Reflection: Debate Cool Changes - Section 4: Wrap Up


This was a really interesting lesson. This lesson was taught after the area received about four inches of snow. The snow was a factor in the students' predictions.  Students made their predictions and began to debate which cup would freeze the fastest. Students shared their ideas and reasoning for their predictions. It was very interesting to see how the different elements effected the water in the cups. 

Identifying the different variables that could have changed the outcome turned out to be part of the student's arguments. This was a very fun lesson.
