Science investigations can be fun, but having the students accurately record things can be extremely difficult. Since my husband teaches science, he helped me to create my newest product on Teachers Pay Teachers - a 12 page generic science investigation packet for grades 3-4. The inquiry packet guides the student through the six steps of the scientific method:
1) Investigating Properties
3) Making a plan
4) Determining the Investigative Question
5) Prediction and Data Collection
6) Writing a conclusion based on the data.
This packet consists of an introduction, simple and clear step-by-step directions on how to use the packet, a three page student investigation packet, a blank graphing grid, a property word list, an optional student checklist and a four point grading rubric for the teacher. I hope you find it to be a valuable classroom resource.
