Disclaimer: This session will be recorded for learning purposes. Learning purposes
include: a lesson review for students who are absent, students who want to review
for a test, etc.
While youre waiting write an idea of
something you would like to
investigate more in science in the

The mission of the Georgia Cyber Academy is to provide an
exemplary educational experience to students in a unique and
individualized setting.
Moment of Reflection
Georgia Cyber Academy
encourages, at the start
of each day, all students,
teachers, and
administrators to
engage in a brief period

one minute.The
moment of quiet
reflection is not
intended to be and shall

What will be learning and working
on this week?
History in Science:
What do you think are some crazy
ideas that people believed at one
time, but scientist investigated and
proved to be incorrect?
An easy way to remember:
Pizza- Problem (state the Problem)
Is- Information (collect Information)
Hot- Hypothesis (form a Hypothesis)
Especially- Experiment or procedure
Double- Data (collect, record and analyze
Cheese- Conclusion (form a Conclusion)

Pizza is hot especially double cheese!

Vocabulary :
Model: a physical object that looks much like the
real thing for example, a model of a human brain.
Scientists use modes so they can picture the parts
of something and see how those parts fit together.

Simulation : a process that lets you do or

experience something that is like something that
occurs in nature. For instance, a brain simulator is
a computer program made up of images of the
brain. It allows surgeons to practice doing
complicated surgeries on the brain like a video

Learning Target:

1. What are the steps of the scientific

The steps are: state the problem, gather
information, form a hypothesis, conduct the
experiment, record and analyze data, draw a
conclusion, but can be repeated as needed.
2. Why do scientists follow these steps?
The scientific method is a way to ask and answer
scientific questions by making observations and
doing experiments. Scientists use this method to
modify theories or to discard them.
