Tuesday, 12/6/16- WINN/Advisory Day- No Periods 2 & 3

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 4 & 6- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Get out your science notebook and open to page 34. What do you see?
  2. Investigative Phenomenon–Why does a balloon grow when it is heated? Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of molecules in a gas from the investigation of air in a bottle, create a model to explain what is happening to the balloon in the hot car. (Write-Pair-Share). Observe the animation “Heating Molecules of a Gas” and refine your model. Trim and tape your model as a flip page to p.34.
  3. Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout

Period 7- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and open to pages 26 & 27. Get out the handout that says “You saw an animation about molecules in solids, liquids, and gases.” It has Question #8.
  2. Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout- Complete Gases
  3. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 26-27 for the Molecules in Solid Activity
  4. Educational video- Matter Compilation: Crash Course Kids
