Thursday, 1/30/2020- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Initial Model p.54 (Left Side). Head p.54 with “Initial Model-1/30/2020.”
  2. Initial Model– Yesterday, we made a lot of noticings of what’s happening in the phenomenon of a car’s speaker making a faraway window move. We seem to
    agree on what is happening in the video, but it sounds like we have some different ideas about how the speaker is making the window move. Develop & draw an initial model on the template handout that might explain the question, “How does the sound coming from one thing (like the speaker) make another thing far away (like the window) move?” Show what’s happening at a zoomed-in scale at three places: at the surface of the speaker, in the air between the speaker and the window, and at the surface of the window. Use pictures, symbols, and labels to represent what you can’t see. Use the lines below each model to write a short caption explaining what’s happening in your model. Tape your initial model as a flip page to ISN p.55.

Learning Tasks:

Develop & draw an initial model on the template handout how you might explain the question, “How does the sound coming from one thing (like the speaker) make another thing far away (like the window) move?” Show what is happening in each of the three places indicated. Show what’s happening at a zoomed-in scale at three places: at the
    surface of the speaker, in the air between the speaker and the window, and at the surface of the window. There might be points where you need to show something they can’t see. You can use pictures, symbols, and labels to represent these components. Use the lines below each model to write a short caption explaining what’s happening in their model. Tape your initial model as a flip page to ISN p.55.

Tuesday, 1/28/2020- A Day

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Anchoring Phenomenon p.55 (Right Side). Head p.55 with “Anchoring Phenomenon-1/28/2020.”
  2. Explore Anchoring Phenomenon What do we notice? Make observations of a video of a truck playing loud music. Record what you notice and wonder about the video in the T-chart. Share noticings & wonderings in pairs.
  3. Make observations of a speaker making sounds– What do we notice? From the video, we noticed that the sound source has something to do with a speaker in a truck. Let’s take a closer look at a speaker making sound up close. Record what you notice and wonder about the speaker making sounds on a new T-chart. Keep in mind what the speaker is doing when it makes sound and what is happening while the speaker is making sounds. Then, compare the speaker apparatus to what happened in the truck video on the Comparison organizer.
  4. Initial Ideas Discussion– Build a class record of observations of the video of the truck speaker & the window and the speaker apparatus making sound with a whole class discussion. Tape the T-charts to ISN p.55.

Home Learning:

  • Complete Sound Waves Unit Cover Page ISN p.53 for Friday, 1/31
  • Changes of State HyperDoc- Yellow Explore section- due Wed. 1/29/Thurs. 1/30

Friday, 5/17/19- B Day- SBAC Testing Periods 6 & 7 (Math PT)- Regular Schedule Periods 3, 4, 5, 1, & 2

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Cover Page p.67” (Right Side) and “Mars Rover Anchor Phenomenon p.69 (Right Side). Head page 69 properly with “Mars Rover-Anchor Phenomenon-Observations-5/17/19.”
  2. Science Friday- To See Gulls Anew
  3. Notebook Work– Add Unit Title to Table of Contents- FORCES. Trim and tape Table of Contents to as a flip page to the inside front cover.
  4. Exploring Anchoring Phenomenon/Write-Pair-Share– Watch the following videos of the Curiosity rover’s touchdown on the surface of Mars- one of the most complicated & challenging spacecraft landings attempted by NASA: 7 Minutes of Terror: The Challenges of Getting to Mars- NASA and Mars Rover’s 7 Minutes of Terror- National GeographicWhat do we notice? As you watch, WRITE your observations/what you noticed on ISN p.69. PAIR with your table partner to share your observations with each other and search for things your observations had that were alike and things that were different. SHARE with the full class. A member from each partner will share an observation from his/her discussion. These Initial Observations will be recorded as a class and you should record them on ISN p.69. Also, record on ISN p.69- What kinds of questions must scientists & engineers answer when designing a Mars robotic rover?
