Results: Use words and drawings (be as specific as possible ) to describe exactly what you did to save fred! Analysis: Answer Analysis Questions 1, 4 and 5. Reflection: People face problems in their lives every day. What did you learn from this activity that you can use to solve other problems? How do you think this compares with how scientists solve problems?
  5. 5. Activity 2: The Pellagra Story September 3- 4, 2013 Getting Started: List 3 things things that scientists could do to learn more about a disease and its cause or causes? Introduction: Read and summarize pg. A-8 in 2 sentences.
