Students will be able to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.
- Science Friday- When Eels Attack
- State of Matter Changes HyperDoc on Google Classroom- pink EXPLAIN section
Watch the videos, read the Student Reading, and gather with Mrs. Vigliotti for the mini-lesson.
After using the resources above, collaborate with no more than two other students to develop a model
The model should describe/explain:
the liquifying of candle wax OR a puddle drying up in the sun AND the hardening of molten metal OR the “smoke” you see when you breathe in cold air.
Your model should feature the following changes:
- Particle motion
- Change of state of matter
Your model should include the following:
- Observable and unobservable features
- The passing of time (ex. before-during-after)
- A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?)
- Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.
*You can continue to work through each section on your own and at your own rate: EXPLORE (yellow), EXPLAIN (pink), ELABORATE/EXTEND (blue), and EVALUATE (purple). Before moving onto ELABORATE/EXTEND, bring your models to Mrs. Vigliotti.
If you do not finish a particular section on time, you will be expected to complete it outside of class.
Final models will be handed in on Tuesday 2/5.
