Scientific Method - Observation & Inference - Science Interactive Notebook

Review the concepts of observation and inference as students gather information about a scenario and then make personal inferences based on their observations in our Excavating Evidence Activity. Students draw individual and unique conclusions and then communicate their findings by creating a story or comic strip to explain their observations and inferences in detail. It's a great way to illustrate that even though we see the same evidence, we all arrive at different conclusions.

This product includes:

* Engaging PowerPoint complete with instructions and example

* Pdf document in Interactive Notebook (INB) format - whole sheet folds in half to easily fit inside student notebooks

* Instructions on how to use our INB sheets.
