Experiment 1 Can You See

2 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 Introduction Scientists use tools to study the world around them. In this experiment you will use a magnifying glass as a basic

Introduction Experiment 1 Can You See 3 II. Observe It Observe a butterfly wing or other bugs wing by looking at it carefully with your eyes. Record what you see, including details. VVVVVVVV

4 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 Now take the magnifying glass and observe the butterfly or bugs wing. Record what you see and include any new details.

Introduction Experiment 1 Can You See 5 III. What Did You Discover How much detail were you able to observe with your eyes alone With your eyes alone, were you able to see colors, lines, texture

6 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 IV. Why Simple instruments and tools like magnifying glasses help our eyes see details that we cant otherwise see. A magnifying

Introduction Experiment 1 Can You See 7 Through the Microscope VVVVVVVV

Experiment 13 Keep the Train on Its Tracks

114 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 Introduction This experiment is an exploration of how train wheels use rotational motion. I. Think About It How does a train

Physics Experiment 13 Keep the Train on Its Tracks 115 II. Observe It Take a cylinder that is 1013 centimeters 45 inches long and roll it on the ground. Note how far the cylinder rolls and whether

116 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 Take a plastic cup that has a mouth that is wider than the base. Roll it on the ground. Note how the plastic cup moves. Try t

Physics Experiment 13 Keep the Train on Its Tracks 117 Take two long poles and tape them to the ground with about 5 centimeters 2 inches between them. Roll the cylinder on the poles and observe h

118 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 Take two plastic cups and tape them together, endtoend at the widest part mouth. Roll the taped plastic cups on the two pole

Physics Experiment 13 Keep the Train on Its Tracks 119 III. What Did You Discover How far did the cylinder roll on the ground Did the cylinder travel in a straight line Why or why not PHYSICS

120 Exploring the Building Blocks of Science Laboratory Notebook Book 2 How far did the cylinder travel on the taped poles Was it easy for the cylinder to stay on the poles Why or why not PHYS

Physics Experiment 13 Keep the Train on Its Tracks 121 IV. Why If you look carefully at a wheel on a train, you can see that it is slightly tapered, meaning that the outside of the wheel is smaller
