02/10/2021 TLC-Science Make Them Think: Argumentation in Elementary School Science - When using the processes of scientific inquiry, scientists make claims based on observable evidence, and must justify their evidence as relevant to the claims. Students can follow the same scientific processes while investigating elementary science topics like force and motion or animal adaptations. This hands-on workshop will give teachers strategies for student inquiry and student assessment. We will use argumentation to teach the following topics: Physical Properties (TEKS: 4.5A, 5.5A); Thermal Energy (TEKS: 4.6A, 4.6B, 5.5A, 5.6A); Solubility (TEKS: 4.5A, 4.5C, 5.5A, 5.5B, 5.5C); Force and Motion (TEKS: 4.6D, 5.6D); Structure and Function of Living Things (TEKS: 4.10A, 5.10A, 5.10B); Non-living Components of the Environment (TEKS: 5.9A, 5.9C).
