In this fun and challenging assignment, students will create a superhero based on an independent variable, dependent variable, or controlled variable (constant). Students will use the definitions and what they know about variables to determine their
This stand alone reading passage focuses on the Scientific Method. The passage specifically focuses on the hypothesis, independent variables, dependent variables, control variables, material lists, observations, and data. After the passage, there are seven multiple choice questions and one constructed response question.
Constants (Controlled Variables) in Experiments: A Scientific Method Activity
This fun activity shows students why constants (controlled variables) are necessary for the reliability, fairness, and accuracy of experiments. It involves students in the process of creating an experiment almost entirely without constants so they can more easily identify constants and fix flawed experiments in the future.
