Big Idea:Student-centered learning leads to deeper conceptual understanding. Let your students develop experiments to test the effects of temperature of molecular motion and you will see their passion and understanding unfold.
Big Idea:Just because you can't see it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. This is especially true in science when learning about gases. Students will experience various examples of air acting on matter to support that it is matter!
Big Idea:Drawing models is a great way for students to explain what they think is happening in science, but acting like molecules is so much more fun! Additionally, teachers can assess student understanding of how molecules act.
