NGSS: Practice: Constructing Explanations

Explain This!


Observe: Look closely at the photo. What do you notice about it? What details stand out to you?

Think: What do you already know that might help explain an element of the photo?

Explain: What do you think is going on in the photo, and why? How do your observations support your claim?

Discuss: Compare explanations with your classmates. How are your ideas similar and different? What new ideas did you get?

Wonder: What questions do you still have? Record them on a separate piece of paper. You can research them later!
