- Do Now– Get out your signed Lab Safety Contract. Get out your science notebook and open to page 19. Guess what is happening in the following situation: Acting on an anonymous phone call, the police raid a house to arrest a suspected murderer. They don’t know what he looks like but they know his name is John and that he is inside the house. The police bust in on a carpenter, a truck driver, a mechanic, and a fireman all playing poker. Without hesitation or communication of any kind, they immediately arrest the fireman. How do they know they’ve got their man?
- Investigation– How can we make a paper airplane travel further? On easel paper, describe your group’s design improvement and experimental design to present to the class. Each group presents their design improvement to the class and as a class, we give constructive feedback.
