Big idea - Change 

Date the work (Time, duration) Underline because it's significant. It's important to teach the scientific practice. 

How scientists communicate. 
When we are doing things we have to communicate (talk, questioning, drawing- this drawing is a model or a representation) 

Re- present something.

Ice with air/ Ice with water/ Ice with oil 

Use senses- collect data- use our prior knowledge and draw conclusions/ make connections. 

Different angles and perspectives are important (Bird's eye view, side view) in this lesson to help students gather more data. 

Try and link other curriculum areas. Time, shape,... etc shows students purpose.
Big Idea-
