Scientific Method- "The Big Ahah"

Students experiment with water, dropper and a coin to study the scientific method. In this scientific method lesson plan, students are in groups, each with a coin, water and a dropper. They investigate how many drops of water can fit on the coin before falling off. Students gather data, graph data, and discuss the problem they are investigating. They use the scientific method to perform the experiment and write up their steps for solving the problem.

The new resource preview feature is awesome! It is extremely easy to both find materials and align them with the Common Core Standards. I use those a lot since they are not state-specific, and my lessons must meet the needs of students from different states as well as other countries. You will help me save a lot of planning time!
