How can containers keep stuff from warming up?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Also, please get out your directions and template for the Final Summative Assessment on the Thermal Energy Transfer Unit- a Scientific Explanation & Model.
  2. Scientific Explanation– Continue working on the evidence using sticky notes. Connect “parts of the story” back to investigations and other learning tasks by placing a sticky note with a short phrase about how the task supports the explanation next to that part of your model. Take time to re-think and re-write. Share your ideas with a partner. Use the Peer Feedback Sentence Frames to get feedback about the clarity of your explanation and your scientific ideas. Add, delete, or change ideas as needed.
