Wednesday, 11/13/19- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 1, 3, 5, & 7

Focus Question:

Where does the water on the outside of the cold cup system come from?

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- “Water Droplet Investigation” p.37 (Right Side). Head p.34 properly with “Water Droplet Investigation- 11/13/19.″
  2. Turn and Talk– Observe the ice-cold water in the clear plastic cup with a lid. Not a lot of water particles are escaping from the top, but we’ve noticed water droplets formed on the outside of the cup. Where do you think the water droplets come from?
  3. Investigation– Brainstorm ways to test the water droplet source with a Write-Pair-Share on ISNp.37. Read through the procedures for Part A of the “Water Droplet Investigation” handout. Start Part A of the investigation and record starting mass. Record predictions on Part A. Read through the procedures for Part B of the Water Droplet Investigation handout. Start Part B of the investigation. Record predictions for Part B. Return to the Part A setup and record the final mass in the Data Table. Complete observations for Part A. Return to Part B and wipe the outside of the cups with a white tissue. Complete observations for Part B. Work on Analysis and Conclusions Questions with your partner. Whole class building understandings discussion- where have we seen this phenomenon happen before? What conditions were present for it to happen? Summarize patterns across experiences on chart paper. Tape “Water Droplet Investigation” handout as a flip page to ISN p.37.
