If you're using NGSS or in any way moving away from memorizing to doing in science, this lesson is for you!
Help your student gain metaknowledge about scientific practices and modeling by introducing the purpose, benefits, and limitations of developing scientific models.
Includes a student handout that follows the presentation on:
-what is a model
-why are models used
-how to evaluate a model
Several built in higher order thinking questions, examples, and a ticket out the door will ensure your students understand what a model is and why they're used before they leave the classroom!
