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?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Friction Investigation p.77 (Right Side). Head page 77 properly with “Friction-Investigation-5/29/19.”
  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?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Friction Notes p.75 (Right Side). Head page 75 properly with “Friction-Notes from Reading-5/28/19.”
  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?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- Life on Mars p.74 (Left Side). Head page 74 properly with “Life on Mars-Notes from Video-5/24/19.
  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?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “DQST p.70″ (Left Side), “DQST p.71” (Right Side), “DQST p.72” (Left Side), and “DQST p.73” (Right Side).
  2. Identify Related Phenomena/Write-Pair-Share– Where else does this happen? Think of other times when you experienced falling and landing objects. WRITE a brief description of times you can think of when you observed falling objects on ISN p.68. Try to come up with ones that make you wonder why/how it happened. PAIR with your table partner to share your related phenomena and be prepared to SHARE an example or two with the class for the Class Record of Related Phenomena.
  3. Develop Questions/Driving Question Board– What do we need to figure out to explain all of this? Brainstorm “What We Wonder” questions about falling & landing objects and make a list of those questions on ISN p.68. For each of your observations on ISN p.69, think about a question that you can investigate to help you better understand it. Choose the most compelling or interesting question from ISN p.68 and write it big and bold on a notecard using a marker. Write your initials and period number in pencil on the front corner of the card. Bring your card to the scientists’ circle. Read your question and post it on the Driving Question Board (DQB). Explain how it is related to another question on the board.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Set up the DQST on ISN pages 70-73 for the driving question: How are the laws of motion and forces used to plan and execute space missions like the Mars Curiosity Rover?
