ABSTRACT
The article describes a four-to six-week unit on evaporation and condensation for fifth-grade students which incorporates four essential aspects of scientific modeling. The activity sequence includes constructing a model to explain a phenomena, testing the model, evaluating the model, testing the model against other ideas, and revising the model. In addition, the sequence also includes using the scientific model to predict and explain and to be effective in helping students learn key scientific concepts about evaporation and condensation and for developing their understanding about modeling.
