Indirect Observation

Students observe obscertainers through indirect observations and make hypotheses about the internal wall structures of the containers. In this indirect observation lesson plan, students make observations of 4 obscertainers with a steel ball inside and predict the wall structures. They draw their predictions of what each container looks like inside. A connection is made between this activity and the structure of atoms and molecules which are too small to be seen.

Lesson Planet has become an incredible asset to my teaching. The lessons I have found are well thought out, simple to follow and full of some very creative ideas. I refer to this website quite often and will continue to do so.
