Investigating Phenomena: How Can You Make Fake Snow?
Phenomena-driven science! Phenomena are observable, naturally occurring events that are everywhere and spark student questions and investigations. Ask students to observe the DCI-linked phenomenon in the video and complete the attached student sheet prior to remote learning discussions.
Observations: Carefully watch the snow polymer video. Gather all the evidence you can from the video, and write down everything you observe.
Generate Questions: Why does adding water make the white powder grow or multiply? Where does all the water go? How much water can the white powder hold? How big can the crystal get?
Final Explanation: Use a written explanation, graphic, or flow chart to present your final explanation for snow polymer.
