Focus Question:

How does a lid affect what happens to the liquid in the cup?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s home learning task in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Lid Investigation” p.31 (Right Side). Head p.31 properly with “Lid Investigation-10/28/19.″
  2. InvestigationSet up ISN p.31 with Data Table. Review the variables & procedures on the Investigation Plan handout. We are going to draw predictive models in our notebooks during the lab as you wait for 10 minutes between your initial and final temperatures. Prepare predictive models on ISN p.31.

Monday, 10/27/19- A Day

Focus Question:

How are the cup features that keep things cold the same or different for keeping things hot?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s home learning task in your planner. Get out your ISN and open it to page 22. Write the Focus Question “How are the cup features that keep things cold the same or different for keeping things warm?” in the first column under “Activity.”
  2. Driving Question Summary TableShare best performing & worst performing cup models from ISN p.28. (6 min.) Update the DQST on ISN p.22-23 for the Hot Water Test on ISN pgs. 28-29. (6 min.)
  3. Plan an Investigation to test the lid– Based on the hot and cold cup tests, we’ve identified certain cups with features that we think are important for keeping liquids hot or cold. For example, we saw how cups with lids were better able to keep liquids hot and cold than cups without lids. Turn & Talk- What evidence do we already have to support the importance of the lid in helping to keep liquids hot or cold? What additional evidence would we need to collect to help us understand how and why cups with lids were better able to keep things hot or cold? What are some things that we need to keep in mind when designing our investigations? Plan investigation about the lid’s role using Investigation Plan handout. Work on the investigation question together. Develope vocabulary for variables. Develop an investigation plan for the lid in pairs. Facilitate whole group agreement on variables & procedures.

Friday, 10/25/19- A Day

Focus Question:

How are the cup features that keep things cold the same or different for keeping things hot?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Hot Water Data Analysis” p.28 (Left Side). Head p.28 properly with “Hot Water Data Analysis-10/25/19.″
  2. Science FridayThe Ensnaring Strands of Spider Silk
  3. Data Analysis– Look at the Sample Hot Water Test data. Work with your partner to look for patterns similar to what you sis when you analyzed cold water data. What patterns do you notice in the data? How did our findings compare to the test with cold water? What additional questions do you have? On ISN p.28, record the patterns that you notice.
  4. Model– Model the best-performing and worst-performing cups on ISN p.28. use diagrams and words to explain how each cup system can keep liquids both hot and cold or cannot keep liquids hot and cold.

Thursday, 10/24/19- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

How are the cup features that keep things cold the same or different for keeping things hot?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s home learning task in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Hot Water Test” p.29 (Right Side). Head p.29 properly with “Hot Water Test-10/24/19.″
  2. Turn & Talk– What did we figure out in the previous investigation? Do you think the cups that kept the water cold would also work best if we added hot water in the cups instead?
  3. Investigation– How are the cup features that keep things cold the same or different for keeping things hot? Set up ISN p.29. Record the parameters that we decided to keep constant/variables that we are going to control. Set up a data table with two columns- one to record time in minutes and the other to record temperature in ℃. Below the data table on ISN p.29, write your prediction by answering the question: “Do you think the cups that performed best at keeping a drink cold will be best at keeping a drink hot? What patterns do you think we’re going to see with hot liquids? Why?” Remind students how to read a thermometer. Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist– Before You Begin. Carry out your investigation. Record temperatures in your Data Table and draw and label diagrams of the original cup & the change that you made. Clean up & return all materials. DO NOT THROW ANY CUPS AWAY! One person from each group should put your group’s data in the class data spreadsheet. Complete the “After Lab is Completed” part of the Lab Safety Checklist.
