Lesson Question

How can we slow energy transfer into a cup?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and your Part 4 Design Tracker handout.
  2. Revised Cup Design– Revise your cup design & document the latest status of your design in Part 4 Section D. Represent your design by drawing a picture/diagram and using words to explain how your design minimizes energy transfer. Be prepared to justify your designs in Scientists’ Circle using your understanding of the science and the data that you collected. Explain how your cup is designed to keep a drink cold.
  3. Scientists’ Circle– Bring your Part 4 handout, your ISN, & your cup. The goal of our discussion is to share ideas and receive feedback. Were anyone’s findings surprising to you?  Why were they surprising? How will you incorporate feedback from your peers into your design? What new ideas did you hear that you might want to incorporate into your designs?
