Lesson 12: Summarizing main ideas of a video

In this section of the unit, students reflect on the way that scientists’ changing ideas about the number of planets reflect the process of scientific inquiry, beginning in this lesson by viewing a video that explains why Pluto is no longer considered a planet. Students practice the skill of writing an evidence-based paragraph to summarize this video.
