Magic Bus of School Science: “Seeing” What Can’t Be Seen

by: Thomas O'Brien

Scientists use direct empirical and inferential evidence, logical argument, and skeptical review to formulate and evaluate hypotheses and tentative, provisionally accepted theories. In this activity, a simple line-sketch drawing of a school bus cues learners to infer the presence of an entry or exit door on the opposite side of the bus (not visible in the drawing) to predict the direction in which the bus is moving.
