!This week, we continued to practice a very important scientific competency: making detailed observations. We also learned about the difference between what we see and what we think. One is called an observation and the other, an inference. We used a photo borrowed from a Smarter Science activity and many of us said we could see space right away. Ms. B tried to help us understand that we can see shapes, colours, and patterns, but we can't "see" that the photo is of space. She is going to give us written feedback before we try this activity again with a new photo. It was a great way to get us thinking about space while practicing curricular competencies. Some of us noticed the ELC4 in the photo and quickly wanted to learn more about it, so we might share what we found next time!
We are a class of Grade 6/7 students in Surrey, BC, Canada. This blog is one way we will share our learning with the world!
