Scientific Saturdays: Scientific Method

 I am starting the scientific method and matter with my fifth graders this week.  We will be reviewing the steps by reading about them in our "Sciencesaurus" book, putting in a page in our science notebooks from Laura Candler and watch Study Jams.

On Day 2 we will start with "The Scientific Rap" on youtube.   Then we will begin the banana experiment.  I have seen it on Pinterest and other blogs(google for ideas).  The children come up with many ways to keep a banana fresh.  I will have them observe for one week.  We will use the lab report below.
Day three will be looking at physical properties of objects.  I will be using a lesson from the Evan Moor chemistry book.

More to come….
