We have finished Unit 1 so now students will do a couple of Science Literacy evaluations. The first is called a Case Study where students read a Science story, like they would see in a newspaper, then answer a few questions. The second is Data Analysis. That is taking the results from an already finished experiment and graphing the information and answering a couple of questions. I will explain the difference between both and we will review a sample Data Analysis that they will be doing this week. The sample answers are on Google Classroom for Science.
