Changes of State Quiz on Friday, 1/22/16 (STUDY science notebook pages 42-55)

Wednesday, 12/2/15- A Day

Learning Objective:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner and copy the definitions for the following scientific terms onto the back of the flash-card template: matter, chemistry, molecules/atoms, solid, liquid, gas
  2. Cornell Notes of “Solids, Liquids, and Gases”- Each group presents Cornell notes on section of reading assignment. Each student should write at least the summary of each presentation as a flip page to p.41

Homework:

STUDY- Solids, Liquids, & Gases Quiz tomorrow, 12/3- Review pages 30-41 in your notebook!
