17 Planning and Carrying Out Investigations

18 Constructing Explanations Scientific Explanation = CLAIM + EVIDENCE + REASONING What is the question? Developing a Scientific Explanation Tool (DSET) Components of a scientific explanation Claim What is the answer to your question? Evidence What is the raw data that supports a particular claim? Scientific Reasoning What are the scientific principle(s) that form a logical argument about the relationship between the claim and evidence? Scientific Explanation = Claim + Evidence + Scientific Reasoning My claim is (fill in with above claim) because (evidence and scientific reasoning) Our claim is that.green does not help plants grow the tallest (Evidence) In 2 of the 4 trials green light grew the shortest sunflowers. In the other 2 trials green was among the shortest The reason for this is that green light gets reflected back and not absorbed by the plant chlorophyll does not use the green light for photosynthesis
