With this product you will be able to teach your students how to set up and conduct an investigation using the scientific method.

First you will lead a whole group investigation, where everyone follows the same question and hypothesis. This gives you a chance to model good scientific thinking and quality work for each step. By providing this group activity you are giving students everything they will need to be successful when they work independently.

Then, you will release some of the responsibility to the kids as they plan and conduct a similar investigation, using what they learned from the group experiment.
