Today students created models in the computer to represent the two possible phase changes for the lake on Titan.
We were then given four new pieces of evidence to work through during a card sort with our partner. This new evidence pointed us toward a conclusion about the phase change that occurred to Titan's disappearing lake. It was SUMMER on Titan and energy had been transferring into the lake for 5+ years and the methane lake phase changed into a gas.
Students were asked to complete a graphic organizer to help them clarify their thinking before completing a CER for our final claim about the lake.
