The 11 science process skills are used in daily life by ever
Transcript of The 11 science process skills are used in daily life by ever
By: Elizabeth Godo
We will travel the waves and just skim the surface on the 11 science process skills, but you will learn a lot. These skills are used in daily life by every single person on Earth whether they know it or not. How do you use these process skills? The following presentation is how I use them in my life.
Body: Process Skills
The following are the process skills and how I used them in my life.
All of these process skills can be used in many ways. We have just skimmed the surface of these skills but I hope that you realize just how important these are in your life, and in the life of a scientist.
Inferring is when you come up with a conclusion based on what you already know. In this picture, I am inferring that my sister took my lunch based on the look on her face, the way she is facing my empty plate, the empty plate, and the crumpled up napkin in front of her. In my everyday life I use inferring to determine how my friends are feeling based on the way they act.
Observing is when you notice something. In this picture, I am observing my sister take my lunch while I am supposedly going to the bathroom. This is used in my everyday life all the time, especially when I am just around the house. I notice things that I haven't in the past. For example, I never knew that there was a fan in my parents bathroom.
Communicating is using something to talk to people. Whether it is using body language or texting, you are still communicating. In this picture, I am texting Kayla. This is something I do a lot, usually on a daily basis. I always wave at my neighbors when I get home from school.
Measuring is when you compare an object to a standard length of measurement. In this picture, I am measuring the length of my foot. I use measurement on a daily basis when I am measuring the time it takes to go to and from school, to and from my classes and when I am baking.
When you classify items, you organize them in groups by their common characteristics. In this picture, our dirty laundry is being classified by color. In my everyday life, I classify items when I am at my locker. I classify my textbooks by locker stops. When I am looking for food in the pantry, I am looking for things based on its classification.
Identifying variables is when you figure out what variables are constant, changed, or manipulated in any way, shape , or form. In this picture, my mom is trying to figure out if she has enough time to make dinner before she has to pick me up from volleyball. Time is the variable in this example. This happens a lot in my daily life, not always for me though. This happens a lot with my parents and whether they have enough time to go grocery shopping before they have to pick me or my sister up.
Constructing models is when you are assembling the parts to make an object. In this picture, constructing models would have been important because my bobble head ended up breaking when I was trying to move it. If the makers of this bobble head had constructed models they would have discovered that the head popped off of the body very easily and it could have been fixed. Instead, I am stuck with a broken bobble head. In my life, this does not happen that often but if I were to focus on constructing models, I would say that I would build a model when we go to redo our kitchen. This way, we are not messing up our kitchen before we know what it will look like.
Experimenting is when you test a procedure to discover what will happen. In this picture, I have a random jacket and a random pair of pants and I was experimenting to see if they would work well together. I do this A LOT. Everyday, I test different outfits to see if they look cute and which one I would be proud to wear to school.
Predicting is making a guess about something that is going to happen. In this picture, I am watching the Bears game and I am predicting that the Bears are going to win. I predict a lot in my daily life. When I am at school, I predict whether or not I will have homework or not. Most of the time I do have homework.
Hypothesizing is when you are making an educated guess about what is going to happen based on what you know. In this picture my dad is looking like he is going to break our front door. If my dad hits the glass with the hammer, then the glass will break because of the force and the mass of the hammer. I use hypothesizing in my everyday life when I am going to study for a test or quiz. If I study more, then I will perform better on the test because I am better prepared with the material.
Interpreting Data is when you are making an observation and collecting data, then looking for patterns or trends. This is a picture of the whether for the next five days. Interpreting data is being used because meteorologists need to be able to interpret the data they are given in order to create a weather forecast for the day and for the week ahead. In my everyday life I use Interpreting Data when I look at the weather in the morning and when I pick out my outfit for the day.
