After creating our initial models predicting what would happen to the raccoon, students had a chance to discuss what they did alongside others in a breakout room! We compiled all our ideas to agree on the following:
We realized we had LOTS of differences between our models, and we needed ways to figure out what's going on with the raccoon over time. It's always incredible to ask students for their investigation ideas, because they are truly thinking like scientists here!
Between the two fifth grade classes, we had lots of great ideas! We decided finding a dead animal would be the best way to find what happens to a dead animal!
