Last week, students were tasked with the focus question:
“What are some possible solids we could find outside that would make a solution if we added water?” The students brainstormed in their science groups about some possibilities and then had a chance to find the solids.
Today, we continued our exploration about solutions, as our focus question was:
“How can we test if our solids we found outside form a solution?”
Using their background knowledge about mixtures and solutions, the students planned with their groups the steps that they would take to test their solutions.
Next, the students wrote a hypothesis, stating what they thought would be the outcome and why.
Lastly, the students conducted their experiements, using the steps that they created with their groups. They made note to make observations and keep evidence throughout their experiment.
Below are some pictures of their investigations today!
