Investigate how long it takes folded paper flowers with different numbers of petals to unfold when placed in water.This series of activities uses the included paper flower templates to take students through levels of scaffolded inquiry. Students cut out the paper flowers, fold the petals, place them in water, and time how long it takes for the paper flowers to unfold. They compare and contrast size, number of petals, and materials complete to a self directed full inquiry. Great to get ready for science fair or use as a class science fair project
Scaffolded inquiry (Directed, Guided, Connected and Full) provide essential support to help students construct the skills and knowledge needed to conduct independent inquiry.
