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.

Period 2- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents-“Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.37” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 37 and head it properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Graphic Organizer-12/7/16.” 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. Trim and tape the graphic organizer directly to page 37.

Periods 3, 4, & 6- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.36” (Left Side) and “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.37” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 36 and head it properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Invent the Quiz-12/7/16” and head page 37 properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Graphic Organizer-12/2/16. Get out the handout that says “You saw an animation about molecules in solids, liquids, and gases.” This is your graphic organizer. (It has Question #8 on it).
  2. Complete Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout. Trim and tape the graphic organizer to page 37.
  3. Notebook– Set up homework page 36.
  4. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 26-27 for the Molecules in Solid Activity.
  5. Educational videoMatter Compilation: Crash Course Kids

Period 7- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.36” (Left Side) and “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.37” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 36 and head it properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Invent the Quiz-12/7/16” and head page 37 properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Graphic Organizer-12/2/16.
  2. Notebook– Trim and tape your graphic organizer on Solids, Liquids, and Gases (#8) directly to page 37. Set up homework page 36.
