09.05 D5 Sci Method And SongPresentation Transcript
Day 5: Sept 5/8
Objective: SWBAT apply the scientific method
Homework: Pages 14 and 16
Warm up: Make 2 quantitative and 2 qualitative observations
Setting up Page 15 for notes
Put “Scientific Method” as heading
Skip two lines
Draw a horizontal line
Skip SIX lines
Draw a horizontal line
Repeat steps 4-5 five more times (total of seven lines)
Page 15 set up (cont’d) Day: D All: A Plant: P Farmers: F Great: G Six: S
This is a series of steps that scientists use answer questions and solve problems
Six: State the Problem
Identify the question or subject to study
Great: Gather Information
Research the subject.
Places to do research: library, internet, encyclopedia, television, etc.
Farmers: Form Hypothesis
The educated guess or best guess about what will happen in the experiment.
Usually has the words “If... Then”
IF I eat 23 hot dogs, THEN I will get sick
Plant: Perform Experiment
Develop a way to test the hypothesis
Independent Variable : part of the experiment that can be changed or controlled
Dependent Variable : What is measured in the experiment
Controls : A group where nothing is tested
Constants : Things that are held the same
All: Analyze Data
Compile data into charts and graphs
This helps make sense of the information taken from the experiment
Day: Draw Conclusions
Decides whether the original hypothesis was correct.
If the answer is “ YES ” then you are done
If the answer is “ NO ” then a new hypothesis is made and you repeat the experiment
Page 14 assignment
Make a sequence thinking map for SGFPAD with a picture for each step!
Time to glue!
Flip chart “More SGFPAD Practice to 16”
Glue “Scenario” sheet to 17
Guided Practice page 17
Underneath the scenario, write out the steps of the scientific method, skipping a few lines in between each
State the problem:
With table partner
Work to identify the different parts of the scientific method.
You will have 6 min 47 seconds before we come back whole group. Each group member needs to be ready to present!!
Go over scenario
SP: Do any of the keys work on the elevator?
GI: Elevator repair person was there; keys are the correct size
FH: At least one of the keys should operate the elevator
PE: Test each key
DV: Does the elevator open
IV: the key used
AD: Two of the ten keys turned on the elevator
DC: Hypothesis was correct because two keys worked and Albi predicted at least one would work
A Mystery Song…
Raise your hand if you know what this song is.
The Scientific Method Song Produced by Master “G” with Nelly and the St. Lunatics
While we’re in the studio
TIME IS MONEY
MONEY IS TIME
Scientific Method Song - 1st Verse (To the tune of Ride Wit’ Me - Nelly) If you got a question needs an answer you see, Gotta gather information in the library Oh why must I do it this way? MUST BE THE METHOD!
Scientific Method Song - 2nd Verse First hypothesize what the answer could be, Then perform an experiment 1-2-3 Oh why must I do it this way? MUST BE THE METHOD!
Scientific Method Song - 3rd Verse Then record the data in the data sheet, Draw up some conclusions and then repeat Oh why must I do it this way? MUST BE THE METHOD!
