Anchor Chart – Experiment Vs. Investigation – What’s the Difference?

Browse by Category

Use this anchor chart to help students understand the difference between a science EXPERIMENT and INVESTIGATION.

When I was in middle school, I had an amazing 8th grade science teacher who made the class
so engaging and fun.  Although I can remember in detail many of the activities we did, one thing really stuck with me – the difference between a science experiment and an investigation.

It’s important that when we are teaching science, not to get the terms confused since the two terms are pretty different.  In teaching third grade, I very rarely did a complete science experiment, but we did investigate many different topics.

 

 

I created this graphic to explain the differences between the two.

Hope it helps!
