Unit 7: Writing Projects

Independent

Projects:

  • Make a poster of a science experiment that you did at home or in class. Be sure to include your question, hypothesis, materials, procedure, and results/findings!

Games & Activities:

  • Design your own science experiment using a solid, liquid, or gas. Write your hypothesis, procedure, and observations.
  • Think about an experiment that we did together in class. What is one thing that you could change to take your experiment one step further? Write a procedure for your brand new experiment!
  • Go on a solids, liquids, and gases hunt! Write down as many ways as you can see solids, liquids, and gases changing in your everyday life. Think about how a scientist would write about their findings!

Family

Games & Activities:

  • Choose five words of the week or words you are practicing in class. Practice spelling them with a family member or quiz yourself.
  • Brainstorm a scientific question with your family that you have always been wondering about. Do some research to see if you can find an answer to your question!
  • Perform an at home science experiment with your family. Talk about your results/findings together.
  • Take a walk with a family member or friend with a scientist’s field journal in hand. Observe the world around you. What questions do you have? What hypothesis or predictions could you make that would answer your question?
  • Explain to a family member the scientific method for writing about science. What is each part of our process? Why is it important?

Projects:

  • Make a video of yourself completing an experiment. Be sure to explain your procedure as you are completing each step.
