Thursday, 11/19/15- Early Dismissal Schedule- Parent Conferences

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– Get out the following handouts: PhET Simulation Prediction handout and PhET Simulation Data Table. Plus any other recent handouts! Get out your science notebook and open to pages 36-37; Answer questions 1-16 on the “Voice Finder.”
  2. SimulationPhET States of Matter: Basics -Evaluate prediction and review conclusion based on observations from simulation
  3. Organize your notebook! Trim and tape the handouts that we have been doing to pages 34-37.
