Student Selected Scientific Research Projects

Yesterday we introduced our next science unit, which is student selected inquiry projects. Students first listed the steps involved and practiced creating reasonable timelines. Then we worked together to come to an agreement for due dates. Below you will find what they came up with.

The first step is to choose a question and get it approved. Appropriate questions are testable within a 2 week period with the resources available. They also are new and innovative. This means that it has not been done a million times already and can not be Googled. We brainstormed possible questions in class on Tuesday and I assured students I was happy to approve questions over break if they wanted to start researching.
