Learning Objectives:

  • 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– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add “Molecules in Motion- Diagram” to your Table of Contents; Open your notebook to page 32 and head it properly with “Molecules in Motion-Diagram & Conclusion-11/12/15”
  2. Animation- Water molecules at different temperatures
  3. Experiment- Complete Activity Sheet Handout questions 1-4 and Lab Safety Checklist. Trim and tape Procedure and Activity Sheet Handout as flip page to p.33.
  4. Periods 3 & 6- Diagram & Conclusion- Explain It With Molecules handout
  5. Understanding Connections- Put the statement on the Understanding Connections pages p.28-29 of your science notebook
