th
Unit 1:
Scientific
Method and
Measurement
Unit Big Idea (Scientific Method/Measurement)
Inq.1: Design a simple experimental procedure with an identified control and appropriate
variables.
Inq.2: Select tools and procedures needed to conduct a moderately complex experiment
Inq.3: Interpret and Translate Data into a table, graph or diagram.
Inq.4: Draw a conclusion that establishes a cause and effect relationship that is
supported by evidence.
Inq.5: Identify a faulty interpretation of data that is due to bias or experimental error.
Students will know:
 Vocabulary to include: scientific method, observation, SI unit
Inq1:
Inq2:
Inq3

Tools to be used throughout school year (graduated cylinder, beaker, balance
scale, spring scale, test tube, pipette, meter stick, litmus paper)
Safety procedures
Types of graph (line, bar and circle graphs) and when to use
Students will understand that:
 The scientific method and measurements are used throughout one’s lifetime:
medication dosages, cooking, building, etc.
 Improvement of human existence with regards to the planet through new
inventions for the betterment of society.
Students will be able to:
 Identify independent & dependent variables as well as controls in an experiment
 Interpret and translate data to make a graph.
 Identify bias and/or experimental error while drawing conclusions during an
experiment
 Identify cause/effect relationship from data in an experiment.
 Select appropriate tools to analyze objects’ measurements (mass, volume,
density)
 Use appropriate tools, techniques and SI units to perform a moderately complex
experiments
