Tuesday, 1/23/17- A Day Advisory/WINN Schedule-No Periods 4 & 7

8:23-9:09 Advisory
9:12-9:58 WINN
10:01-10:47 Period 1
10:50-11:36 Period 2
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5
1:04-1:50 Period 3
1:53-2:45 Period 6

Core Ideas:

  • Substances are made from different types of atoms, which combine with one another in various ways. Atoms form molecules that range in size from two to thousands of atoms.
  • Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- Cover Page- p.51 (Right Side). What do you see in this picture?
  2. Model– Create an initial model about how you think the person is able to float on top of the water instead of swimming in the Dead Sea. Draw a diagram of the phenomenon on a piece of easel paper. (Cooperative table group)
  3. Driving Question– Complete full class sharing of questions from See-Think-Wonder. Categorize the questions to come up with a driving question about density.
  4. Unit Cover Page-On p.51 in your interactive science notebook, create a cover page for the unit on Density
    • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
    • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
    • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Anchoring Phenomenon p.50” (Left Side). Head page 50 properly with “Density Anchoring Phenomenon-See Think Wonder-1/23/17.”
  2. Notebook– Trim and tape NEW Table of Contents to inside front cover. Write the phenomena topic on p.50 and set up a See-Think- Wonder with the following questions: What do you see? What do you think about that? What does it make you wonder?
  3. Anchoring Phenomenon/See-Think-Wonder– Watch the person floating on the Dead Sea video segment. Answer the questions on page 50. (Write-Pair-Share)

Homework:

Self-Reflection in Google classroom due tomorrow 1/24

Friday, 1/20/17- A 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-Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook.
  2. Science FridayThe Road Best Traveled: A Tale of Ants, Slime Mold, & the NJ Turnpike

Period 6

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Melting p.48” (Left Side) and “Melting p.49” (Right Side). Open to page 48 and head it properly with “Melting-Application-1/17/17 and open to page 49 and head it properly with “Melting-Demonstration-1/17/17.”
  2. Model– Observe the animations of Ice structure Ice at Different Angles. Create a model of water molecules in solid ice and liquid water on p.46. Freezing Point of Gas- Liquid Nitrogen Demonstration Let’s Freeze Liquid Nitrogen
  3. Demonstration– What happens to the speed of molecules in ice when it is heated? Where does the energy come from to melt the ice? Describe your observations of the ice melting on different surfaces on page 49. Define melting. Add key term to index at back of notebook.
