- Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents on the Left Side- Score Sheet p.64. Head page 64 properly with Naked Egg Drop-Score Sheet-5/7/19. Tape the score sheet as a flip page to ISN p.64.
- Reading Comprehension– “Dynamics of Flight”- Read the introduction and preview the text as a full class. As the text is read aloud for the “gist,” make quick jots of what you notice. Now individually or with a partner, read slowly to clarify information from the quick read and annotate the text. As you find information, record it in your “Four Forces of Fight” organizer.
- Investigation– The Paper Tent- Fold a piece of paper (lengthwise) in half and make a paper tent. Place the paper tent on your desk. Predict what will happen when you blow into the tent. Will it appear to get larger, will it remain unchanged, or will it bend down toward the table? Position the straw about 2 inches away from the paper tent so that you will be able to blow a steady stream of air across the surface of the table or desk and through the tent. Observe what happens and complete worksheet. Now blow harder into the straw. Alternately, you can also turn your paper tent upside down and blow through the V-shaped paper. Trim & tape “Fun with Bernoulli” worksheet onto ISN p.63.
