Tuesday, 12/13/16- WINN/Advisory- No Periods 1 & 4

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

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 39. Get out the Lab Activity handout and read the procedure for room temperature washers placed in hot water.
  2. Investigation- Heat, Temperature, Conduction- Why does the temperature of an object change when it is placed in hot water? Read procedure and model steps. On page 39, determine a problem statement, hypothesis, and experimental variables for the key question. Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Review Table Group Member Responsibilities.
