NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.3

  Finish Length Practice


 Envelope Investigation-1 TSWBAT

1. Discuss the difference between an observation and an inference and why scientists make them in order to study the history of the Earth

2. Work in groups to observe an envelope & trace the history of an envelope by making inferences based on observations

3.Go over Length Practice

 NJCCCS 5.1  & 5.8

9. Envelope Investigation/ Observation or Inference  




Observation or Inference  : Write 2 examples of observations and 2 examples of inferences in science journal

For example: "I observed that the street was wet."  "I can infer that the street was wet because the snow melted"
