Thursday, 5/30/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated as a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you watch the rest of us do science.

Lesson Question:

How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Friction Investigation p.77 (Right Side). Head page 77 properly with “Friction-Investigation-5/29/19.”
  2. Investigation– Friction- Set up ISN p.77 with lesson question dependent variable, independent variable, & constants (controlled variables). Review procedure. Set up Data Table on ISN p.77. Review lab safety expectations & cooperative table group member responsibilities. Conduct the experiment and record data in the data table on ISN p.77 (cooperative table groups). Trim & tape procedure as a flip page to ISN p.77

Tuesday, 5/28/19- B Day- NGSS Schedule Periods 1, 3, 2, 4, 5, 6, & 7

Lesson Question:

How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Friction Notes p.75 (Right Side). Head page 75 properly with “Friction-Notes from Reading-5/28/19.”
  2. Video/Scientific Language Key Word/Notes– Watch “Expedition 3: Fundamental Forces” to meet Kobie Boykins, a mechanical engineer at NASA. Record the lesson question on ISNp.75: “How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?” Set up ISN p.75 to record the definitions of the following scientific language keywords: force, net force, & friction. Record the same terms and page numbers in the Index in the back of your ISN. On ISN p.75, take notes on the reading.

Friday, 5/24/19- A Day

Lesson Question:

How are the laws of motion and forces used to plan and execute space missions like the Mars Curiosity Rover?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- Life on Mars p.74 (Left Side). Head page 74 properly with “Life on Mars-Notes from Video-5/24/19.
  2. Science FridayThe Giant Squid’s Biggest Mystery
  3. Observations from Mars Rovers– Set up ISN p.74 with the following two questions: A. What did you observe about the falling and landing of the robot rovers? B. What did each robotic rover tell us about Mars? Make a T-chart to compare the two groups of rovers: Spirit and Opportunity and Curiosity. Watch the video The Curious Life of a Mars Rover, and record your observations about the Spirit and Opportunity rovers and the Curiosity rover on ISN p.74, using the questions above as a guide.
