You can do your scientific Investigation independently, in pairs or in a group of 3. If you choose to work with others they must be from Room 3 and you will need to organise yourselves outside school hours to carry out the scientific investigation. 


Are you working by yourself, in pairs or in a group of 3 (name group members)?

Due week 9 (1st-5th July) 

Time to display your scientific investigation. You will need a piece/pieces of large cardboard to display all your publishing. Be creative and think about how to make your display stand out from the others.


To have a look at Room 3’s scientific investigation displays from last year.

You can start bringing in your scientific investigations anytime during week 9. All scientific investigations are due on Friday of week 9 so I can mark them straight away, as I’ll be away in week 10.  Celebration in week 10 will be students presenting their scientific investigations.
