CONVECTION CURRENT LAB PROCEDURES • TURN ON HOT PLATE (HOT PLATE SHOULD NOT BE HIGHER THAN 4) • ALLOW BEAKER OF WATER TO HEAT FOR 3 MINUTES. • SPRINKLE CONFETTI PAPER INTO THE BEAKER OF WATER. • PUT TWO DROPS OF DYE INTO THE BEAKER OF WATER. • OBSERVE THE MOVEMENT OF THE CONFETTI PAPER. • DRAW THE BEAKER OF WATER AND USE ARROWS TO SHOW THE MOVEMENT OF PAPER.
C.E.R. CONCLUSION CLAIM • A statement about the solution to a problem • A response to a question • An answer to a problem EVIDENCE • Relevant data or facts that supports the claim • Observations that support the claim REASONING • Explains how the evidence is linked to the claim • Justifies why the data, facts, or observations support the claim • Includes appropriate content concepts or principles
