- Visit http://www.scienceenligne.ca/ressources.asp
- Visit https://www.sciencebuddies.org/science-fair-projects/science-fair
- Review each section to
confirm understanding of the Scientific Method (this has been taught a
number of times already in class, in French. The Sciencebuddies
website is useful as there are project examples close by.)
- Select a topic/area of
interest for practicing the démarche scientifique. THE NEXT PART (g) WILL BE
DONE 100% INDIVIDUALLY NO PARTNERS NO TRIOS
- Students will research,
prepare and report on a hypothesis they proposed based on an
inspiration. Essentially, students will prepare a project as if they
were going to present their work to students, staff and parents in what
has traditionally been the NMS Science Fair.
- A number of projects are
displayed around my classroom as successful examples.
Students should be
prepared to display their work and present their a) Hypothesis, b) Testable Question,
and c) Results
with their classmates starting
the week of March 29th Students will display and present
to their class bubbles only.
*Students will demonstrate their understanding and
control of the Scientific Method (Démarche Scientifique)
Students were assigned the opportunity to practice
the démarche scientifique 4 times this year so far, with guidance.
This 5th iteration will be done 100%
independently with support from a number of resources.
*Students will conduct an
experiment an present an account of their experience in writing.
Testable Question (with variables) Materials and Protocol, Observations,
Results and Conclusion.)
*Students will present via
speaking in French what their Hypothesis and Testable Question were, and
what they found as an answer (Results)
