Welcome to the Granite Team and Science!

For October 2018



WELCOME to the science website for the Granite Team!

It is hard to believe it is October already!  Happy Fall!!

We are working hard in our scientific method unit.  We have learned all about what a testable question is and how to write them.  We have also finished our first experiment titled The Gummy Bear Lab.  Students worked on writing a testable question, a hypothesis using an if/then statement, using a data table, graphing data, and writing a conclusion. This week, we are finishing practicing testable questions and writing an if/then statement for our hypothesis.  In our next experiment, The Fidget Spinner Time Challenge, we will practice all of the above as we learn how to conduct experiments.

Over the next few weeks, we will continue the above work, but add in variables and analysis of data. Each week we will be completing an experiment that will help us practice the skills we are learning.  Their assessment on this unit will be each student conducting an experiment on their own from start to finish!!

If you need to contact me, please e-mail me at ddecibus@conval.edu or call the school at 924-7105.  I return calls and most e-mails after 2:30.

Have a good week!

Stay Curious!
