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‚Äôs 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)
