Define: Evidence | Mental Model | Distinction | Systems | Relationship | Perspective
Ask students to define these terms in their science notebook. Then ask them to discuss the definitions in pairs or small groups. As a whole class, come to a consensus and define each term on a separate chart paper post-it. Post each term in the room. Changes can be made as thinking and understanding of the terms change.
Watch in class -DSRP-Four Simple Rules of Systems Thinking, 11:55 – www.thinkwater.us, then consider revising terms in number one. See Teacher’s Notes for more background.
