Designing and conducting an Experiment is one of the basic foundations of any science class. This activity serves as a great introduction to this skill. The students have notes that they complete as the teacher conducts a demonstration including a toy car and a ramp. There is also a PowerPoint included that the students can follow along with.
This activity goes great with my Scientific Method Project and my Experimental Design assessment (both available in my store). It is also serves as a easy introduction if you are doing science fair with your students.
This file is included as a Word document in my Science as Inquiry Unit Bundle, which is available in my store as well.
