This is a great simple activity when teaching about the water cycle or phase changes. This resource focuses on what causes condensation. Through a simple activity and focused reading, students write an argument to explain what is needed for condensation to form.
This comes from my “Quick and Cl-Ev-R” series. Each activity is designed for students to practice writing scientific arguments with Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning based on real world data and experiences. Each activity includes a quick hands on activity or demonstration, data collection, and corresponding reading focusing on the scientific concepts presented in the activity.
