Friday, 5/11/18- B Day- SBAC (7th Grade) Schedule- 5, 4, 7, 6, 2, 3, & 1

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- What is Motion?

Learning Objective:

Students will understand that motion is relative to a reference point and the difference between distance and displacement.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Science FridayHurricane in a Box
  2. Educational Game– The Fast and the Curious- Use the link below to get to the game The Fast and the Curious in the JASON Project website. Take a few laps around the racetrack behind the wheel of the Argorado, JASON’s fastest race car. Then, see what the speed and velocity graphs look like for your race! After you have finished, DO NOT CLOSE YOUR GAME. Answer the questions about your results in the worksheet below. Use the Speed and Velocity graphs to answer the questions.

  3. Unit Cover Page– On ISN p.67, create a cover page for the unit on A Universe of Motion.
    • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
    • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
    • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing.

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Expedition Introduction

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- We are starting an expedition on motion with a scientist from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. With your partner, discuss the following questions: What is motion? Why is it important to know the science of motion? In what types of careers might knowledge about motion be important?
  2. Educational VideoUnderstanding Car Crashes: It’s Basic Physics! While watching the video, complete the Video Concept Organizer. Then, answer the Video Discussion Questions.

Monday, 5/7/18- B Day- SBAC (7th grade) Schedule- 6, 5, 4, 7, 2, 3, & 1- Maker Monday

Learning Objective:

  • Students will define their audience, create an audience survey, and display the results of the survey in a graph

* Lesson today from John Spencer’s The Creative Classroom. Check it out!

Learning Tasks:

  1. Maker Monday– Phase 1: Look, Listen, & Learn– Divide your questions so that each member of your group has one question and write your question in your Survey Question organizer. Turn your question into a multiple choice question by using the table format in your Survey Question organizer.
  2. COMPLETE Final Model/Explanation- Watch the phenomenon again carefully. Also check out this person floating in the Dead Sea, these large floating ducks, and floating lemons but sinking limes. What determines whether something sinks or floats? On the white paper, draw your ideas of what you have learned is happening when something sinks or floats.
  3. COMPLETE Self Reflection for the Unit on Density– Refer to page 8 in your ISN for directions on how to write a Self-Reflection. Use the Google Doc in Google Classroom to type your responses in the light grey boxes for each of the steps.

Home Learning-

  • Density Assessment tomorrow 5/8
  • Self Reflection for Unit on Density due tomorrow 5/8
  • Final Model/Explanation due tomorrow 5/8
