Science and Engineering Practice 1: Asking Questions and Defining Problems and Practice 3: Planning and Carrying Out Investigations go together hand in hand.
Asking questions is something every scientist must do. The questions are almost always about a phenomenon, like “why does the ocean have waves?” Practice 3 has students figuring out what the best way to answer that questions might be, planning the investigation, implementing and collecting data to analyze.
In this introductory bundle to the two practices, students are immediately hooked with fun, squishy, colorful, polymers known as Orbeez. I have used this exact lesson in my own classroom in the first week of school with immense success!
This complete bundle, designed for the Middle School level, sets up teachers to easily evaluate these Science and Engineering Practices. The bundle follows the 5E model of teaching and planning.
Powerpoints and handouts are editable to meet the needs of your classroom.
This bundle includes:
- Complete lesson plan for 5E lessons
- Editable evaluation and grading rubric to customize to your classroom
- Handouts for group discussions and generation of ideas
- Signs for stations
- Editable version of the packet for the investigation and plannigng
