Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to pages 42-43. Discuss with your cooperative table group:How does temperature affect the particles in a solid? How are the particles in a solid the same as particles in a liquid? How are they different?
  2. Model/CER– Complete ISN p.42. Complete the model of the atoms in the metal ball at room temperature and after it has been heated. Complete the CER- claim about whether temperature affects the atoms in a solid, evidence from the ball and ring demonstration, and reasoning about how the demonstration supports the claim.
  3. Scientific Language Notecard– Make a Scientific Language Notecard for the key word atom. Tape Scientific Language Notecard as a flip to ISN p.43. Enter the key word atom in the Index.
  4. Investigative Phenomenon– Why do bridges have flexible connections?– Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of atoms in a solid in the metal ball and ring demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening to the road on the bridge. Why do you think the volume of water increases when the water is heated? Tape your model as a flip page to p.42.
