Friday, 11/4/16- B 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.

Learning Activities (Periods 2 & 4):

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Molecules Matter -p.29” (Right Side). Head page 29 properly with “Molecules Matter-Investigation-11/4/16.”
  2. Check HW– Unit Cover Page 25
  3. Science Friday– Where’s the Octopus?
  4. Investigation– Molecules Matter- Does water hold together well or come apart easily?- Discuss the following question: What do you think the study of chemistry might be about? What are the three common types of matter on Earth? What are some examples of matter? Set up the investigation on page 29. Model the procedure. Record your observations on page 29 in a sketch and in notes.

Learning Activities (Periods 3, 6 & 7):

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Molecules Matter -p.28” (Left Side). Head page 28 properly with “Molecules Matter-Model & Conclusion-11/4/16.”
  2. Check HW– Unit Cover Page 25
  3. Science Friday- Where’s the Octopus?
  4. Assessment– Experimental Design Quiz (Period 3 only)
  5. Investigation– Molecules Matter- Model the procedure. Record your observations on page 29 in a sketch and in notes.
  6. Discussion- Share observations (full class). When you squeezed the drop of water out of the dropper, did the water break apart or did it hold together? When you tilted the wax paper, did the drop split apart or stay together? When you were pulling the drop around the wax paper, did the water seem to hold together or come apart easily? When you tried to split your drop, did the drop separate easily? What happened when the two small drops touched?
