The third stage of learning is knowledge. Knowledge comes from applying the information you have gleaned to your work or your life. Until you apply that information, you cannot say that you really know it. For example, I like to cook. I have watched many cooking shows on television, and they provide a lot of data on recipes, ingredients, and cooking methods. Do I remember it all? No - I filter all that data for what I like to eat - those recipes that I would like to try become information for me - information that is relevant to my tastes in food and purposeful in that I want to try to make a particular recipe myself. But it is only when I actually try the recipe and cook something that I can say that I know how to make that dish.
For example, in an experiment where the growth of Venus flytraps are studied, the process can be simplified by confining the variables to just a few number, the hypothesis to just one, and the data collection period to just a few days time. Thus, only the variable of types of feed is changed, only one hypothesis is made in that the one fed the crickets will grow the fastest because of the protein content, and the period is limited to just 2 weeks instead of 3 weeks. With 5th grade science fair projects, you can encourage your child to seek more answers to his questions simply because the materials and equipment used are easy to use and the processes adopted are easy to follow.
