Becoming Scientists

Today, we started talking about what it means to truly become a scientist. We began by using the word INQUIRY and what those skills look like. We came up with this list of ideas:
-Record data
-Make a Model
-Communicate conclusions

We said that our inquiry skills were used to help us find out information. We also talked about how we don't have to limit our inquiry to merely science, it can be in any part of our lives.

We then watched a BrainPop Jr. video about the Scientific Method and all of it's steps. Basically, the scientific method is the steps in which we plan and conduct an experiment. Here are the steps we reviewed:

1. Ask a question
2. Make a hypothesis (prediction)
3. Experiment and record your data
4. Draw a conclusion
5. Share your results

We are on our way to being amazing scientists!
