Basic Process Skills - Growing Gators

Here's another great buy at Dollar Tree. I'll be using these in science to teach process skills. These gators once placed in water will begin to grow at least 600% their original size. Through the years, this has been a class favorite.

Basic Scientific Process Skills include:
*Observing: Qualitative observations are observations made by using the five senses.
*Measuring: Quantitative observations are observations made by using tools to measure, weigh, etc.
*Inferring: Formulating an assumption or explanation about what was observed.
*Classifying: Grouping items by their similarities or differences.
*Predicting: Making a guess based about what will happen based on observations.
*Communicating: Describing what actually happened using words, symbols, or graphics.
