This common science misconceptions activity is a great way to start your science year!
The idea is that science always searches for the truth. Just because most people believe something, or for our whole lives we thought something was true doesn’t necessarily mean it is. Students will learn to question everything.
There is a poster that explains what a misconception is, six common misconceptions and the fact, and a tips and suggestions sheet for teachers. There is also a follow-up worksheet for students to write a misconception and the fact surrounding that misconception.
