Scientific Inquiry Performance Task

Brief Overview of Task:

Students will use the property of paper to absorb liquids and to transmit the liquid along a strip at different rates depending on the liquid, the type of paper, and other variables. For young students the teacher will set up the experiments with student activity somewhat limited. For older students the control of the experiments is transferred to the students.
