Question:

Do liquids follow the same rules for sinking and floating as solids? Do all liquids have the same density as water?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down your homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook to pages 52-53.
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pgs. 52-53 for the Sinking and Floating Investigations on ISN pgs. 62-65.
  3. Final Model/Explanation- Watch the phenomenon again carefully. Also check out this person floating in the Dead Sea, these large floating ducks, and floating lemons but sinking limes. What determines whether something sinks or floats? On the white paper, draw your ideas of what you have learned is happening when something sinks or floats.

Question:

What is the density of water? Do different amounts of matter (like water) have the same density?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Copy down your homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to pages 52-53. Work on your Voice Finder. Find and answer question 1, then follow the dashed line to each question to think about and answer each one.

Complete Take It Further (Question 9) handout

Tuesday, 4/3/18- A Day

Question:

What is the density of water? Do different amounts of matter (like water) have the same density?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Density of Water p.61” (Right Side). Head page 61 properly with “Density of Water-4/3/18.”
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 52-53 for the Effect of Volume Investigation on ISN pgs. 58-59.
  3. Demonstration– Set up ISN p. 61. There are two identical containers. One is half filled with water and one is filled with only 1 cup. By lifting the containers, which bucket has the most mass of water? Which do you think has water with the most density? Answer questions on ISN p. 61 (Think-Pair-Share).

Thursday, 3/22/18- B Day- Delayed Opening

Question:

What is the relationship between mass and density for objects of equal volume?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down your homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 52-53. Turn to your cooperative table group and discuss the following question: What did we find out about floating or sinking? What did we learn about density from the cube investigation?
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on ISN pgs. 52-53 for the Effect of Mass Investigation on ISN pgs.56-57.
  3. Investigation (except period 3)– What is the relationship between mass and density for objects of equal volume? Use the density of each cube to identify the substance that the cube is made from.
