Question:

Do all liquids have the same density?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Copy down your homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Sinking & Floating Liquids p.65” (Right Side). Head page 65 properly with “Sinking & Floating Liquids-4/20/18.”
  2. Science FridayThe Very Hungry Maggot
  3. Review HW– “Take It Further” handout
  4. Demonstration- Observe the demonstration of candles floating on two different liquids. Do all liquids have the same density? Measure the mass of equal volumes of water and rubbing alcohol and record your results on ISN p.65. Observe the density column. Answer questions 1-5 on the Demonstration handout.

Question:

What is the density of water? Do different amounts of matter (like water) have the same density?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Copy down your homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to pages 52-53. Work on your Voice Finder. Find and answer question 1, then follow the dashed line to each question to think about and answer each one.
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the DQST on pages 52-53 for the Density of Water Investigation on ISN pgs. 60-61.
  3. Formative Assessment– Density of Water

Monday, 4/16/18- A Day- Maker Monday (Part 3)

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will get the feel of a design approach and get a taste of each design “mode” (empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test).
  • Students will see the value of engaging with real people to help them ground their design decisions, that low-resolutions prototypes are useful to learn from (take an iterative approach), and to bias toward action (you can make a lot of progress in a little bit of time if you start DOing).

*Lesson today from The Wallet Project. Check it out!

Learning Tasks:
