scientist vs classroom

Teacher 3
The scientist used specific vocabulary words because he had a good understanding of what the terms mean and how to apply them to explain the phenomena. The students used very generic terms to describe and explain the phenomena. This is because they do not have the scientific knowledge to relate what they are thinking using the proper terms. In my own classroom, it is important for me to provide my students with the actual terms when they have described those terms.
