Constructing Explanations and Designing Solutions
Cause and Effect
- The problem.
- The design solution.
- What way the design solution uses the given scientific information about the warming effect of the Sun on Earth's surface.
Students are able to:
- Use tools and materials provided to design and build a device that reduces the effects of sunlight.
Students understand that:
- Structures can reduce the effects of sunlight on Earth's surface.
- Whether or not a device meets expectations in terms of cause (device reduces effects of sunlight) and effect (less warming).
