Monday, 10/31/16- B Day- Happy Halloween!

Core Ideas:

  • 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 to the NEW Table of Contents- “Matter Phenomenon p.24” (Left Side). Head page 24 properly with “Matter Phenomenon-See Think Wonder-10/31/16.”
  2. Notebook– Trim and tape NEW Table of Contents to inside front cover. Write the phenomena topic on p.24 and set up a See-Think- Wonder with the following questions: What do you see? What do you think about that? What does it make you wonder?
  3. Phenomenon/See-Think-Wonder– Watch the The Liquid That Pours Itself video segment. Answer the questions on page 24. (Write-Pair-Share)
  4. Model– Create an initial model about how you think the liquid is able to pour itself. Draw a diagram of the phenomenon on a piece of easel paper. (Cooperative table group)

Homework:

Experimental scenario quiz on Wednesday, 11/2

Monday, 10/24/16-A Day

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to pages 22 and 23. Write a reflection to the following prompt on a piece of paper.
  2. Complete Input page 23 and Output page 22. Be sure that you have done the following:
  • On page 23– Complete the assigned experimental scenario. You may need to use a flip page. Tape it to the bottom of page 23.
  • Follow directions to tape the Design Detectives handout to page 23. Demonstrate how to use page 23 to prepare for the quiz on experimental scenarios.
  • On page 22– Describe your own experimental scenario. Trade your notebook with a partner to see if he/she can identify the key parts to the design of the experiment.

3. Practice experimental scenarios with the following handouts: Heated Soil and/or Tomato Growth
