This quarter your students will be learning about the nature of science and how scientist think and work. This includes the way scientist view the world around them and how they ask questions and seek out answers in a methodic way. They will also be learning about the scientific method by investigating each step of the scientific method in separate hands on activities. For example the students will create a marble roller coaster that successfully launches a marble into a cup a certain distance away. They will then have to write a procedure so that another group of students can duplicate the coaster and get the same results. I believe this method of teaching will enforce learning and allow your students to recall what they learned in a powerful yet meaningful way.
