What are our next steps? These ideas for investigations can lead us to uncover important ideas about collisions.
What happens when objects collide?
- Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Design Challenge p.54″ (Left Side). Head page 54 properly with “Crash Test Protection Device-Design Challenge-2/20/19.”
- Science Friday– The Road Best Traveled- A Tale of Ants & Slime Mold
- Ideas for Investigation/Scientists’ Circle– Bring your initial investigation ideas from the home learning task to the scientists’ circle. Share your ideas with the class & record them on the Ideas for Investigation poster.
- Crash Protection Device Design Challenge– Your goal is to design a crash protection device that will absorb enough energy during a car crash to save lives. What materials do you want to use? Why will those work? Are there design features you want to include? Use ISN p.54 to draw an initial design model and ask questions you could investigate to find answers that will help your design. You do not need to agree on a design right now.
