In your Science Notes notebook, complete one of the following assignments on methods for recording observations in science:
*Prepare a sketch of your yard. (review attributes of a sketch under "Drawing" from class handout)
* Make a Scientific Illustration/Diagram of a plant or animal in your yard. (review attributes of a sketch under "Drawing" from class handout )
* Create a table to organize the rubbish and recyclables we collect throughout the irst quarter at field science sites. The data on the table will be made into a chart or graph in science class. We collect HI-5 (aluminum, glass, plastic) and mixed rubbish. Note: if you choose this option, you may work in a spreadsheet application and submit to me via Google drive.
Tuesday, August 13
In your Science Inquiry notebook, go to your entry for either Monday or today's field science investigation, "Measuring Wind Speed". Using data from your anemometer, enter the wind speed into your field science weather data. Remember to indicate the unit of quantitative measurement you measured with your anemometer.
Complete the discussion section from" Measuring Wind Speed" Field Investigation.

Watch the first 9 minutes of this video
from 00:00 to 09:05
Invite someone in your home to watch with you.
In your Science Notes book, make an entry with the title "The Pleasure of Finding Things Out"
Reflect on Richard Feynman's recollections on some of his early learning experiences.
What is most significant for learning, observation or remembering facts and definitions.
Explain your response using an example from the video or from your own life.
If you watch with someone else, you do not need to write your reflection, your reflection is in your discussion. Have your discussion partner sign your student planner in the science section for today's date.
In your Science Notes:
1. Tell me who was Richard Feynman. Do not use the credentials listed on the video or look his name up online. Tell me something you know about how he understands the way the world from listening to him and watching him for 9 minutes.
How Do Scientist Work together to Solve Problems????
