Thursday, 4/23/19- B Day- NGSS Test- Block Schedule Period 8 (test), 4, 6, & 2

Lesson Question:

How are the laws of motion and forces used to plan and execute space missions like the Mars Curiosity Rover?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “DQST p.70″ (Left Side), “DQST p.71” (Right Side), “DQST p.72” (Left Side), and “DQST p.73” (Right Side).
  2. Identify Related Phenomena/Write-Pair-Share– Where else does this happen? Think of other times when you experienced falling and landing objects. WRITE a brief description of times you can think of when you observed falling objects on ISN p.68. Try to come up with ones that make you wonder why/how it happened. PAIR with your table partner to share your related phenomena and be prepared to SHARE an example or two with the class for the Class Record of Related Phenomena.
  3. Develop Questions/Driving Question Board– What do we need to figure out to explain all of this? Brainstorm “What We Wonder” questions about falling & landing objects and make a list of those questions on ISN p.68. For each of your observations on ISN p.69, think about a question that you can investigate to help you better understand it. Choose the most compelling or interesting question from ISN p.68 and write it big and bold on a notecard using a marker. Write your initials and period number in pencil on the front corner of the card. Bring your card to the scientists’ circle. Read your question and post it on the Driving Question Board (DQB). Explain how it is related to another question on the board.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)– Set up the DQST on ISN pages 70-73 for the driving question: How are the laws of motion and forces used to plan and execute space missions like the Mars Curiosity Rover?

Tuesday, 4/2/19- B Day

Lesson Question:

What role does mass and velocity play in collisions?

Learning Tasks:

    1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Examples p.58” (Left Side). Head page 59 properly with “Momentum-Examples-4/2/19.”
    2. Momentum Examples– How will the vehicles react in the following situations? 1. A large truck is stopped on road and a small car hits it from behind. 2. A small car is stopped and hit from behind by a large truck. 3. Two cars of equal mass moving at same speed collide head to head. Pair with your partner to discuss each situation and write a description of how the vehicles will react on ISN p.58. Be prepared to share with the class.
    3. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pgs. 50-51 for the Momentum lab.
