In this episode, students return to science class with background research in hand. They use this research to generate hypotheses. I discuss the way students debate predictions and use their research to back up their ideas. I also explain the hypothesis format I use and how it helps students envision the entire experiment.
If you’ve been struggling to make Science Fair a meaningful experience for your students and you, join in the conversation on the Science Fair Podcast.
In this first episode, I talk about how I introduce the science fair concept to my seventh grade students. The whole podcast is recorded on my commute to work, so it lasts less than fifteen minutes . Check out this podcast each day as I talk about my day-to-day experiences and challenges working through the science fair process with my students.
