Thinking Like A Scientist..again

Due Today: Doing Science
Let's make some observations on p.20 in your IA Notebook of the snake!

How are opinions, observations and inferences different?
There are two types of observations we make in science: Qualitative and Quantitative.
Please, define and give examples of each on p.21 in your I.A. Notebook. Using two different colors, Highlight the definition of each. Next, back to your observations and use the same two colors to highlight examples of each type of observation with corresponding colors.
We made some inferences based on our observations.  Define inference.  Draw a line to connect the the inferences we made to the observations they were based upon.

Tonight: Practice these skills with the lab sheets on Observing and Inferring.
