Tuesday, 5/17/16- B Day

Learning Objective:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Laws of Motion Diagram p.102” (Left Side) and “Laws of Motion Graphic Organizer p.103” (Right Side); Head p. 102 properly with “Newton’s Laws of Motion-Diagram-5/16/16” and p.103 properly  with “Newton’s Laws of Motion-Graphic Organizer-5/16/16.”

Wednesday, 2/3/16- B Day

Learning Objective:

Each pure substance has characteristic physical properties like density (for any bulk quantity under given conditions) that can be used to identify it.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Add to your NEW Table of Contents- Density Cue p.56 (Left Side), Density Cover Page p.57 (Right Side), AND Density Demonstration p.58 (Left Side); Get out your science notebook and head page 58 properly with “Density-Demonstration-2/3/16”
  2. Demonstration– Do cubes of exactly the same size and shape have the same mass? Why does one cube have a greater mass than the other?
  3. Diagram– Copper and Aluminum Atoms in a Cube (Answer Question 1 in cooperative table group)
  4. Animation/Modeling– How to measure volume & mass of a cube (Answer Questions 2-6 in cooperative table group)
  5. Unit Cover page– On p. 57 in your interactive science notebook, create a cover page for the unit on Density.
  • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
  • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
  • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing

Homework:

  • Density Unit Cover page due Friday, 2/5
  • Periods 3 & 6– Science Writing Activity due Friday, 2/5

Friday, 11/6/15- 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- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Molecules Matter -p.30” (Right Side); Head page 30 properly with “Molecules Matter- Diagram & Conclusion- 11/6/15;” Trim Molecules Matter activity sheet with scissors and tape it to page 31 as a flip page.
  2. Science FridayThe Myth of the Woolly Bear
  3. Period 4- Observation investigation– Molecules Matter- Does water hold together well or come apart easily?- Model procedure; While you are observing & investigating the question above, ask your own questions, write them on a sticky note, and put the sticky note on page 26. Periods 2, 6, & 7- Review Questions
  4. Demonstration– Food coloring in water- How do your observations support the idea that water molecules are moving?
  5. Brainstorming Diagrams-On page 30 of your science notebook, draw a model of water on molecular level based on animation and observations.
  6. Educational video segment- Water Balloon Popping in Slow Motion
  7. Understanding Connections Statement- Put the statement on the Understanding Connections pages p.28-29 of your science notebook

Tuesday, 11/18/14
