Think Like a ScientistPosted by Carlene Gordon
Science education requires students to develop their ability to engage in scientific thinking. Fourth graders are discovering what it means to be a scientist. How does a scientist ask questions? What tools do scientists use? What is an observation? What is the scientific method? In our first science unit this year, students are learning the answers to these questions and many more! Our fourth graders are asking scientific questions, researching and constructing hypotheses and then testing their hypotheses through experiment and investigation. Students are carefully recording and charting data in order to form valid conclusions. Finally, students are composing their findings clearly and effectively to share with fellow scientists.
