Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Super Bowl Science....Which ice cube is best? - Section 5: Conclusions


I struggled with the correct wording to put on the conclusion page.  I knew initially what I wanted the children to investigate....which cube would remain frozen the longest.  Ultimately, it was really challenging to do.  

The lesson was really fun, engaging, provided more practice to investigate thermometers, 2-PS1-4, but what we really discovered was there was not a significant difference in the two types of ice cubes and I did not plan for that.  The next time I teach this lesson, I will rework the conclusion page to have the wording include the possibility of 'no difference' between the cubes.
