Introduction to Science – I can statements
I can identify the parts of the scientific method observations, questions (stating the problem), forming a hypothesis, testing hypotheses, organizing and analyzing data, drawing conclusions.
I can explain and identify the parts of a scientific experiment: control group, experimental group, constants, independent variable, dependent variable.
I can develop a hypothesis in the proper "If, then" format to test a question.
I can design and carry out my own experiment that has all the correct parts.
I can organize data gathered during an experiment into a data table.
I can create a graph from the data in my table that has all of the correct parts.
I can use scientific concepts to explain and support my conclusion.
I can identify at least three errors I made, either in designing my experiment or ones I made during the experiment, and explain how they could have made my data less accurate.
I can recognize the WHMIS symbols .
By understanding the WHMIS symbols I can handle chemicals properly.
I can identify all the parts of a compound light microscope.
I can use a microscope to identify small objects.
I can decide what type of microscope should be used for different samples.
