with the #2 written on it under the paper with the #1 on it. HOLD UP YOUR FLIPBOOK SO MRS. GROOM CAN CHECK THAT IT IS FOLDED CORRECTLY.STAPLE THE TOP OF THE FLIPBOOK 3 TIMES – SEE MRS. GROOM’S EXAMPLEErase the numbers on the papers
28 Experiment/Procedure Write the following labels on each flap – write in pencil – you can use markers laterThe Scientific MethodQuestion/ProblemObservationsHypothesisExperiment/ProcedureData AnalysisConclusionsCommunicate
29 See Mrs. Groom’s example Each flap/step of the scientific method will include:Key information and details related to that step in the scientific method.See Mrs. Groom’s exampleWork on your foldable flapbook until Mrs. Groom calls for clean up, then collect flapbooks in your period’s table folder in the bin.
30 Read the article and answer the questions on the back of the paper #2 students please open your folder and hand out the scientific process readingRead the article and answer the questions on the back of the paperHold onto your papers we will grade them and collect them at the end of classAllow students 10 minutes to read and answer questions on the back of the page, read the questions out loud before they read, tell them to underline key words and concepts related to the scientific method. Set timer for 10 minutes after read questionsStudents exchange papers, 10 points total, write name at bottom in pen or marker
31 Tell students they will be reading about the scientific method and answering the following questions. Set timer for 10 minutes.
32 Name of grader at bottom Total out of 10 at top ex: 10/10 Grading procedurePut pencil awayUse pen to gradeName of grader at bottomTotal out of 10 at top ex: 10/105 minutes to grade and collect
