Friday, 3/31/17- A Day- Mismatch Day for March of Dimes

Core Ideas

  • Each atom has a charged sub-structure consisting of a nucleus, which is made of protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons.
  • The periodic table orders elements horizontally by the number of protons in the atom’s nucleus and places those with similar chemical properties in columns. The repeating patterns of this table reflect patterns of outer electron states.

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.67” (Right Side).
  2. Science FridayBreakthrough: Connecting the Drops
  3. Anchoring Phenomenon/See-Think-Wonder– Share with the full class your responses on page 66.
  4. Model– Create an initial model about the randomly dancing smoke particles. Draw a diagram of the phenomenon on a piece of easel paper. (Cooperative table group)
  5. Unit Cover Page-On p.67 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

Homework:

Unit cover page 67 due on Tue. 4/4

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.66” (Left Side). Head page 66 properly with “Atoms Anchoring Phenomenon-See Think Wonder-3/30/17.”
  2. Notebook– Trim and tape NEW Table of Contents to inside front cover. Write the phenomena topic on p.66 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 randomly dancing smoke particles video segment. Answer the questions on page 66. (Write-Pair-Share)

Wednesday, 3/29/17- A Day

Learning Objective:

  • To plan an investigation to identify factors that determine the friction force between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your Shipping & Sliding Experiment packet. Get out your Data Table (on graph paper).
  2. Investigation– Shipping and Sliding (Friction) experiment- Complete graph. Discussion: How does the type of floor material affect the amount of friction? Period 3- How does mass affect the amount of friction? What solution would you recommend to the shipping company?
  3. CFA #3– Friction
  4. Educational video– Bill Nye Friction, Science of the Winter OlympicsFriction and Heat: The Science of SpeedFriction PhET simulation

Tuesday, 3/28/17- B Day- Science CMT

CMT Schedule
8:23-9:58 Science CMT
10:01-10:47 Period 5
10:50-11:36 Period 4
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 2
1:04-1:50 Period 3
1:53-2:45 Period 1

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.

  1. Do Now–  Get out your Shipping & Sliding Experiment packet. Get out your Data Table (on graph paper).
  2. Investigation– Shipping and Sliding (Friction) experiment- Set up graph paper with title & scale, and label each axis with a variable. Continue conducting your experiment and recording your data in the data table (cooperative table groups). Consider what kind of graph is most appropriate and plot appropriate and accurate data that will lead toward a conclusion. What conclusion can you make based on your data?

Monday, 3/27/17- A Day

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 Objective:

  • To plan an investigation to identify factors that determine the friction force between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your Shipping & Sliding Experiment handouts. Read the Procedure that your wrote on the Shipping and Sliding Experiment handout.
  2. Investigation– Shipping and Sliding (Friction) Experiment- Review of lab safety expectations & cooperative table group member responsibilities. Conduct your experiment and record your data in the data table (cooperative table groups).
