PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson makes a subject that can be very confusing, very easy, and the first step is being able to define what an empirical observation is and what an inference is.

It takes about 30 minutes and can produce substantial growth from beginning to end. Whether you are introducing this content for the first time in elementary, or reviewing it for grades as high as 12th, this is a fun and effective activity. It also makes for a quick pre- and post-assessment.

The Common Core benchmark addressed is the ability to distinguish between empirical observation (what you see, hear, feel, smell, or taste) and ideas or inferences (what you think).

This activity also addresses Marzano’s Elements:

2: What do I typically do to track student progress?
3: What do I typically do to celebrate student success?
6: What do I typically do to identify critical information?

The activity is a fill-in-the-blank slide with an answer key.

It ends with a wonderful quote by Albert Einstein, “You never fail until you stop trying.”
