Contextual Summary


Students work scientifically in observing and collecting data. They will discover which of the water chutes is the fastest by devising and/or conducting experiments. Students will use scientific terminology to describe their findings, and use standard measurement units to record their data.

Key Skills Practised
  • Recognising when a simple fair test is necessary
  • Making decisions about how to record and analyse data
  • Identification of key variables & choosing one to investigate
  • Making accurate observations
  • Using scientific terminology to describe findings
  • Working scientifically
Learning Opportunities

Pre-Visit

It is suggested to teachers that some background to the topic be taught and practiced in class prior to the trip so students are aware of the scientific skills they will be using.

On-Site

Students to complete tasks within the Science resource linked to this document

Post-Visit

Design more complex experiments to test the speed of different objects with variables as a focus.

Learning Outcomes

Some students are able to follow instructions for a simple scientific enquiry; some students will design a simple scientific enquiry. They can make systematic and careful observations. They can make accurate measurements using standard units. Students will use scientific language to explain their findings.
