Description:

How are models used to improve our understanding of systems?

 

Students will explore black boxes and create a model showing what they believe the inside looks like without opening the box, ultimately showing how the system works. Their current model will be based on collaboration with peers. 

Students will be able to:

Make observations using a variety of senses

Create conceptual models based on evidence

Communicate models based on discussion and scientific drawings

Build physical models to compare to conceptual models

Modify and revise models based on additional evidence

DO! Find 3 examples of black boxes before class tomorrow. List and explain why they are blabk boxes in your Google Docs science notebook.

There are many real word black boxes that cannot be observed directly. Models are used to explain the system and how something works!
