About Irene Taylor
The activities included in this ebook are appropriate for students in grades 4-6. They will provide experiences in working with data and making predictions, which can be correlated to the areas of Science and Mathematics. These activities may be done in sequence to explore many aspects of making predictions, or may be done separately to illustrate one aspect of the data collection and prediction process.
Every scientist conducts experiments and every experiment provides a piece of information or knowledge. Whether the scientist is a chemist who is experimenting with how different amounts of the same chemicals react; an economist who observes the effect of inflation on employment; or a meteorologist who researches the likelihood of tornadoes affecting certain areas, each advances his/her efforts by carefully recording and displaying the observations that are made. In the end, the scientist is able to better understand the world in which we live.
