In this workshop, we will share our work with both 8th graders and teacher candidates using a virtual lab about melting ice. This standards-based activity integrates visual literacy and science learning. Participants will do part of the virtual lab during the workshop. Both middle school science teachers and those teaching science methods will find this workshop useful.
