The Water Drop Lab/ controlling variables

Thursday, September 17
We performed a quick experiment that put our research on the properties of water to the test. This lab is an introduction to the methods scientists use to answer their own questions.  After performing the experiment, students made a colored bar graph and wrote a conclusion.

Friday, September 18
Since we didn't get exactly the same answers for our lab. results, we discussed the conditions that could have been different in our methods.  This led to our lesson on variables and controls.

Monday, September 22 - Wednesday, September 24
The guest teacher was able to help students review the methods of scientific inquiry in the textbook.
Variables and Controls were identified with Sponge Bob and pals in their experiments.
