Reflection: Student Grouping Celery Experiment - Section 3: Explore


In the ask and observe section of the scientific method,  the students are still learning how to develop questions that relate to the experiment. Most of their questions were: What will we do with the items? Why are the items there? I want the students to learn how to create inquiry-based  questions that lead to an investigation. I wanted some of questions to be: How will the colored water help the celery? Will the colored water change the color of the celery? To assist the students' learning,  I will provide some examples in the next investigation.
