Thursday, 11/17/16- B Day- Early Dismissal Parent Conferences

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– Get out your science notebook and put it in the bin for your class. Take the 9 Dot Challenge.
  2. Educational Video- MythBusters- Electricity and Magnetism: Electrical Safety in a Thunderstorm- Is it safe to be on the phone or in the shower during a lightning storm? Use the chart to complete a peer review of the things that the MythtBusters do in their science investigations.
