Next another piece of the puzzle will be revealed and perhaps their inferences will be changed based on new...
Students will be able to differentiate between scientific observations and inferences. Students will make observations and inferences about real-life scenarios and objects.
Students should bring one found item to class. This item can be literally anything! Suggestions: something natural from your backyard, something you found on a neighborhood walk, a toy, a book, kitchen utensils, the list is truly endless.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
