Wednesday, 11/30/16- A Day

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.

Periods 2, 4, & 6 Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Molecules in Gas-p.35” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 35 and head it properly with “Molecules in Gas-Investigation-11/29/16.”
  2. Periods 4 & 6- Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 26-27 for the Molecules in Solid Activity
  3. Demonstration- Basketball and Compressed Air- How do these demonstrations show that gas is matter? Answer questions 1 & 2 on handout.
  4. Notebook- Set up page 35
  5. Investigation-Molecules in Gas- How do heating and cooling affect a gas? On page 35, determine a problem statement, hypothesis, and experimental variables for the key question. Read the Activity handout.

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Periods 3 & 7 Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and open your notebook to page 35.
  2. Investigation- Molecules in Gas- How do heating and cooling affect a gas? Read procedure and model steps. Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Review Table Group Member Responsibilities. Begin Lab! Record observations by sketching on bottom of handout. Complete Lab Questions 4 & 5 and Lab Safety Checklist– After Lab is Completed. Tape Activity handout as flip page to p.35.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Ask the person who sits next to you if he or she will eat turkey tomorrow. If not, what will be eaten instead? Also find out if he or she prefers apple pie or pumpkin pie or no pie at all. Get out your notebook and open it to the first page of your unit on Matter (p.25).
  2. Organize your notebook! In your cooperative table group, check out your unit on Matter (pages 25-33 in your science notebook). Is your Table of Contents up to date? Do all pages have headings? Is your title page (p.25) colored? Does your Driving Questions Summary Table (pp.26-27) have two entries on it? Are pages 28-33 complete with flip pages attached neatly? Help each other out by switching notebooks and giving each other constructive feedback!
