important components of scientific methods are making observations
and finding information. Your initial observations in the
Shapes of Nature project involved viewing a movie and learning
the concepts of the different shapes. You then went outside
into the natural world and found examples of each shape. You
made further shape observations at the Long Beach Aquarium.
Then you searched the Internet to find examples and explanations
for one specific shape. Describe how the the shape observations
you made and the search process on the Internet relate to
component of scientific methods is cooperation and collaboration
with colleagues. In the Shapes of Nature project you cooperated
and collaborated with each other in finding, describing, and
explaining shapes and in finding, selecting, copying, and
inserting visual and verbal information in your presentations.
You also shared information and experience in putting together
the presentations. Based on your cooperation and collaboration
experiences in preparing your Shape of Nature presentation,
describe how and why cooperation and collaboration are important
in the scientific process.
