- 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 (Periods 2 & 4):
- Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Cover Page- p.25” (Right Side). What do you see in this picture?
- 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)
- Driving Question– Complete full class sharing of questions from See-Think-Wonder. Categorize the questions to come up with a driving question about matter
- Unit Cover Page-On p.25 in your interactive science notebook, create a cover page for the unit on Matter-Solids, Liquids, Gases
- Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
- Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
- Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing
Learning Activities (Periods 3, 6, & 7):
- Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Driving Question- p.26” (Left Side) and “Driving Question- p.27” (Right Side). Open your science notebook to pages 26 and 27.
- Notebook– Set up Driving Question pages 26 and 27.
- Driving Question– Categorize the questions from page 24 to come up with a driving question about matter. Write that question on the top of the Driving Question pages 26 and 27.
