Thursday, 2/1/18- A Day

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

Question:

How does temperature affect the particles in a gas?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Particles in Gas -p.45” (Right Side). Head page 45 properly with “Particles in Gas- 2/1/18.”
  2. Demonstration- Basketball and Compressed Air- How do these demonstrations show that gas is matter? Answer questions 1 & 2 on handout.
  3. Investigation- How does temperature affect the particles in a gas? On ISN p.45, determine the experimental variables and a hypothesis for the key question. Read procedure on handout. Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Review Table Group Member Responsibilities. Begin Lab! Draw a picture of your observations in the space below questions 4 & 5 and answer What Did You Observe? questions #4 & 5.

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 42-43.
  2. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Particles in Solid on ISN pages 42-43.
  3. Anchoring Model/Explanation– How can the oobleck be both a liquid and a solid? What did we figure out about the effect of temperature on the movement of particles in a solid with our investigation of the solid metal ball and ring ? How do you think this relates to how oobleck works? Add what we figured out about liquid and solid matter to our model of oobleck.
  4. Period 3- Gallery Walk- You will have 3 minutes to observe each model. As a group, write feedback on 3 sticky notes, one for each prompt:
    3 prompts:
    This model is effective because…(positive feedback)
    Did you consider…(constructive feedback)
    Something I’ve seen in other models is…/Something unique to your model is…
    This is an active investigation, but remember to use inside voices. Once 3 minutes is up and the timer rings, your group will rotate, clockwise, to the next station. This procedure continues until groups have visited all stations and return to the station at which they started. 

 

Tuesday, 1/30/18- A Day- Delayed Opening

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 42. On the slip of paper, draw a model of the atoms in a solid after it has been heated.
  2. Complete Scientific Language Notecard– Make a Scientific Language Notecard for the key word atom. Tape Scientific Language Notecard as a flip to ISN p.43. Enter the key word atom in the Index.
  3. Investigative Phenomenon– Why do bridges have flexible connections?– Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of atoms in a solid in the metal ball and ring demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening to the road on the bridge. Knowing what you do about how solids act when they are heated and cooled, why do you think they put flexible connections in the road on a bridge? Tape your model as a flip page to p.42.
  4. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Particles in Solid on ISN pages 42-43.

Monday, 1/29/18- B Day

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to pages 42-43. Discuss with your cooperative table group:How does temperature affect the particles in a solid? How are the particles in a solid the same as particles in a liquid? How are they different?
  2. Model/CER– Complete ISN p.42. Complete the model of the atoms in the metal ball at room temperature and after it has been heated. Complete the CER- claim about whether temperature affects the atoms in a solid, evidence from the ball and ring demonstration, and reasoning about how the demonstration supports the claim.
  3. Scientific Language Notecard– Make a Scientific Language Notecard for the key word atom. Tape Scientific Language Notecard as a flip to ISN p.43. Enter the key word atom in the Index.
  4. Investigative Phenomenon– Why do bridges have flexible connections?– Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of atoms in a solid in the metal ball and ring demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening to the road on the bridge. Why do you think the volume of water increases when the water is heated? Tape your model as a flip page to p.42.

Friday, 1/26/17- A Day

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your Demonstration handout with questions 3-5. Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Particles in Solid- p.42” (Left Side). Open your notebook to page 42 and head it properly with “Particles in Solid- 1/25/18.”
  2. Science FridayIs Pedigree What It’s Cracked Up to Be? and Vox video- The World Is Poorly Designed, But Copying Nature Helps
  3. Demonstration Investigation– How does temperature affect the particles in a solid?  Answer questions 3-5 on the Demonstration handout. Trim and tape the demonstration handout as a flip page to ISN p.43.
  4. Model– Set up ISN p.42. Draw a model of the atoms in the metal ball at room temperature and after it has been heated based on your observations of the metal ball and ring.
  5. Claim/Evidence/Reasoning (CER)- On ISN p.42, make a claim about whether temperature affects the atoms in a solid. Support your claim with evidence and reasoning. Observe animation of heating and cooling a solid to help your reasoning.
