Thinking Like A Scientist

By Alesha LeMmon

Today in Mr. Whiting’s Science 7 classes, students were “thinking like a scientist” as they performed an experiment testing the buoyancy of various objects. Using the scientific method, students had to hypothesize whether the object would float or sink, test by placing objects into water, record their findings, and draw a conclusion about the level to which objects floated or sunk.

Mr. Whiting created an interactive lab for students to examine and learn the scientific method that his classes will use all year as they “think like a scientist”!
