The Scientific Method

We have been exploring her scientific method. We began by going through an experiment using the app Gizmos. Today we are going to use the scientific method to learn about the force of gravity. We have been discussing the meaning of several terms and today students are going to use these terms to go through and write up an experiment. 

We also discussed how to write about our observations using diagrams as well as words. 

After reviewing the scientific method, we began our science experiment. We wanted to test the force of gravity on various objects.

The students began by writing the purpose of the experiment, their hypothesis, the materials... And then the experiment began! We dropped various objects from the same height and timed it using a stopwatch. 

We recorded the times on our experiment sheet and began to analyze the results of the experiment.
