Unit: Hypothesis Topic: Sound
Goal(s): TLW know how to form a hypothesis and understand what it is.
TLW explore and investigate in order to form conclusion based on evidence.

Objective(s):
TLW form at least one complete sentence giving their hypothesis.
TLW conduct an investigation, and form a correct conclusion based on their found evidence

TEKS: 1.2 B

Teaching/ Learning Procedures:


 Before class starts teacher needs to have a glass filled with water that makes me sound of
the note C. Gather students around the glass of water and show them how to make the
noise.
 Put students into groups of 4 and give students the exact same glass that the teacher used
to make the sound, and have them try to make the same note as the teacher.
 After groups have successfully made at least close to the correct note, give students
supplies for their experiment. Ask students if they think the skinny glass will make a
higher, or lower pitch? Ask them if they think the amount of water you put in the middle
sized glass effects the pitch?
 Have students write down their hypothesis into their science journals. Also have them
write down a summary of the experiment they will be doing to get a conclusion.
 Then have students conduct their experiment, and write down their conclusion.

Formative Check (ongoing or specific): Walk around the room as students are conducting their
experiments. Make sure they are using equipment properly, and forming good hypothesis.

Reteach (alternative used as needed): If students need further guidance when it comes to
hypothesis, in a small group ask students to think of 5 different science experiments, and practice
making hypothesis for those experiments, and then research online to see f they were correct.

Closure: Have students present their findings in front of the class.

Modifications/Notes:
SPED/ELL: Repeat instructions in chunk and provide more examples/ model. If needed, pull
students in small group and work with them as they conduct the experiments.
SPED/ELL: Provide students with sentence stems in order to make their hypothesis.
