Task

  • Create a model/diagram that describes what you believe is happening to the ping pong ball when you try to blow it out of the funnel

  • Get feedback

  • Revise model if necessary


Paper tent

  • Predict – What will happen to the tent when air is blown through its opening?

  • Observe- Try it out and make observations

  • Explain – Can we explain the tent’s behavior

  • Use this information to revise your funnel models/diagrams


Paper Strip

  • Think

  • Pair

  • Share

  • Use this information to revise your funnel models/diagrams


Blow Dryer

  • Think

  • Pair

  • Use this information to revise your funnel models/diagrams
