This is a close read science lesson where students read about and analyze an award winning student experiment that tested the effects of radiation from wi-fi routers on the growth of plants. The article is engaging and the lesson asks students to display their understanding of the experiment with text codes, graphics and text. This lesson format could be used with any article that describes a scientific experiment. A great lesson for teaching the scientific method and literacy at the same time.
I can analyze an experiment from an article.
I can identify the question investigated in an experiment.
I can identify the dependent, independent and controlled variables in an experiment.
