  1. 1. Basic Science Process Skills Materials in this presentation are protected under the Fair Use Exemption of U.S. Copyright Law. ©2008 Lisa Williams. All rights reserved
  2. 2. Observing Using The five senses to describe objects and events. Qualitative: color, shape Quantative: length, mass, volume, temperature
  3. 3. Classifying Sorting objects or events into groups Base groups on common characteristics or attributes
  4. 4. Measuring Determining the length, volume, mass, temperature, or area to describe and quantify objects. Use the proper tools and equipment International System of Measurement ( the Metric System)
  5. 5. Modeling Used to observe or test an object too small or too large to see Examples: A cell, the solar system, a tadpole changing to a frog. Physical Model Conceptual Model– on paper, computer screen or in your mind.
  6. 6. Communicating: Sharing observations and explanations or objects or events with others Make a record by drawing, writing, charting, graphing, counting
  7. 7. Inferring and predicting Explaining or drawing conclusions based on observations. Telling why something happened Tell what you think might happen
  8. 8. Using Variables Variable – a factor that affects the outcome of the experiment Types Manipulated- the factors you change Responding – what changes when the variables change Constant - the factor that does not change
  9. 9. Representing Data Organizing observations and measurements Table, charts, graphs
  10. 10. Experimenting Asking a question Planning an investigation Collecting data Forming a conclusion
