Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Freezing - Section 4: Elaborate

 

The experience of using the online simulation allows students to come to an understanding of the motion of the molecules using images.  In the sample student response, the student understands the difference between water and ice (liquid and solid) and the motion of the molecules within each. Because students are leading their own investigation, they tend to have a better understanding of the concept, as well.
