Thursday, 1/23/19- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Driving Question:

How can containers keep stuff from warming up?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Also, please get out your directions and template for the Final Summative Assessment on the Thermal Energy Transfer Unit- a Scientific Explanation & Model.
  2. Scientific Explanation– Now that you have gotten feedback from a partner and had time to re-think and re-write, you are ready to draw your final model and construct your final explanation. It is due at the end of the block period.
  3. State of Matter Changes Hyperdoc– Green Engage section

Home Learning:

  • Thermal Energy Transfer Scientific Explanation due end of class today 1/23
  • State of Matter Changes Hyperdoc- Green Engage section handout due on FRIDAY, 1/24 at the end of class

Home Learning:

  • Thermal Energy Transfer Scientific Explanation due end of class today 1/22 (per. 1, 3, & 7) or tomorrow 1/23 (per. 4 & 6)
  • State of Matter Changes Hyperdoc- Green Engage section handout due on FRIDAY, 1/24 at the end of class

Friday, 2/8/18- A Day- Wear Red!

Learning Goal:

Students will be able to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now
  2. Science Friday- What is a Flame?
  3. State of Matter Changes HyperDoc on Google Classroom- pink EXPLAIN section-After using the resources above, collaborate with no more than two other students to develop a model on the paper given that describes/explains: the hardening of molten metal OR the “smoke” you see when you breathe in cold air. Your model should feature the following changes: Particle motion, temperature, change of state of matter. Your model should include the following: Observable and unobservable features; The passing of time (ex. before-during-after); A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?); Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.
  4. Public Representations- Making Your Changes in Thinking Visible- Sticky Note Feedback for Models

Thursday, 2/7/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Learning Goal:

Students will be able to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now
  2. State of Matter Changes HyperDoc on Google Classroom- pink EXPLAIN section-After using the resources above, collaborate with no more than two other students to develop a model on the paper given that describes/explains: the liquifying of candle wax OR a puddle drying up in the sun. Your model should feature the following changes: Particle motion, temperature, change of state of matter. Your model should include the following: Observable and unobservable features; The passing of time (ex. before-during-after); A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?); Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.
