Product Description
This is an awesome investigation for students to test a hypothesis, and learn about the nature of science - i.e., how science works in practice.

In this lesson, the teacher poses the question, "Why don't we have paper spoons?" through setting a scenario.
The teacher also provide students with two hypotheses, and students pick one and plan a procedure themselves to either support or refute the hypothesis they have chosen.

The students are not assessed on reaching a 'correct' answer to the question. This investigation is more about the METHOD students come up with for testing a hypothesis, and seeing if the observations they make - i.e., the evidence or data - they collect aligns to the chosen method of investigation.

Through this investigation students learn about the fact that there is not single prescriptive method scientists use to test a hypothesis.

Included in this lesson are:
---> detailed instructions to the teacher on how to implement this lesson
---> student Lab Report printable sheets
---> suggested materials list
----> homework for students
---> guidelines for the teacher to assess the scientific inquiry and grade lab reports
