Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question.
Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.
This lesson is a quick overview of all the stages a scientist goes through in the scientific process. Firstly, a scientist thinks about what they already know about a topic. This leads them to ask questions about what they don't know. They will choose one question to focus on and perfect it. Next, the scientist will come up with a fair test by determining their independent variable, dependent variable, and controls. Now, they will hypothesize or predict what will happen. After this, they are ready to do the experiment making sure to carefully record methods. With the information or data they collect in the experiment, scientists then record their results perhaps by producing graphs. After this, the scientist uses their knowledge to interpret the results and form conclusions. Lastly, it is important for scientists to share their findings with the world either in an oral or written form.
Kids earn more screen time by answering fun educational questions.
Here are some example of questions about this video that kids may be asked in the 1Question app to earn screen time.
We interpret results in the...1) conclusion2) methods3) hypothesis4) research question
What do scientists do when they make a hypothesis?1) They predict what will happen.2) They design an experiment.3) They say what did happen.4) They say why something happened.
What variables do scientists need to determine.1) The independent variable, dependent variable and controls.2) Just the independent variable.3) Just the controls.4) Just the independent variable and controls.
Where might we find graphs in a scientific write up?1) The results2) The hypothesis3) The research question4) In all sections
Which of these is not a stage of the scientific process?1) handing your work in to the teacher2) sharing methods3) making conclusions4) making a hypothesis
Recreational screen time
Kids can use the screen time minutes they earned to unlock the apps selected by their parent e.g. games, social media, streaming, etc.
Out of time
When screen time minutes run out, kids are locked out and need to complete more learning in 1Question to earn more time.
