Today’s Objective: Today we worked towards a stronger understanding of the difference between qualitative observation, quantitative observation, and inference. We also looked into the definition of science.

Activity: I handed out vocabulary sheets and we reviewed the terms. We then applied those terms in looking at an image, developing inferences and explaining the observations that support the inference. Finally, we thought again about “elephant’s toothpaste” and considered if what I did during elephants toothpaste was or was not science.

Homework: Complete the observations and inferences of an item at home.
