Dear Student Scientists:

I’m sorry I missed your class today. I’m in school, but in various meetings throughout the day.  You will work on the following textbook assignment to further dive into air pressure specifically, and pressure as a force in general. I’m counting on you to complete your assignment and to make the substitute feel welcome. Tomorrow, we will be able to finalize our field work on crashes when we design & test our crash protection devices!

Read pages 74-80 in the Motion, Forces, & Energy textbook. Define the key terms on p.74 (pressure, pascal, fluid, barometer.) Answer all questions 1-5 on p. 80.

Lesson Question

How can engineers use their understanding of air pressure to make airplanes fly?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Air Pressure p.63” (Right Side). Head page 63 properly with “Air Pressure-Outline-4/29/19.”
  2. Air Pressure Outline/Google Slides– Use the Outline template to take notes on the Air Pressure Google Slides.
  3. Notebook Work– Trim & tape outline to ISN p.63. Add the following scientific language terms to Index: Air pressure and Bernoulli’s Principle.

Lesson Question:

What happens when objects collide? How can we design a crash protection device to absorb enough energy during a car crash to save lives?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowGet out your signed field trip permission formTurn to your partner and tell your partner everything you know using the following scientific language: reference point, distance, displacement, speed, velocity, acceleration, momentum, inertia. Now get out your science notebook and check yourself. The unit starts on ISN p.47
  2. Science Friday- Etched From the Mind
  3. Motion Summative Assessment
  4. Putting Pieces Together– Take stock- Identify and consolidate ideas you have figured out across your investigations about motion. Put pieces together- Come to a consensus on how the pieces explain what happens when objects collide. Develop a public representation of how the pieces fit together.

Thursday, 4/25/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Lesson Question:

What happens when objects collide? How can we design a crash protection device to absorb enough energy during a car crash to save lives?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your signed field trip permission form. Get out your science notebook and open to pages 60-61. Get out your graphs and your Calculations: Momentum and Acceleration worksheet.
  2. Notebook Work– Open your ISN tp pages 60-61. On page 60, trim the Mission 2 Field Data and tape it right down to the page. Tape your graphs as a flip page to ISN p.60. On ISN p. 61, tape your Calculations: Momentum and Acceleration worksheet as a flip page.
  3. Putting Pieces Together– Take stock- Identify and consolidate ideas you have figured out across your investigations about motion. Put pieces together- Come to a consensus on how the pieces explain what happens when objects collide. Develop a public representation of how the pieces fit together.
