# Thursday, 5/30/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated as a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you watch the rest of us do science.

Lesson Question:

How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?

2. Investigation– Friction- Set up ISN p.77 with lesson question dependent variable, independent variable, & constants (controlled variables). Review procedure. Set up Data Table on ISN p.77. Review lab safety expectations & cooperative table group member responsibilities. Conduct the experiment and record data in the data table on ISN p.77 (cooperative table groups). Trim & tape procedure as a flip page to ISN p.77

# Tuesday, 5/28/19- B Day- NGSS Schedule Periods 1, 3, 2, 4, 5, 6, & 7

Lesson Question:

How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?

2. Video/Scientific Language Key Word/Notes– Watch “Expedition 3: Fundamental Forces” to meet Kobie Boykins, a mechanical engineer at NASA. Record the lesson question on ISNp.75: “How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?” Set up ISN p.75 to record the definitions of the following scientific language keywords: force, net force, & friction. Record the same terms and page numbers in the Index in the back of your ISN. On ISN p.75, take notes on the reading.

# Friday, 5/24/19- A Day

Lesson Question:

How are the laws of motion and forces used to plan and execute space missions like the Mars Curiosity Rover?

2. Science FridayThe Giant Squid’s Biggest Mystery
3. Observations from Mars Rovers– Set up ISN p.74 with the following two questions: A. What did you observe about the falling and landing of the robot rovers? B. What did each robotic rover tell us about Mars? Make a T-chart to compare the two groups of rovers: Spirit and Opportunity and Curiosity. Watch the video The Curious Life of a Mars Rover, and record your observations about the Spirit and Opportunity rovers and the Curiosity rover on ISN p.74, using the questions above as a guide.

# Thursday, 4/23/19- B Day- NGSS Test- Block Schedule Period 8 (test), 4, 6, & 2

Lesson Question:

How are the laws of motion and forces used to plan and execute space missions like the Mars Curiosity Rover?
