Product Description
Scientific Method and Pendulums- use the scientific method to learn about the concepts of variables, amplitude, bob weight and rod length with a simple, yet fascinating, object- the pendulum!

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

This resource contains two investigations. One investigation is led by you as a guided experiment. Students gain exposure to new concepts, and practice following the scientific method as the teacher models quality questioning, writing and procedural techniques.

Then, the second experiment releases some of the independence to the kids as they design their own investigation to learn more about variables that effect the swing time of pendulums.

This resource includes:
directions
materials list
sample schedule for activities
vocabulary list
vocabulary word cards
scientific method word cards
Galileo's Pendulum Formula poster
How to make a pendulum
Helpful hints and Information
Pendulum diagram
Group investigation sheets
Independent student investigation sheets
Two (2) written response activities

Concepts covered include:
pendulum construction
variables
mass
bob
period
gravity
friction
amplitude
trajectory
pivot
Galileo's Pendulum Formula
collecting and recording data
graphing data
and more!


Please download the preview to see more specifics on what this resource includes.

This would be a great homeschool investigation as it does not require a group of students to conduct!
