Step 1: Play this video for students to watch individually. Video is edited to strategically withhold the ending.
Step 2: Challenge students to complete the experimental setup and post videos of conclusions on the Padlet board here. See screenshot of portion of Padlet board below. Students were given the below instructions:
When you are ready, prop your camera over the dish (with help from a family member or holding with your other hand) record a video of you completing the experiment shown in the above video. Note: if you want to do it more than once, you need to rinse all soap out and start over.
Step 4: Students hypothesized, in Zoom breakouts: Why, on a molecular level, the soap-water combination forces the pepper to the side of the dish.
Step 5: Students then repeated the above steps with this similar video edited to end prior to the experimental reveal. Video conclusions were posted here. See screenshot of portion of Padlet board below:
