Students Comparing Scientific Models

Students in Mrs. Addy's Chemistry and Community Health classes are currently studying polar ice cap melting to see if it contributes to sea level rise. Students created an initial model to show causes of melting and what melting looks like at the particle level. Then, they shared their models with a new table to compare similarities and differences. Sharing data is an authentic part of real scientific research!
