Doing water science
Thinking about School Science answer Yes or No
• Have you used a thermometer before to measure how hot or cold the water is?
• Have you used a meter before to measure how salty water is?
• Have you used a turbidity tube before to measure how murky the water is?
• Have you used a meter, pH strips or a solution before to measure how acidic water is?
When you are asked a science question you can do a ‘fair test’. (First you start by deciding what you think will happen. Next you test it by changing some things and keeping other things the same. Then you observe the results). Choose one below:
I have not done a fair test and I am not confident I can do one.
I have not done a fair test but I am confident I can do one.
I have done a fair test before.
