Question:

How can a substance be both a liquid and a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and open to page 33.
  2. Initial Model/Explanation- In your cooperative table group, share your ideas about how a substance can be both a liquid and a solid. Come to a group consensus to draw a group model of the oobleck phenomenon on a piece of easel paper.
  3. Gallery Walk– Count off by the number of groups. All of the 1’s go to poster 1, 2’s go to poster 2, and so on. Each group will have a person who was from the group that made the model. Show your model and explain all the elements of the model. As a class, find similarities and differences and record these on the handout. If something is repeated several times, that is important!
  4. Identify Related Phenomena (Write-Pair-Share)– Think of other times when matter behaved in unexpected ways. Write down on ISN p.34 a brief description of other examples of matter a substances changing form. Try to come up with ones that make you wonder why/how it happened.

Question:

How can a substance be both a liquid and a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Oobleck Model p.34” (Left Side). Head page 34 properly with “Oobleck model-12/12/17.”
  2. Initial Model/Explanation- Set up ISN p.34. Watch the phenomenon again carefully. Also check out this MythBusters and this experiment. How can the oobleck be both a liquid and a solid? On the white paper, draw your ideas of what you think is happening when the liquid becomes solid and/or the solid becomes liquid.
