Essential Learning Event 3

Students construct models and causal explanations of phenomenon using evidence and reasoning.

Once students have gathered evidence through observation and investigation, students develop models and construct initial explanations. They capitalize on various texts, media, and discussions to obtain scientific ideas and concepts to help explain the phenomenon, as well as discover additional evidence that might be used in their own evidence-based explanation. In engineering, students undertake a design project to construct and/or implement a solution that meets specified design criteria and constraints.
