How is energy getting into the cup, if not from collisions with air?
- Do Now– Get out your science notebook and open to ISN p.42. Discuss the following questions: What did we figure out from this experiment about the movement of energy? Did these results match your predictions? What surprised you about these results? Which condition resulted in the greatest amount of energy being transmitted into the cold drink? Why do you think that is?

- Blocking Energy Diagram- On a separate piece of paper, draw the diagrams shown on the board. Work with your partner to label the diagrams as follows: Light waves go through something, Light waves bounce off something, and light waves are absorbed into something. Then below that label, choose a label for how you think the energy is moving in the following situations: the cup is clear, the cup is covered in white paper, and the cup is covered in foil.
- Blocking Energy Questions– Below the diagram on the separate sheet of paper, answer the following questions: What is happening to the energy when it hits the cup in each of these three images? Which of these three images do you think will allow maximum energy into the cup, getting the particles in the cup moving as much as possible? Which condition from our experiment corresponds to that image? Which of these three images do you think will allow minimum energy into the cup, getting the particles in the cup moving as little as possible? Which condition from our experiment corresponds to that image? Trim and tape this paper as a flip page to ISN p.42.
