Testing to learn

In 4 Grade Science class our students learn by themselves following the steps of an unit of  inquiry by making an observation, questioning about a fact and forming hypothesis.

Within the module “Energy and Motion” our students inquire about gravity and how an object’s surface area affect how quickly it falls.

In pairs, they recorded their findings and communicated the information they learned to their peers.

Inquiry-based learning helps students make their own connections about what they learn.
