Introduction

You and your classmates have been talking about how science touches your life. Answer the questions about the video and then you can work with your classmates and teacher to think about examples of how science impacts certain parts of your life.


Science in My Life Video

  • What were some of the examples of science you saw in the video?

 

  • Were you surprised about some of the examples you saw in the video? If so, what were they?

 

  • Can you think of other things that are around because of science but weren’t mentioned in the video?

 

  • Did you see anything in this video that has made your life better? How?

Research

With your teacher’s approval, choose one example of how science impacts your life to focus on and conduct some research on that topic to address these questions:

  • What is the item you’re focusing on?

 

  • How does this item fit into your life? How or when do you or someone else use it?

 

  • How was it developed or discovered? Who was involved in that?

 

  • How does science fit into its development or discovery?




Requirements for Work

After you finish your research, use what you’ve learned to create a poster, infographic, or PowerPoint on the evolution of the product or discovery and how it impacts your lives.

  • PowerPoint Presentation: Should have at least 4 slides (product/discovery, aspects of your life it impacts, how it was developed/discovered, the role it plays in that aspect of your life), plus a title slide. Each slide should have an image and text with information about it

  • Poster/Infographic: Should have at least 4 images on it (product/discovery, aspects of your life it impacts, how it was developed/discovered, the role it plays in that aspect of your life) with captions that explain the images. Should also include a title and your names.
