After reading the section on Physical Science from the Science Conceptual Framework, what were some new learnings, something that you may have already known, or some questions you still have? After reading this section it got me thinking more about nuclear interactions and how those forces can affect an object. In the past I mostly thought in terms of electromagnetic forces and gravitational forces.
What preconceptions do you anticipate your students will have about topics found in this standard? Forces can be confusing for them since they are often describing things they can see.
What are some ways you plan on addressing these preconceptions? I plan to work through students' preconceptions by showing them a phenomena and have them question why or how this happens. Then they will continue on with arguments based on evidence to prove their thinking.
