Thank you for participating in the online workshop "Using the Science Lab for Exploration Before Explaining." You will be using the features on this Google site to participate in the interactive components of the workshop. Please follow along and use the various tools as they are discussed.
Plan an Investigation
Let's all look at the following question: "Does the temperature of the liquid matter?" In your group, plan an investigation that could answer this question. What variable(s) would you control? What variable(s) would you measure?
The bulbs of three thermometers are wrapped in paper towels. One is dipped in water and removed (Thermometer A), another is dipped in isopropyl alcohol and removed (Thermometer B), and the third is dipped in nothing (Thermometer C). The thermometers all read the same room-temperature value (22 degrees Celsius) before they are dipped and removed.
Make a prediction for the temperature reading of each thermometer after about 10 minutes. Answer the short multiple choice question below based on your prediction.
