PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Great 1st week or 1st month STEM activity! All parts are EDITABLE! This is a great way to introduce the science process (better phrase for scientific method).

*****Focus on the NGSS PRACTICES Dimension*****

The National Research Council's (NRC) Framework describes a vision of what it means to be proficient in science; it rests on a view of science as both a body of knowledge and an evidence-based, model and theory building enterprise that continually extends, refines, and revises knowledge. It presents three dimensions that will be combined to form each standard. This lesson will focus on and provide an introduction to the 1st DIMENSION, PRACTICES. The following are the practices that are emphasized in this lesson:

- Planning and carrying out investigations
- Analyzing and interpreting data
- Using mathematics and computational thinking
- Constructing explanations
- Engaging in argument from evidence
- Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

In this lab, students address the following focus question by shooting ping pong balls or paper balls into a beaker:

Does a relationship exist between the distance a shooter is from the beaker and the number of shots made by the shooter? Why or why not? If so, what is that relationship?

Students will:
1. Make predictions
2. Identify variables as well as a control.
3. Collect data
4. Graph data
5. Analyze data (Line of best fit or regression analysis for correlation)
6. Draw conclusions from an analysis of the data.
