What is science

What is Science?


Sixth grade

Science is the study of the natural world.


Scientists do many things

Scientists do many things

  • Observe

  • Test or experiment

  • Classify

  • Make Conclusions

  • Share their ideas

Scientists have a process they use to answer questions about nature

Scientists have a process they use to answer questions about nature.

To answer a question about something that happens in the natural world, they go through a scientific process. They…

  • Set up an experiment

    • Materials, Plan, Variables, Written Data

  • Analyze the data

    • Graph and explanation of what happened

  • Draw a conclusion

    • They write down what they learned

    • The see if their question was answered.


For an experiment today lets discover about sound

For an experiment today, lets discover about sound.

  • Look at the cans that are in front

  • of you.

  • What are some questions you might have about sound pertaining to these cans?


Observation

Observation

  • What are the characteristics that you see that make these cans alike?

  • What are characteristics that you see that make these cans different?


Testing and experimenting

Testing and Experimenting

What are some of the ways that you could think of to see if the cans have the same sounds or different sounds?


Testing and experimenting1

Testing and Experimenting

  • Let’s test to see if these cans have

  • the same sound or different sounds.

    • Hit each can with the different things you have at your seat.

    • What do you hear?

    • Does the sound matter what you hit the can with?

    • Does it matter how hard or soft you hit it?

    • Which items worked best to hear the sounds?

    • What are your observations about your experimentation?


Testing and experimenting2

Testing and Experimenting

  • Let’s do one more experiment.

    • There is a hole at the top of your can.

    • Tie the paperclip to one of the ends of the string.

    • Put the other end of the string down through the hole.

    • Tape the paperclip to the top of the can.

    • With your wet towel, put down on the string.

    • What do you observe about this experiment?


Conclusions and sharing

Conclusions And Sharing

  • What do these experiments

  • tell you about the different ways to hear the sounds of the different cans?

  • What conclusions can you make about these experiments?

  • How can you relate these discoveries to real world ideas?

  • What do you think would happen if you used paper or plastic cups instead of metal cans?
