Teacher 3

I selected the Kindergarten standard K-PS2-1 which is plan and conduct an investigation to compare the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object.

The SEP for this is planning and carrying out investigations. The video I watched explained that scientist use investigations to answer questions and engineers use them to test designs.

The DCI for this is force and motion. The video discussed the importance of teaching students in lower grades about pushes and pulls by using concrete examples, such as the video game Angry Birds.

The CCC is cause and effect – mechanism and explanation. This is about helping students identify the cause and effect by viewing the relationships between things at work.
