Question:

What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Effect of Volume- p.58” (Left Side). Head page 58 properly with “Effect of Volume-3/29/18.” Open your science notebook to page 59. Get out your lab activity handout.
  2. Science FridayForecasting Avalanches
  3. Investigation– What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass?  Complete calculating the densities and identifying the samples using the densities. Answer question 5. Tape the Activity handout as flip page to ISN p.59. Review data as a class. On ISN p.58, model relative size & arrangement of atoms/molecules in plastic & metal cylinders and write a Claim-Evidence-Reasoning (CER) regarding how the volume of cylinders of the same mass affects density.

Question:

What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down your homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Effect of Volume- p.59” (Right Side). Head page 59 properly with “Effect of Volume-3/27/18.”
  2. Investigation– What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass? On ISN p.59, set up Key Question, Experimental Variables, & Hypothesis.
  3. Demonstration– Cylinders- Do cylinders with the same mass have the same volume? How do you measure volume using the water displacement method?
  4. Practice– Questions 1-4 on Demonstration handout

Home Learning:

Monday, 3/26/18- B Day- Maker Monday!

Learning Objectives:

  • Students will get the feel of a design approach and get a taste of each design “mode” (empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test).
  • Students will see the value of engaging with real people to help them ground their design decisions, that low-resolutions prototypes are useful to learn from (take an iterative approach), and to bias toward action (you can make a lot of progress in a little bit of time if you start DOing).

*Lesson today from The Wallet Project. Check it out!

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Design the ideal wallet.
  2. Video SegmentWhat is Design Thinking
  3. Maker Monday- The Wallet Project– Steps 1-4

Friday, 3/23/18- A Day- Early Dismissal Schedule

Learning Tasks:

  1. Science FridayThe Meteorite Museum
  2. NGSS Assessment Sample Items– Today we will go through some science assessment sample items to illustrate the rigor and complexity of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) assessment. The sample items will allow students to become familiar with the item interactions and navigational tools that are used in
    NGSS assessments.
