Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties like density (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.
- Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Add to your NEW Table of Contents- “Density Cue p.56” (Left Side); Get out your science notebook and head page 56 properly with “Density-Cue-2/2/16.”
- Notebook– Trim and tape Table of Contents to front cover and write cue question on p.56
- Cue– Brainstorm- On p.56 of your science notebook, predict whether a can of coke will float or sink in a tank of water. Then observe the Float or Sink demonstration. What is the difference between the different cans of soda? Based on your observation, come up with a rule that you think will determine whether something will float or sink. What do you think determines the density of an object? What do you know about density? (Write-Pair-Share)
- Trigger-On sticky notes, write questions/ideas about density. Put your sticky notes on p.56 in your interactive science notebook. Whenever a question comes to mind, write it on a sticky note, and stick it here.
- Unit Cover page– On p. 57 in your interactive science notebook, create a cover page for the unit on Density.
- 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
- Complete the Density Unit Cover page
- Periods 3 & 6– Science Writing Activity due Friday, 2/5
