Snakes and the Scientific Method

from Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Program image

After practicing observational skills of reptiles such as snakes,
students will use the scientific method as they attempt to discover one of
the snake’s natural habitats. We’ll perform an experiment, learn how to
use evidence to solve problems and answer questions, and even test our
new knowledge with a snake in a mystery habitat!

Standards Alignment

National Standards

2-LS4-1: Make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.

K-2-ETS1-2: Develop a simple sketch, drawing, or physical model to illustrate how the shape of an object helps it function as needed to solve a given problem.

K-2-ETS1-3: Analyze data from tests of two objects designed to solve the same problem to compare the strengths and weaknesses of how each performs

3-LS4-3: Construct an argument with evidence that in a particular habitat some organisms can survive well, some survive less well, and some cannot survive at all.

3-LS4-4: Make a claim about the merit of a solution to a problem caused when the environment changes and the types of plants and animals that live there may change.

3-LS3-1: Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence that plants and animals have traits inherited from parents and that variation of these traits exists in a group of similar organisms.

3-LS3-2: Use evidence to support the explanation that traits can be influenced by the environment.

3-LS4-2: Use evidence to construct an explanation for how the variations in characteristics among individuals of the same species may provide advantages in surviving, finding mates, and reproducing.

4-LS1-1: Construct an argument that plants and animals have internal and external structures that function to support survival, growth, behavior, and reproduction.

4-LS1-2: Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.

5-LS2-1: Develop a model to describe the movement of matter among plants, animals, decomposers, and the environment.

3-5-ETS1-2: Generate and compare multiple possible solutions to a problem based on how well each is likely to meet the criteria and constraints of the problem.
