    In this video Paul Andersen shows conceptual thinking in a mini-lesson on cause, mechanism and effect. Two examples are included in the video and two additional examples are included in the linked thinking slides.

    TERMS:
    Cause - a thing that gives rise to an event
    Effect - an event
    Mechanism - the process underlying a phenomenon
    System - a set of components (e.g. things) working together

    This progression is based on the Crosscutting Concept elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education. "Cause and effect relationships may be used to predict phenomena in natural or designed systems."
