What Process Skills from the Smarter Science Framework are being used and/or taught during this plan?
NB: choose a maximum of 4 skills total. 1 or 2 are best.
Activities that verify already known results; useful for learning techniques e.g. how to use a microscope or pipetting
Activities where students learn to analyze and communicate their results independently. e.g. what patterns did you find when you followed my procedure and examined how the length of the pendulum affects its swing time?
Activities where students are given a challenge by the teacher and students are expected to develop procedure, analyze and communicate the findings independently. e.g. Investigate what affects enzyme activity.
Activities spurred by independently generated student-questions based on the current unit being studied.
