KW Predicts and Observes Preferences of Bess Bugs

KW are learning about Living and Nonliving things.  Students made 4 predictions about the Bess Bug preferences (Light/Dark, Wet/Dry, Apple/Wood, Sand/Soil).  Then they observed the bugs as they made a move to their prefered chamber and recorded our observations. At the end, students wrote a conclusion.  They learned that predictions don’t always match the results. It doesn’t mean they were wrong, it means they are learning and being authentic scientists!
