Being a scientist
This week I want you to think like a scientist and look for patterns or a link between measurements.
The question I want you to think about is: Do people with bigger feet need larger gloves?
How will we find out the answer? What do we need to do first?
1.Think of the people in your family you could use.
2. Ask if you can measure their feet and hands. Measure the hand from the wrist to the end of the longest finger. You could use a ruler to measure and read and record the numbers. Or you could use a toy car, or bricks, but make sure they are exactly the same size. Write dow the answer.
3. Look at the measurements and see if you can see if the answer to the question, Do people with bigger feet needs larger gloves? is ‘yes’ or ‘no’ by noticing whether the people with the biggest feet, also have the largest hands.
That means you can see a pattern and have found the answer by being just like a scientist.
Well done! Can you think of any other questions you can find the answer to?
