## Presentation on theme: "Warm up: Make 5 Observations about this picture"— Presentation transcript:

Warm Up NO talking. NO exceptions.

Warm Up (on a scrap piece of paper)
What is an observation? Define in your own words Look at the image below & make 3 observations No Talking…No Exceptions

Housekeeping / Announcements
Did anyone remember…. Parent Survey Signed Syllabus CMS Forms Homework: Quiz tomorrow! After the quiz, we will trade and grade and track our mastery. Afterwards, we will begin our Smarties activity.

Let’s Check for Learning
Watch this Wright brothers video using the scientific method. What was the purpose? What research was done? What was their hypothesis? What experiments did they do? What analysis was done? What was their conclusion?

Continue writing notes on the left side : Paper Airplanes
Write “Paper Airplanes Experiment” and underline it. The next slide has a lot of information….. You will only be taking notes today, so write all notes thoroughly and completely to help you complete our activities on Wednesday and Thursday

Purpose: How can I make this airplane fly farther.
Research: I know that paper airplanes fly better when: they have wing flaps; I use tape; and they have some kind of “nose.” Hypothesis: I think that airplanes with pointed noses will fly farther than ones with square noses Experiment: Make 2 paper airplanes that are mostly the same. Make one nose square. Throw each plane 10 times. Measure the distance they go. Make a graph. Analysis: My graph shows that the plane with the square nose went farther than the pointed nose one… Conclusion: My hypothesis was wrong. I thought that the pointed-nose airplane would go farther, but actually, the square-nose one went farther.

Continue writing notes on the left side Observations
Any information collected with the senses. These are facts. Sight Smell Taste Touch Hearing

Continue writing notes on the left side
Two types of observations: Qualitative (leave space in notebook) Skip 6 lines Quantitative (leave space in notebook)

Continue writing notes on the left side Qualitative
Qualitative: describes something that can be observed but not measured. smells like fresh baked cookies tastes bitter red sunset

Qualitative Activity Draw a picture of something you can make a qualitative example of Activity: on the right side of your notebook describe your picture with a qualitative statement My Qualitative example: My flower has soft petals

Continue writing notes on the left side Quantitative
It is measureable or countable 3 meters long 4 marbles the quantity of something (can be a length, a weight, a temperature) Think: QuaNtitative: N = Numbers

Activity: on the right side of your notebook
1.Draw a picture of something quantitative 2. Write a quantitative statement for your picture. My Quantitative example: my flower has 5 petals

Let’s Observe Stuff On right side of your book
Object Qualitative Observation Quantitative Observation On right side of your book

Continue writing notes on left side Inference
Inference: Making a guess or prediction based on what you observe. observation + observation inference

Continue writing notes on left side
Remember, how do we observe? Observations can be _________ & ________ We know that observations lead to inferences……so now it’s your turn……

Continue writing notes on left side Inference Practice:
Observations: I hear people screaming I smell popcorn and cotton candy Hamburgers cost \$5.00 each I see 15 of people in line Inference = ? Now, turn and talk with your partner

The Case of the Mystery Footprints
More Practice The Case of the Mystery Footprints

Look at these two sets of animal tracks.
Write “Animal Tracks Observation” Observation 1- Observation 2- Observation 3- Inference-

Now what do you think? Make 3 more OBSERVATIONS (right side)
Make an INFERENCE (right side)

Now what do you think? Make 3 more OBSERVATIONS (right side)
Make an INFERENCE (right side)

Cut and Sort Activity You will work with a partner that I assign to complete this activity

Cut and Sort Activity Each pair will receive a set of directions
Follow each step as we go over them together as a whole group Follow along…. Step 1

Cut and Sort Activity (right side) your page should look like this
Scientific Method Steps Example 1 -Airplanes Example 2 -Flowers

Cut and Sort Activity (right side)
Follow along as we continue with the step 2 directions…. You will each cut out the Scientific Method Steps You will work with your table partner to put these in the correct order As a pair, you must agree on the order Once you agree, glue them in the Scientific Method column

Cut and Sort Activity Follow the directions and complete the cut and sort for: Example 1 – Airplanes Example 2 – Flowers

Cut and Sort Activity You should now have all three columns filled
Let’s go over these together…. We will now begin our next group activity….

Purpose: How can I make this airplane fly farther.
Research: I know that paper airplanes fly better when: they have wing flaps; I use tape; and they have some kind of “nose.” Hypothesis: I think that airplanes with pointed noses will fly farther than ones with square noses Experiment: Make 2 paper airplanes that are mostly the same.

Classifying : Inferences & Observations
You will work with your table partner to complete this activity As a pair, you will read each statement together and discuss if the statement is an Inference or an Observation

Classifying : Inferences & Observations
When you and your partner agree, write ‘I’ for inference or ‘O’ for observation beside each statement Example: Ms. Sproule’s hair is brown ‘O’

Inference (I) or Observation (O)
Review Statements As a class, we will review each statement to determine if it is an Inference (I) or Observation (O)

Graphic Organizer Completion
When you finish classifying each statement: Copy at least 5 inferences into the oval Copy at least 5 observations in the rectangle under the correct column heading: Quantitative (can be measured, a number) Qualitative (can only be observed, not measured)

Graphic Organizer Completion
Now that we have classified each statement, you will Write inferences in the oval Write observations in the rectangle under the correct column heading: Quantitative (can be measured, a number) Qualitative (can only be observed, not measured)

Graphic Organizer Next you will make up on your own: 2 inferences
2 qualitative observations 2 quantitative observations Add these to either the oval (inferences) or the rectangle (qualitative / quantitative)

Graphic Organizer Now make up : 3 inferences – add to the oval
2 qualitative observations 2 quantitative observations add to rectangle

Graphic Organizer Now make up : 3 inferences – add to the oval
2 qualitative observations 2 quantitative observations add to rectangle

Graphic Organizer into Interactive Notebook
Take and fold your graphic organizer and glue into your notebook on the right side

Review for Quiz Use the remaining time in class to study for your quiz tomorrow!
