INQUIRY and what those skills look like. We came up with this list of ideas:
-Make a Model
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!
