Friday, 10/30/15- A Day- Happy Halloween!

Learning Objective:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Matter Cover Page-p.27” (Right Side); Read the answer to the questions “What is the Universe Made of? on p.26 in your science notebook. Think of two key concepts from the video segment; Turn to your partner and answer the question- What are you going to be for Halloween?
  2. Science Friday- Invasion of the Zombees: A Bee Horror Film, Geek My Pumpkin, Candy Corn in Space, To the Bat Cave, Physics of Giant Pumpkins, and/or True BloodSuckers.
  3. Trigger-On sticky notes, write questions/ideas about matter. Put your sticky notes on p.26 in your interactive science notebook. Whenever a question comes to mind, write it on a sticky note, and stick it here.
  4. Unit Cover page– On p. 27 in your interactive science notebook, create a cover page for the unit on Matter. Use your textbooks pp.6-33 for ideas for pictures

Rules for Cover Page:
Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing
