Thursday, 11/14/19- A Day- Early Dismissal Block Schedule

Focus Question:

Where does the water on the outside of the cold cup system come from?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s home learning task in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Water Droplet Investigation” p.37 (Right Side). Head p.34 properly with “Water Droplet Investigation- 11/14/19.″
  2. Turn and Talk– Observe the ice-cold water in the clear plastic cup with a lid. Not a lot of water particles are escaping from the top, but we’ve noticed water droplets formed on the outside of the cup. Where do you think the water droplets come from?
  3. Investigation– Brainstorm ways to test the water droplet source with a Write-Pair-Share on ISNp.37. Read through the procedures for Part A of the “Water Droplet Investigation” handout. Start Part A of the investigation and record starting mass. Record predictions on Part A. Read through the procedures for Part B of the Water Droplet Investigation handout. Start Part B of the investigation. Record predictions for Part B. Return to the Part A setup and record the final mass in the Data Table. Complete observations for Part A. Return to Part B and wipe the outside of the cups with a white tissue. Complete observations for Part B. Work on Analysis and Conclusions Questions with your partner. Whole class building understandings discussion- where have we seen this phenomenon happen before? What conditions were present for it to happen? Summarize patterns across experiences on chart paper. Tape “Water Droplet Investigation” handout as a flip page to ISN p.37.

Home Learning:

Complete “Self-Reflection on My Learning In Science (MP1)”- Assignment #007 in Google Classroom due tomorrow 11/15

Tuesday, 2/27/18- A Day

Question:

What causes heat energy to be transferred? How do changes in heat energy affect particle motion, temperature, & states of matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- You wake up and you notice that the grass is all wet, but it didn’t rain the night before. What happened?
    • What is this change of state called? What is the beginning state of matter and what is the ending state? (1 point)
    • How is this affecting the motion of the water particles? (1 point)
    • Is heat energy added or removed? How is the temperature changing? (1 point)
  2. Educational Video– Evaporation and Condensation Eureka!
  3. Changes in State HyperDoc– You should be completing the pink Explain Section. Now that you have studied, watched, and read the resources, 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 AND 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:

  1. Observable and unobservable features
  2. The passing of time (ex. before-during-after)
  3. A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?)
  4. Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.

Changes of State Model due at beginning of class tomorow 2/28

Monday, 2/26/18- B Day

Question:

What causes heat energy to be transferred? How do changes in heat energy affect particle motion, temperature, & states of matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Look at thisWhat is happening to the wicked witch of the west? Please explain!
    • What is this change of state called? What is the beginning state of matter and what is the ending state?
    • How is this affecting the motion of her particles?
    • Is heat energy added or removed? How is the temperature changing?
  2. Educational VideosMolecules in Solids/Molecules in Liquids Eureka!

Question:

What causes heat energy to be transferred? How do changes in heat energy affect particle motion, temperature, & states of matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Science Friday- Choc Full of Science
  2. Changes in State HyperDoc– You should be completing the pink Explain Section. Use the resources (infographic, video, and reading) to learn about changes of state. You can use the following links to get to the post in Google Classroom for your class:

Home Learning:

Complete the pink Explain section of the Changes in State HyperDoc (infographic, video, student reading). You should be ready on Monday to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.
