### Now What?

1. 1. HOW TO WRITE A SCIENTIFIC EXPLANATION<br />http://www.slideshare.net/tarman59/now-what-3653200<br />
2. 2. NOW WHAT?<br />YOU HAVE ASKED SOME GREAT QUESTIONS!<br />YOU HAVE FOUND ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS!<br />YOU HAVE RECORDED YOUR DATA!<br />NOW YOU NEED TO STAKE A CLAIM!<br />
3. 3. WHAT IS A CLAIM?<br />THE CLAIM IS THE ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION.<br />WHAT DID YOU DISCOVER?<br />
4. 4. IS THAT IT?<br />YES AND NO.<br />YES, THE CLAIM IS WHAT YOU DISCOVERED, BUT NO, THAT IS NOT IT.<br />YOU MUST SUPPORT YOUR CLAIM WITH EVIDENCE!<br />
5. 5. WHAT EVIDENCE?<br />WHAT YOU DID.<br />WHAT INVESTIGATIONS YOU PERFORMED AND THEIR RESULTS.<br />INFORMATION THAT YOU LEARNED FROM THE TEXTBOOK, INTERNET, OR OTHER SOURCES.<br />
6. 6. THAT HAS TO BE IT!<br />NOPE!<br />NOW YOU NEED TO EXPLAIN YOUR REASONING!<br />HOW DOES YOUR EVIDENCE PROVE YOUR CLAIM?<br />WHAT ARE YOUR IDEAS NOW THAT YOU HAVE RESEARCHED YOUR QUESTION?<br /> TIE IT ALL TOGETHER!<br />
7. 7. HOW DO I ALL OF THAT?<br />1. CREATE A WORDLE FOR YOUR QUESTION.<br />INCLUDE YOUR ACTUAL QUESTION.<br />INCLUDE YOUR CLAIM.<br />INCLUDE DESCRIPTIVE WORDS.<br />INCLUDE VOCABULARY WORDS.<br />
8. 8. SHARE!<br />YOUR CLASSMATES AND I WANT TO KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED!<br />2. POST YOUR QUESTION, CLAIM, EVIDENCE, REASONING, AND WORDLE TO OUR CLASSROOM WIKI.<br /> WRITE THE EXPLANATION SO OTHERS CAN UNDERSTAND IT.<br /> USE SCIENTIFIC LANGUAGE.<br />3. READ YOUR CLASSMATES POSTINGS.<br />
9. 9. DEMONSTRATION<br />4. PREPARE A DEMONSTRATION FOR THE CLASS!<br /> SHOW US WHAT YOU HAVE LEARNED!<br /> PRACTICE WITH YOUR GROUP. <br /> PLAN WHAT EACH GROUP MEMBER IS GOING TO SAY AND DO!<br />
10. 10. IS THAT IT??<br />IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE!<br />ONCE YOU HAVE COMPLETED YOUR PRESENTATION TO THE CLASS, DO YOU HAVE MORE QUESTIONS? <br />DID SOME THE OTHER DEMONSTRATIONS MAKE YOU WANT TO TRY SOMETHING ELSE?<br />DO IT!<br />(HERE WE GO AGAIN!)<br />
