Focus Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they make sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowPlease get out your Laser Readings and pass them to your right.
  2. Reading- “How do insects make sounds?”
  3. Observe the slow-motion videos of the night insects and bees and draw and annotate a “comic strip view” of the wings moving and changing shape.

Thursday, 2/20/2020- A Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they make sounds?

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: “Laser & Mirror Demonstration p.66” (Left Side). Head p.66 properly with “Laser & Mirror Demonstration-2/20/20.”
  2. Write-Pair-Share– Answer the following questions on ISN p.67: What do you think would cause differences in how the laser dot moved in the demonstration? How do you think the laser dot will move if we use a speaker to make different sounds? Why?
  3. Laser & Mirror Demonstration– Speaker- As we carry out our investigation, record our data on Part 2 of your handout. Make a claim from evidence on Part 4 of your handout.
  4. Rubric for Modeling Motion of an Object Making Sounds– Work with your partner to use the rubric to evaluate and revise your model.
  5. Notebook Work– Tape “How do instruments move when making sounds (vibrating)?” handout to ISN p.61. Tape “How do objects move when they make sounds?” (laser & mirror) handout as a flip page to ISN p.66.

Home Learning

Readings– due tomorrow, 2/21– Where else are lasers used to detect vibration? (Reading 1: “Engineers Measure Big Ben’s Bell” and “Reading 2: The Vibrating Moon”) Read the two articles and then answer the questions

Tuesday, 2/18/2020- B Day

Focus Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they make sounds?

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: “Laser & Mirror Demonstration p.67” (Right Side). Head p.67 properly with “Laser & Mirror Demonstration-2/18/20.”
  2. Write-Pair-ShareAnswer the following question on ISN p.67: Would you expect any object that makes sounds to move in the same way we saw the musical instruments and speaker move? Why or why not?
  3. Laser & Mirror Demonstration– Drum & Broomstick- We’re going to aim a laser at a mirror that will reflect the laser dot onto the wall so we can see it. Then we will make a loud sound on the table by banging on it. On the handout, “How do objects move when they make sounds?”, make a prediction of the possible outcomes in Part 1. Then, as we carry out our investigation, record our data on Part 2 of your handout. Make a claim from evidence on Part 3 of your handout.

Monday, 2/10/2020- B Day

Focus Question:

What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “DQST p.62” (Left Side), “DQST p.63” (Right Side), “DQST p.64” (Left Side), “DQST p.65 (Right Side). Do not write a heading on those pages!
  2. Apply Instrument Model Individually– After modeling what happened to the drum once a force was applied to it, individually apply the model to a different instrument (like a guitar) in the next table of your handout. Your models will be collected at the end of class.
  3. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)- Set up ISN pages 62-65 as DQST pages. In each two page spread, write the driving question for the unit across the top of the pages: “How can a sound make a thing move?” Then divide the right side pages into 3 columns: “Lesson Question,” “What did we do?” and “What did we observe? What happened?” Divide the right side pages into 2 columns: “What do you think caused your observation? (What we learned)” and “How does this help us understand the driving question or phenomenon?” Finally, complete the DQST on pages 62-63 for the Lesson Question: “What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?” Use your investigation observations on ISN pages 58-59 as a resource.
