Challenge your students to consider how science works by puzzling out solutions.

“I wonder if,” and “What about,” will be part of your students’ discourse as they think like scientists with this nature of science activity. Students use the geometric shapes to create a single model. As more data becomes available, students revise their thinking, and their models. Students will:

  • Arrange tangram pieces to represent an initial conceptual model or explanation
  • Receive new information that expands or challenges their initial model
  • Experiment with multiple solutions to include the new data 
  • Apply this iterative process to examples of classic scientific advances and theories
A perfect beginning of the school year activity to practice asking questions, working collaboratively, and designing and revising models.
