We had a really honest conversation as a class to discuss the many challenges that remote learning puts in place. But one area that especially hit home is recognizing that the Internet is right at our fingertips opening another tab and searching for our answers. We're trying hard as a class to resist doing so and doing the work of real scientists, and that is that the answers aren't always available to us. That's the work of science, right?
So we still committed ourselves to developing an Investigation Ideas chart, and look at what the 6th grade came up with!!!
In the interim, we brainstormed materials we could use for our model, and between flashlights, tape/glue, small things for the men (mini-figures, candles, paper clips, etc), Amazon boxes, and cereal boxes, we're feeling pretty good about making our models! We're even thinking how a model WITHOUT the one-way mirror film might be helpful, too!
