Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 42-43.
  2. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Particles in Solid on ISN pages 42-43.
  3. Anchoring Model/Explanation– How can the oobleck be both a liquid and a solid? What did we figure out about the effect of temperature on the movement of particles in a solid with our investigation of the solid metal ball and ring ? How do you think this relates to how oobleck works? Add what we figured out about liquid and solid matter to our model of oobleck.
  4. Period 3- Gallery Walk- You will have 3 minutes to observe each model. As a group, write feedback on 3 sticky notes, one for each prompt:
    3 prompts:
    This model is effective because…(positive feedback)
    Did you consider…(constructive feedback)
    Something I’ve seen in other models is…/Something unique to your model is…
    This is an active investigation, but remember to use inside voices. Once 3 minutes is up and the timer rings, your group will rotate, clockwise, to the next station. This procedure continues until groups have visited all stations and return to the station at which they started.

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 42. On the slip of paper, draw a model of the atoms in a solid after it has been heated.
  2. Complete Scientific Language Notecard– Make a Scientific Language Notecard for the key word atom. Tape Scientific Language Notecard as a flip to ISN p.43. Enter the key word atom in the Index.
  3. Investigative Phenomenon– Why do bridges have flexible connections?– Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of atoms in a solid in the metal ball and ring demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening to the road on the bridge. Knowing what you do about how solids act when they are heated and cooled, why do you think they put flexible connections in the road on a bridge? Tape your model as a flip page to p.42.
  4. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Particles in Solid on ISN pages 42-43.

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of molecules in a liquid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to pages 36-37. Take the 9 Dot Challenge.
  2. Driving Question Summary Table- Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Effect of Temperature investigation on ISN pages 40-41.
  3. Scientists’ Circle- What did we figure out with our investigation of the food coloring about the effect of temperature on the movement of water molecules? How do you think this relates to how oobleck works? Add what we figured out about the effect of temperature to our model of oobleck. Also, Next Steps– How might what we figured out about effect of temperature be related to other matter experiences or phenomena? What are our next steps? Update the DQB- What question about how matter like oobleck gets its characteristics do we need to address next? Update the Initial Ideas poster- How might we go about investigating how matter like oobleck gets its characteristics?

Driving Question:

How do different types of matter get their characteristics?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Copy down homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to pages 38. Which inner circle is smaller?
  2. Investigative Phenomenon– Water Balloon Popping in Slow Motion– Complete the model to explaining what is happening in the slow motion video of a water balloon popping.Why do you think the water keeps its shape the moment the balloon is popped? Imagine a drop of water hanging from your finger. How is this similar to the water staying together after the balloon is popped?
  3. Driving Question Summary Table- Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Water Investigation on ISN pages 38-39.

Question:

How can a substance be both a liquid and a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “DQST p.36” (Left Side) and “DQST p.37” (Right Side). What do you see in this picture?
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Set up the DQST on pages 36-37 for the DQ How do different types of matter get their characteristics?
  3. Driving Question Board– Bring your question 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. Develop Questions & Next Steps– Bring your investigation ideas to the scientists’ circle. Share your ideas with the class & record them on the Ideas for Investigation poster. We need a place to start on this list. Think about your cooperative table groups explanatory model and decide where it is makes the most sense to start first.
