Ask your student how to zero and use the triple beam balance. This will be one of our science tools this year.
We are currently exploring the elements of inquiry: observation, inference, conclusions.
We will be doing our initial inquiry benchmark the week of September 12th. Everything will be done in class and will let both the students and I know what their current understanding is of the inquiry process.
After the benchmark, we begin our exploration of the properties of matter. Look for pictures of our class in the near future!
