Thursday, 11/14/19- A Day- Early Dismissal Block Schedule

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- 11/14/19.″
  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.

Tuesday, 11/12/19- B Day

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- “Explain & Predict” p.34 (Left Side). Head p.34 properly with “Explain & Predict- 11/12/19.″
  2. What We Figured Out– Tape this as a Flip Page to ISN p.35.
  3. Formative Assessment– Using Our Model Ideas to Explain & Predict- Introduce the phenomena on the handout by reading the text together. Apply the ideas in the DQST on ISN pages 22-23 and the “What We Figured Out” to answer the questions.

Monday, 11/11/19- A Day

Focus Question:

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

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Evaporation” p.35 (Right Side). Head p.35 properly with “Evaporation- 11/11/19.″
  2. Model– Pass out “Manipulative Mat for a Model of Matter at the Surface of a Liquid” handout and a bag of blue & some yellow chips to each partner. We’re going to develop a model together to show what is happening to the water that explains why the mass of the system decreases and why the water level drops over time. Take one blue chip and place it in the key. Label the chip as the smallest particle of water (in this case, a molecule). Particles are pieces of matter that are too small to see. Lay out the rest of the blue chips as they might look at the surface of the water if we zoomed in. How could you use the chips to show why the mass of the system and the level of the water starts dropping over time. How would you show where the matter is going? Show this with your model. We also need to represent air which is also made of particles but they are more widely spaced apart than in a liquid. Use the yellow chips to update your key and add air above the water.
  3. Scientific Language Key Word/Concept– Add the scientific language keyword/concept, definition, illustration, and examples to ISN p.35.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table– Update the DQST on ISN p.22-23 for the Cup Lid Labs on ISN pgs. 30-33.
