The reason we identify background knowledge in our model of the Scientific Method is so we can stimulate our brain and prepare it to accept new knowledge. It is important to think about things we know so we can connect them to things we want to learn.
Today I want you to identify what you have learned so far about floating and sinking. Look back to the past experiments and demonstrations including the testing of objects to see if they floated and your experiences with the clay boats. What have you learned so far about floating and sinking? I would like you to identify five things you have learned. Use correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling in complete sentences.
