Learning Activities:

  1. Science FridaySnowflake Safari, Growing Snowflakes in a Bottle, and Another Reason to Spike the Eggnog
  2. SimulationStates of Matter Basics PhET simulation- Explore the simulation. Observe the movement of water molecules in each state and record your observations. Observe the movement of neon atoms in each state and record your observations. Compare/contrast the particles in water to neon in each state. What happens when temperature or pressure changes?

Wednesday, 12/21/16- B Day

All classes should report to the library today to gather information about Changes of State from the simulation States of Matter Basics. The assignment is on Google Classroom.

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

SimulationStates of Matter Basics PhET simulation- Explore the simulation. Observe the movement of water molecules in each state and record your observations. Observe the movement of neon atoms in each state and record your observations. Compare/contrast the particles in water to neon in each state. What happens when temperature or pressure changes?

Tuesday, 12/20/16- A Day

All classes should report to the library today to gather information about Changes of State from the simulation States of Matter Basics. The assignment is on Google Classroom.

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Develop a model & description of the following states of matter: solids, liquids, gases. Predict the effect of temperature on the particle movement of each. (Developing States of Matter Models handout)
  2. SimulationStates of Matter Basics PhET simulation- Explore the simulation. Observe the movement of water molecules in each state and record your observations. Observe the movement of neon atoms in each state and record your observations. Compare/contrast the particles in water to neon in each state. What happens when temperature or pressure changes?

Monday, 12/19/16- B Day

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to pages 38 and 39. We are half way through the 2nd marking period. Reflect on how you can become a better learner. Write down 2 things you can do to become a better learner.
  2. Advance OrganizerIntroducing Solids, Liquids, & Gases, Measuring Temperature, & and Temperature vs Heat Eureka! video segments
  3. Investigative Phenomenon- With your cooperative table group partners, revise the model that explains how the spoon gets hot in the liquid. Use what you learned from your observations of the investigation with washers and water of different temperatures and your model and conclusions of what is happening on the molecular level. Watch the molecular model animations of the Heated Spoon and Cooled Spoon.
