- 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.
|11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times)||Period 5|
Periods 4 & 6- Learning Activities:
- Do Now–Get out your science notebook and open to page 34. What do you see?
- 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.
- Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout
Period 7- Learning Activities:
- 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.
- Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout- Complete Gases
