Comments about Including the Science and Engineering Practice
The lesson prompts students to make sense of the data they collect, by investigating models and simulations. They are then asked to create their own model to explain another example of conduction, based on their experiences with their own data collection and some online animations and a simulation. The lesson does not include written texts for student use, so they will be integrating their own data with the molecular animations and simulation provided. If written text is desired, a teacher could modify the provided teacher discussion outline into a written-for-students informational text.
