This is a great way to introduce your students to the scientific method. Students will use raisins to conduct a scientific observation and learn how to follow the procedure outlined by the scientific method. This activity will guide you and your students throughout the processes involved in the scientific method and allow them to access some higher order thinking.
I use this activity in the first weeks of school in my own classroom. This is a great way for kids to make a physical connection to the process of following the scientific method to come to a conclusion.
This activity treats the process as a fluid procedure which does not necessarily have to be followed in order. A focus is placed on allowing one question to lead to another.
Great for upper elementary through high school. This is an activity that both you and your students will enjoy.
*****This product does require the purchase of 1 1oz. box of raisins per student******
