Monday, 10/10/16- B Day- Fall Picture Day

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Designer Plane p.18” (Left Side). Head page 18 properly with “Designer Plane-Investigation-10/10/16.”
  2. Set up HW on page 18– “Design an Improved Plane-Conclusion“- 1. State your claim. What was your proposed design improvement? 2. Give evidence. How do you know that your design was or was not an improvement? 3. Use reasoning- Why does your evidence support or not support your claim?
  3. Investigation– How can we make a paper airplane travel further? Period 3- Complete Lab Safety Checklist “After Lab is Completed.” and share data and calculate average. All classes– Claim-Evidence-Reasoning Protocol-In your cooperative table group and on your easel paper (Be prepared to share with the full class)-CLAIM- What was your proposed design improvement? What effect did you predict your design improvement would have on your plane? Ex. Adding a paperclip to the paper plane makes it go farther.EVIDENCE- How do you know that? Describe the evidence (results/data) that support your claim. Ex. In this lab, the paper plane with a paperclip went an average distance of 30 meters and the paper plane without the paperclip went an average distance of 23 meters.

    REASONING- Why does your evidence support your claim? Explain how your evidence connects to your claim. Ex. Since the average distance that paper plane with the paperclip traveled is 7 meters further than the average distance that the plane without the paperclip traveled, adding a paperclip to a plane does make it travel further.


Complete “Design an Improved Plane- Conclusion” on page 18- due Thursday, 10/13
