Summary:Phenomena is only as effective as the unit it is embedded within. The questions that students raise should be directly connected with the core ideas that you want the students to engage with using the science and engineering practices. For example, we all live seeing a volcano model explode -- but this does nothing to connect students with the real world phenomena that helps us to understand the natural and geologic mechanisms that cause the formation of landforms due to volcanic activity.
