The session will utilize a Learning Cycle format as the participants are engaged in the phenomena of “how a skewer can go through a balloon without popping it.” This phenomena will be explored through participants interacting with balloons and skewers to try to replicate the phenomena.  A physical model will be built using participants to show the structure of the balloon and how this phenomena is possible. All four language modalities will be utilized and accentuated in the teaching to show explicit connections to science learning. Explicit connections on shifting social language to academic language through a scaffolded process will be modeled.   Participants will have an opportunity to learn the concept of the structure of matter (DCI) with appropriate academic vocabulary strategies. The activity will also show the connection to using models (SEP) as well as Cause and Effect (CCC) to show the 3D nature of the lesson.  Finally, adaptations for different ELD levels will be discussed.
