Summary:In this activity, students will investigate the complexities of snowpack formation by creating a model. This model simulates only a few of the variables that scientists consider when predicting avalanches.
Earth Science Big Ideas:Big Idea 1
NGSS Discplinary Core Ideas:ESS2.A; ESS3.B
NGSS Performance Expectations:4-ESS2-1; 4-ESS3-2; HS-ESS3-1; MS-ESS2-2; MS-ESS3-2
NGSS Science and Engineering Practices:Analyzing and interpreting data; Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering); Planning and carrying out investigations
NGSS Crosscutting Concepts:Cause and effect: Mechanism and explanation; Patterns; Scale, proportion, and quantity
