Investigating scientific topics involves a process of inquiry and a method that students need to replicate when designing experiments.
This 41 page pack takes students through the process step-by-step using a variety of formats. There are pages that can be made into booklets for students to complete during guided or independent investigations. Also included are display materials to support your teaching of the stages and for students to refer to.
You will receive:
Posters showing the stages in a science inquiry
Student booklet for use during an inquiry (includes an assessment rubric for Australian grades 5 and 6)
Vocabulary Display Cards
