The theme for my Creating and Conducting Class was matter. Matter is everywhere and we explored a lot. This class focuses on teaching the scientific method. Students learn how to write a hypothesis, follow procedures, record data, graphing, and summarizing their results. They also create their own investigations. Students spent lots of time exploring effervescent tablets. They then came up with their own investigations. Each student did something different. Some changed the type of liquid and others changed the temperature of the water. They also measure different things such as the temperature of the liquid, the length of the reaction, and the time of the reaction. All were unique.
Here are some of the fun things we did this year.

Each student uses the workbook "Creating Original Investigations" to create an original science fair project. The projects were wonderful and well thought out. I was so impressed by their ability to explain their projects.
We did so many great things. I am finishing up writing all the experiments and lessons for the year.
