Friday, 3/4/16- B Day

Learning Objective:

To determine whether a liquid will sink or float in water by comparing its density to the density of water.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Write down two things that you have learned about density; Share what you have learned about density with your cooperative table group/quiz each other about density
  2. Assessment- Density Quiz
  3. Science Friday- Oarfish: The Ultimate Fish Tale and No Strain, No Gain: Filter Feeding Mantas

Thursday, 3/3/16- A Day

Learning Objective:

To determine whether a liquid will sink or float in water by comparing its density to the density of water.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Sinking & Floating Liquids Explanation p.68” (Left Side); Head page 68 properly with “Sinking & Floating Liquids-Explanation-3/3/16.”
  2. Review HW– Questions 7-10 on Take It Further handout/Collect any more simulation handouts
  3. Notebook– Tape the homework Explain It With Atoms & Molecules/Take It Further handout with Questions 6 and 7-10 onto page 68 and the class work Demonstration handout with Questions 1-3 and 5 onto page 69. For both handouts, do not trim and be sure that the back can be seen when taped to the page.
  4. Understanding Connections- Write an Understanding Connections statement on the sinking or floating of liquids on a Post-It note and stick it to the Understanding Connections pages p.60-61 of your science notebook.
  5. Advance OrganizerMass, Volume, & Density Science of NHL Hockey, Volume & Density Eureka, and Buoyancy Eukeka video segments

Homework:

STUDY- Density Quiz tomorrow, 3/4

Wednesday, 3/2/16- B Day

Science Class will meet in the computer lab in room A-3/A-5

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how the concept of density relates to an object’s mass and volume.
  • Explain how objects of similar mass can have differing volume, and how objects of similar volume can have differing mass.
  • Explain why changing an object’s mass or volume does not affect its density (ie, understand density as an intensive property).
  • Measure the volume of an object by observing the amount of fluid it displaces.
  • Identify an unknown material by calculating its density and comparing to a table of known densities.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out the Density PhET simulation handout; Work out the following word picture brain teaser.
  2. Visual- Density PhET Simulation- Why do objects like wood float in water? Does it depend on size? Create a custom object to explore the effects of mass and volume on density. Can you discover the relationship? Use the scale to measure the mass of an object, then hold the object under water to measure its volume. Can you identify all the mystery objects? Go to our Google Classroom to follow the link to the simulation and to print out a student copy of the questions.

Homework:

  • Answer questions 7-10 on Take It Further handout
  • STUDY- Density Quiz on Friday, 3/4

 

Tuesday, 3/1/16- A Day

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Go to our science class in Google Classroom. Read the announcement and follow the link to the Density PhET simulation; Play around with the simulation. What can you do? What happens? Talk about what you find with your partner. Share with the class all the things you found that you can do with the simulation.
