Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Reconstructing Dinosaur Skeletons (Day 3 of 3) - Section 4: Sharing Our New Models And Supporting Our Changes With Evidence

 

This activity was great for showing my students a way to use CER to improve changes to a scientific model (their dinosaur models).  Students benefited from the structured approach of using prior knowledge, researching dinosaur skeletons and then refining their skeletons based on evidence.

Reconstructing Dinosaur Skeletons (Day 3 of 3)

Unit 1: NGSS Science and Engineering Practices and the Nature of Science
Lesson 10 of 11

Objective: SWBAT: share, collect and use evidence to develop a new model that explains how their dinosaur may have looked

Big Idea: Scientists are always sharing their findings with the scientific community. This lesson gives students the opportunity to mimic these practices in class, so that they can recreate their initial models that are based on new evidence.
