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- “Molecules in Motion Experiment -p.33” (Right Side); Head page 33 properly with “Molecules in Motion- Experiment- 11/9/15;”  Trim “Take It Further” activity sheet with scissors and tape it to page 30 as a flip page.
  2. Period 4– Brainstorming Diagrams-On page 30 of your science notebook, draw a model of water on molecular level based on animation and observations. Periods 2, 6, & 7- Educational video segment- Water Balloon Popping in Slow MotionPeriod 3– Review “Take It Further” Questions
  3. Experiment- Molecules in Motion- Is the speed of molecules in hot water different than in cold water? Write- Pair- Share to determine a Problem Statement, a Hypothesis, and a Procedure
  4. Extend- “Water Drops Unite!” or “Race Drop Runway”
