During block days this week students will be participating in activity #9: Data Toss. Students will be using the scientific method while carrying out this activity. The question is : Is it easier to catch a ball with two hands or one hand? Next students had to make a hypothesis about what they thought was going to happen. Then students wrote out the steps for the experiment. When that was finished, students went outside with their partner and tested their hypothesis by catching the ball with one hand 15 times and then with two hands 15 times. They then had to record their data and explain whether is what easy, medium, or hard to catch the ball with one hand or two hands. Finally students wrote conclusions about their experiment.
