Hi! I hope you enjoy viewing this science inquiry skills graphing and data collection pack. This pack has been designed to align with the Australian Curriculum – Science Inquiry Skills.
The graphs are perfect for science specialists looking for a way to teach graphing skills that become progressively harder – perfect for those who need a differentiated curriculum or teach multiple year levels.
This set is based on the question, ‘what type of scientist would you rather be?’. It can link well with science as a human endeavor– exposing children to three very different examples of how science knowledge is used in real life experiences while also teaching children about different science related jobs.
Using such a simple question allows children to investigate something without the need for equipment used in a traditional experiment. This is done intentionally to enable the teacher to focus on the explicit teaching of how to pose questions, collect, graph and interpret data.
The printables in this pack uses THE SAME question – it simply caters for a range of ability or year levels. If you teach multiple year levels, you can also use them with both younger and older students while learning about a specific science understanding.
These are numerous versions included, ranging from complex to simple to cater for a range of year levels and ability levels.
You may like to enlarge and copy the coloured versions then use these during mat sessions and complete the investigations as a whole group.
Alternatively, you can print and laminate numerous copies for your science center, using as ‘write and wipe’ data investigation recording sheets.
What you get:
Each version comes in both colour and black and white and each version comes with an option of 20 as the highest number possible (great for whole class surveys) and 12 as the highest number possible – great for children to use independently where you ask them to survey up to 12 children. This would work best for older students.
