Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they are making sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Objects Investigation p.24” (Left Side); Head page 24 properly with “Objects Investigation- 11/14/17.”
  2. Turn & Talk/Stop & Jot– Make a claim based on the results of this investigation to answer the question “Do all objects vibrate back and forth when they are making sound? Work with a partner to write your claim on ISN p.24.
  3. Consensus Scientists’ Circle– What have we figured out about the source of sound that we can add to our model? What have we figured out about the anchoring phenomenon (record making noises as the needle scratched it)? How can we apply the discoveries you made to help explain how the needle and record produce sound?
  4. Conclusion– Write a conclusion on ISN p.24 to answer the question: Apply the discoveries you made to help explain how the needle and record produce sound.

Question:

Are other objects that produce music also moving back and forth when they make sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and open to pages 22 and 23. Get out your Vibration Cause & Effect Model handout.
  2. Class consensus discussion/Review HW– Summarize in words what we showed in our models about vibration (movement & shape changes) of a drum. Share Vibration Cause & Effect Model on handout. Come to a consensus for what we mean when we say an object is vibrating. Add what we figured out about vibration to sound source in initial model.
  3. Scientific Language Notecard- Make a scientific Language Notecard for the key word vibration.
  4. Notebook Work– Tape Scientific Language notecard to ISN p.22. Tape Vibration Cause & Effect Model handout as flip page to ISN p.22. Tape any extra writing as flip page to ISN p.23.

ISN’s are due! 🙂 Per. 6- today, Per 3 & 7- tomorrow

Wednesday, 11/1/17- A Day

Question:

Are other objects that produce music also moving back and forth when they make sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Instruments Investigation p.22” (Left Side); Head page 22 properly with “Instruments Investigation- 11/1/17.”
  2. Complete Investigation Observe slow motion video of instruments (guitarsnare drumtuning fork) being struck/plucked & record observations in data table.
  3. Turn & Talk/Stop & Jot: Write the answers to the following questions below the Data Table on ISN p.23: What similarities did you notice between how each of these object moved? Why do you think all these objects continued to move the way they did, even after the thing that initially pushed/pulled on them was no longer touching it?
  4. Class consensus discussion– Describe some of the shape changes & motion changes that you observed in the instruments. Come to a consensus for what we mean when we say an object is vibrating. Vibration Cause and Effect Models on handout- Construct first model together as a class, and apply the model to a guitar or a tuning fork individually.

Home Learning:

  • Complete individual model of guitar or tuning fork on handout.
  • ISN’s are due! 🙂 Per. 4- today, Per.6- tomorrow, Per 3 & 7- Fri.

Wednesday, 10/25/17- B Day

Question:

What does the record look like up close?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and open to page 20. Read your conclusion on page 20 to your group.
  2. Model/Consensus Circle– Add what we observed about the surface of the record and the interaction of the needle and how it was related to sound to the class model.
  3. Next Steps– How might what we figured out about the record playing sound be related to other sound source experiences? Set up ISN p.20 with the following questions: Do you think other objects that produce music also move back and forth when they produce sound? (Write-Pair-Share) How might we go about investigating this question further? (Write-Pair-Share)
