Activity Title: The best thing about investigating scientifically


Two girls describe the best things out conducting science investigations.

Video 1: What was the best thing about doing a science investigation?



Student: In the science investigation it was all the hands on work

that we did and not the paperwork like writing the results out

it was like putting the clothes in the wash, staining it,

getting all wet and all that sort of thing.

Student: Well, the best part was finding the result because yeah,

because I really wanted to find out why which gender had better memory.


This clip demonstrates that some students really want to find out the results of their investigation whereas others enjoy active learning.
