Here at EdPlace we're committed to helping you get better and better at all sorts of things and this time it's .... Planning your Scientific Investigations!
When there's something new to try, whether it's a new computer game or sporting activity we often want to get stuck in right away...
But then, you get stuck!
This happens when we haven't thought through what it is we want to find out and how we're going to do it.
Planning is vital! Not only does it save lots of wasted time but we'll have a much better chance at ending up with a reliable answer.
Remember, an investigation or experiment is always trying to answer a question.
If you don't know what the question is, you definitely shouldn't think about starting!
So, use this worksheet to help you on your journey to becoming an ace investigator!
So, what's going on......?

They wondered why there was a difference and decided to plan an investigation to try to find out the reason that only one of the apple cores had turned brown.
So, walk along the planning journey with Erin and Kirsty and let's see where it takes you....
