EC400 Early Childhood Math and Science
Unit 33 presented a basic formula for facilitating science investigations: the teacher poses a question, listens to hypothesis or predictions, allows students to investigate and collect data, listens to the data from the class and records it for the class to see. Then the teacher facilitates a discussion to compare the data with the original hypotheses. Your assignment is to choose and objective relevant to primary grades science. You should use a state standard just as you did for assignment 1. Then use the same lesson plan outline that you did for assignment 1 (see the table below) to create an inquiry based science lesson. For this assignment, instead of an initial activity you will start your lesson with a “motivating question” which should be a question that will be posed for the students to form hypothesis about? For the extension of the lesson instead of activities, I would like you to come up with at least two well thought out questions that you could ask your students that may require further investigations to take place. These questions could be what if questions about changing a variable.
