Discovering the Difference between Scientific Laws and Theories
This is an introductory lesson to Scientific Laws and Theories. At the completion of this lesson students should have a firm understanding of what constitutes a law vs what constitutes a theory, how they are different, and what they have in common. Students will also be able to classify laws and theories based on their own understanding of their definitions. This lesson consists of several activities including a KWL Chart, Venn Diagram, and an Assessment. This lesson should be followed by the CPALMS lesson "So That's How Theories Are Made!" (Resource ID 154112).
