No School Due to Closing 

Wednesday, January 29, 2014  F Day 
Objectives for the Lesson : As a result of the lesson students will...

1.) Learn the three types of Variables in an experiment. (  Variables. A variable is any factor, trait, or condition that can exist in differing amounts or types. An experiment usually has three kinds of variables: independent, dependent, and controlled.)
2.) Distinguish between the three types of variables: independent, dependent, and controlled.
3.) Identify the variables in three experiments.
4.) As a group generate the variables in their science experiment which will be word processed by the end of the class.

Lesson Overview: Today the students will be learning about the three different types of variables in a scientific experiment. Students will learn that the independent variable is change in the experiment. The dependent variable is how the experiment responds to the change ( independent variable) and the controlled is what is remaining the same. Student will analyze three labs and identify the independent variable, the dependent variable and the controlled variable. Student will then create the variables in their experiments. Students will word process variables for their report.

Evidence of Learning: Students will take their knowledge of variables and write up their independent variable, their dependent variable, and controlled variable for their experiments.

Objectives for the lesson: As a result of the lesson students will...
1.Learn how to write their hypothesis for their experiments in the If, then format.
2.) Students will write their hypothesis and then word process their hypothesis for their research report.

Lesson Overview: Students will learn they a hypothesis is:

  • hypothesis is an educated guess about how things work.
  • Most of the time a hypothesis is written like this: "If _____[I do this] _____, then _____[this]_____ will happen." (Fill in the blanks with the appropriate information from your own experiment.)
  • Your hypothesis should be something that you can actually test, what's called a testable hypothesis. In other words, you need to be able to measure both "what you do" and "what will happen."
