Learning to 'USE EVIDENCE'

Today we learnt about a new science capability 'Use Evidence'.

We explored a range of evidence about recycling, the process, and using plastic to create energy. We picked out and identified key information and ideas. Following this, we were given 5 thought bubbles of statements about main ideas. We then had to either agree or disagree with the statements and provide evidence from the information that supported our decision. Whilst this was difficult at first, we soon got the hang of it and then had a go at writing our own thought  bubble statements. We swapped our statements and repeated the justification process.

We then had a lengthy discussion about what were the skills that we used and learnt about during this activity that showed our 'using evidence' science capabilities. We all reflected on and wrote an explanation about the skills we had used.
