Using PhET Simulation Observations and Data to Find Patterns and Make Evidence-based Arguments About Density (Day 2)

Unit 6: Density
Lesson 6 of 8

Objective: SWBAT: Analyze the results from each simulation to find patterns and develop evidence-based arguments about the factors that explain why some objects float, while others sink.

Big Idea: Giving students time to analyze data, develop arguments, listen to others' arguments can lead to deeper understanding. Using evidence to support claims is a crucial part of science and is used here to deepen students' understanding of density.
