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

    TERMS:
    Tests - a planned act that is done to learn something
    Cause - a thing that gives rise to an event
    Support - to give assistance to
    Refute - prove to be wrong or false

    This progression is based on the Crosscutting Concept elements from the NRC document A Framework for K-12 Science Education. "Simple tests can be designed to gather evidence to support or refute student ideas about causes."
