Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents- “Related Phenomena p.56 (Left Side). Head p.56 with “Related Phenomena-1/31/2020.”
  2. Science Friday– Nothing to Sneeze At
  3. Share & compare models of how the speaker makes the window move. Record your ideas in a Similarities/Differences T-chart on ISN p.54.
  4. Build an initial consensus model of how the speakers make the window move. Record the class’s initial consensus model on ISN p.54.
  5. Brainstorm related phenomena– Where have you seen something like this? Record your ideas on ISN p.56.

Thursday, 1/30/2020- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Initial Model p.54 (Left Side). Head p.54 with “Initial Model-1/30/2020.”
  2. Initial Model– Yesterday, we made a lot of noticings of what’s happening in the phenomenon of a car’s speaker making a faraway window move. We seem to
    agree on what is happening in the video, but it sounds like we have some different ideas about how the speaker is making the window move. Develop & draw an initial model on the template handout that might explain the question, “How does the sound coming from one thing (like the speaker) make another thing far away (like the window) move?” Show what’s happening at a zoomed-in scale at three places: at the surface of the speaker, in the air between the speaker and the window, and at the surface of the window. Use pictures, symbols, and labels to represent what you can’t see. Use the lines below each model to write a short caption explaining what’s happening in your model. Tape your initial model as a flip page to ISN p.55.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Initial Model p.54 (Left Side). Head p.54 with “Initial Model-1/29/2020.”

    agree on what’s happening in the video, but it sounds like we have some different ideas about how the speaker is making the window move. Develop & draw an initial model on the template handout how you might explain the question, “How does the sound coming from one thing (like the speaker) make another thing far away (like the window) move?” Show what is happening in each of the three places indicated. Show what’s happening at a zoomed-in scale at three places: at the
    surface of the speaker, in the air between the speaker and the window, and at the surface of the window. There might be points where you need to show something they can’t see. You can use pictures, symbols, and labels to represent these components. Use the lines below each model to write a short caption explaining what’s happening in their model. Tape your initial model as a flip page to ISN p.55.

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Anchoring Phenomenon p.55 (Right Side). Head p.55 with “Anchoring Phenomenon-1/28/2020.”
  2. Explore Anchoring Phenomenon What do we notice? Make observations of a video of a truck playing loud music. Record what you notice and wonder about the video in the T-chart. Share noticings & wonderings in pairs.
  3. Make observations of a speaker making sounds– What do we notice? From the video, we noticed that the sound source has something to do with a speaker in a truck. Let’s take a closer look at a speaker making sound up close. Record what you notice and wonder about the speaker making sounds on a new T-chart. Keep in mind what the speaker is doing when it makes sound and what is happening while the speaker is making sounds. Then, compare the speaker apparatus to what happened in the truck video on the Comparison organizer.
  4. Initial Ideas Discussion– Build a class record of observations of the video of the truck speaker & the window and the speaker apparatus making sound with a whole class discussion. Tape the T-charts to ISN p.55.

Monday, 1/27/2020- B Day

Learning Goal:

Students will be able to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Set up NEW Table of Contents.
  2. Begin Sound Waves Unit Cover Page– ISN p.53
  3. State of Matter Changes HyperDoc on Google Classroom- Yellow EXPLORE section-
      • Check out what happens to neon, argon, oxygen, & water when you change the temperature. You can change the temperature by sliding the switch up or down. (You can also change the thermometer from K to C using the dropdown menu.)
      • What effect does heat energy have on the movement of the particles of matter?
      • Do you notice the matter changing state?
      • What happened for the matter to go from one state to another?
      • Can you pick out each state of matter?
      • Did the change happen gradually or all at once?
    • Print out the handout, complete the data tables, and answer the questions.
    • Before moving onto Explain, bring your lab handouts to Mrs, Vigliotti to show her what you have explored about heat energy and pressure and the effect they have on changes of state.
