What is a scientific method?


the traditional steps of a
scientific investigation are: 1.
Asking a question and
researching what is already
known about it
(purpose/research) 2. Making
a new prediction (hypothesis)
3. Planning and investigation
(materials/procedures) 4.
Collecting and recording data
(experimenting) 5. Analyzing
and synthesizing the data
(graphing) 6. Explaining the
results (drawing conclusions)
and 7. Sharing the results
(communicating with other
scientists)

Do all science investigations


follow the exact steps of the
scientific method? not really modern scientists find the
traditional method too linear
and frequently back-track
forming new predictions and
tests before gathering the
data they need to confirm
their results. (But scientists
still emphasize the need for
precise, accurate empirical
evidence and replication.)

What is a mixture? two or

How can a mixture be
separated? each substance in
a mixture keeps its own
physical and chemical
properties, so their
properties can be used to
separate the mixture
relatively easily back into
each substance by sifting
larger substances from
smaller ones, filtering solid
substances from liquid ones,
separating iron substances
from non-magnetic
substances using a magnet,
by dissolving a substance in
water then evaporating the

substance move faster,


increasing the temperature
until the matter physically
changes from one state
(phase) of matter to another
(i.e., solid to liquid, liquid to
gas). Because most
substances can exist in all
three states of matter, adding
heat melts solids into liquid
and liquids boil into gas If
the original physical and
chemical properties stay the
same, only a physical change
has occurred.

How can heating a substance


change it chemically?
Sometimes adding heat to
one or more substances will
change them into a
something new with different

properties from the original
substances. This type of

What are some common


forms of energy? light - a
form of energy that travels in
long and very short waves;
some waves (long) are visible
to humans and others (short)
are not visible. Common
sources of light energy
include a candle, light bulb,
fire, and the Sun. No matter
what the source, light always
travels in a straight line (ray)
in all directions from the
source. Many sources of
visible light also include heat
(thermal energy) see
SC.5.P.9.1. Sound is a form of
wave energy produced by
vibrating objects. Sound
waves need a medium
(matter) to travel through.
Larger vibrations cause loud
sound, smaller vibrations
cause soft sounds. The type

from one place to another.
Static electricity is the buildup of electric charges on an
object, i.e. a balloon near
your hair, lightning. Chemical
energy is the energy stored
in matter, i.e. a wood fire
making heat, burning candle
making light. Mechanical
energy is the energy of
moving objects and

How can energy produce


motion? Different forms of
energy can produce forces
(vibrations, flowing particles,
build-up of charges) that
cause pushes and pulls and
motion, i.e. magnets attract
iron and repel other magnets,
a vibrating tuning fork
splashes water, a comb
attracts pieces of paper, etc.

How can energy create


change? Different forms of
energy such as heat, light,
chemical and mechanical can
create chemical and physical
changes (camp fire - wood to
heat to light, burning candle wax to heat to light, glow
sticks - chemical to heat to
light, machines - gas to heat
to motion).

Why do most objects fall to


the ground? Gravity is an
invisible force created by the
Earth's mass. Because the
Earth is more massive than
most other objects, they are
pulled toward Earth (one
exception might be a 'helium
balloon' - helium gas has less
mass than air, a mixture of
nitrogen & oxygen gases, so
the air pushes the helium
balloon up, away from Earth).

in pairs, opposite in direction
to each other. If one force is

other force acting on an

the direction of the greater
force. The greater the force,
the faster the the object will

Why can some objects be


moved easily while others are
harder to move? For one
force to move, change the
speed or direction of an
object, it has to be greater
than the mass (inertia) of
that object as well as any
other force(s) acting on the
object. The more massive the
object, the more force is
needed to move it.

What causes an object to


stop? Remember forces
usually act in pairs, opposite
direction to each other. If the
forces acting on an object are
balanced (equal in strength)
then the resulting 'net force'
on the object is zero, and the
object will stop moving and
stay at rest.

Mars. They are "terrestrial"

further away from the Sun.

forms their gaseous
atmospheres. Evidence also

What conditions affect air
pressure? 1) Water vapor - air
that is more moist has a

has a higher air pressure. 2)
Air temperature - as air gets
warmer, the air pressure goes
down; as air gets colder the
air pressure goes up. 3)
Altitude - air at higher
altitudes is thinner and more
spread out, so as the altitude
gets higher, the air pressure
goes down.

because Earth's surface is


heated unevenly (the land
heats up faster, water
slower). The wind's speed is
measured using an
anemometer (the wind
pushes against cups spinning
the anemometer around; the
faster the wind is blowing the
faster it spins). The wind
pushes cold and hot air
masses together causing
storm fronts (changes in the
weather).
How is wind direction shown
and what does it tell us about
the weather? The wind's
direction is shown by a wind
vane. Arrows point to the
direction the wind is coming
from, i.e. an arrow pointing
north means the wind is
moving from the north to the
south. Wind direction tells us

zones? Earth's tilt on its axis


is mainly responsible for the
climate zones, i.e. in
December the North Pole is
tilted away from the Sun.
What else can affect the
weather in different climate
zones? The available sunlight
at different latitudes isn't the
only thing that affects the
weather in different climate
zones. Elevation and bodies
of water can also influence
the weather within these
regions. Because elevation
affects the air pressure, it
changes the amount of
moisture the air can hold and
depending on the
temperature can change the
amount of local precipitation.
Likewise any local body of
water can change the amount
of moisture that can be
recycled (evaporation,

How are vertebrate animals


classified? Vertebrate animals

classified by scientists into
five groups: amphibians, fish,
reptiles, birds and mammals.
Each group has its own

passed by genes (DNA
segments) from parent to

observable (dominant),
others are not (recessive).
What is a behavior? An
activity or action that
generally helps an organism
survive in its environment.
Many behaviors are learned
from experience over a
lifetime; others are innate
(inborn, or coded for in the
genes) like animal survival
instincts.
How can traits help
organisms survive? Traits
determine an organisms body
type and structures, i.e.
scales or fur, hooves or claws,
legs or fins, teeth or beak,

Key Questions

Why do organisms adapt?


Organisms need to adapt
(change) to their
environment to compete for
food, water, shelter and living
space and then reproduce
offspring in order to survive.
What is natural selection?
Natural selection is the
process by which organisms
change over many
generations and those best
suited to their environment
survive to pass their traits
and behaviors on to the next
generation of offspring.
What is extinction?
Extinction is when every
individual members of a
species (same kind of
organism) is dead.
Extinctions occur when living
things cannot adapt to

What are limiting factors?


For any population (group of
similar organisms) to survive,
there must be enough air,
food, water, and living space
for them to grow and
reproduce. These basic
resources are called 'limiting
factors' because their
availability limits how many
organisms can live in an
ecosystem.
