  1. These questions are very similar to the real test. Use this as a Study Guide!!!! Kansas State Science Assessment Review Game Choose your answer first. If you get it correct, draw a star by the question. If you get it wrong, make the correction!

  2. I. History and Nature of Science • Galileo Galilei is famous for • Heliocentric Theory: everything including Earth revolves around the Sun. • Discovered radium and polonium • Father of Genetics—discovered that people inherited traits through genes on DNA • Germ Theory – that microorganisms (bacteria/germs) cause people to get diseases

  3. I. History and Nature of Science • Galileo Galilei is famous for • Heliocentric Theory: everything including Earth revolves around the Sun.

  4. I. History and Nature of Science • Charles Darwin is famous for • Theory of Relativity • Theory of Evolution by natural selection • Used the telescope to study stars and planets • Theory of Continental Drift: the idea that continents move around the surface of the Earth

  12. I. History and Nature of Science 6. The ancient Greeks thought that • the Earth was flat. • matter was made from atoms • germs cause diseases • an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

  13. I. History and Nature of Science 6. The ancient Greeks thought that B. matter was made from atoms (and they were right!)

  14. I. History and Nature of Science 7. Scientists are • old because it takes many years to understand science. • men and women from all over the world and from many different cultures. • only men because some countries do not allow girls and women to go to school. • not able to communicate with each other because they speak different languages.

  15. I. History and Nature of Science 7. Scientists are B. men and women from all over the world and from many different cultures.

  16. I. History and Nature of Science 8. Scientific understand of the natural world usually progresses (happens) • very quickly, because technology changes very quickly. • very quickly, because there are so many scientists working on the same idea. • in small steps, as old theories are added to and modified. • in small steps, as theories change almost daily.

  17. I. History and Nature of Science 8. Scientific understand of the natural world usually progresses (happens) C. in small steps, as old theories are added to and modified.

  18. II. Inquiry 9. A student designed an investigation to answer a question. The steps the student followed during the investigation are listed below.  Step 1. Measure the mass of ten of the same type of plant seeds. Step 2. Plant each seed in a pot of soil and place each pot in a sunny window. Step 3. Give each plant the same amount of water each week. Step 4. Measure the mass of each plant at the end of each week for the next two months.

  19. II. Inquiry 9. Which questions was this investigation most likely designed to answer? • Which type of seeds grow the fastest? • How long does it take a plant to flower? • What is the average rate of plant growth? • Do plants grow better in sunlight or shade?

  20. II. Inquiry 9. Which questions was this investigation most likely designed to answer? C. What is the average rate of plant growth?
