Lesson Question

What factors affect the motion of a rocket?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down your Home Learning tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Laws of Motion Notes p.79 (Right Side). Head page 79 properly with “Newton’s Laws of Motion-Notes-6/4/19.”
  2. Driving Question Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pgs. 70-71 for the Friction lab.
  3. Video SegmentsForce and Motion Study Jam, Friction PhET, Friction & Heat: the Science of Speed, Science of the Winter Olympics: Science Friction
  4. Scientific Language Key Word/Notes– Use the advanced organizer to take notes from the reading on Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion. Notice the following scientific language keywords: gravitational force, gravitational acceleration, mass, weight, Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion. Record the same terms and page numbers in the Index in the back of your ISN. Tape the advanced organizer to ISN p.79.

Thursday, 4/4/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Lesson Question:

What happens when objects collide? How can we design a crash protection device to absorb enough energy during a car crash to save lives?

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- “Performing Crash Tests p.61” (Right Side). Head page 61 properly with “Performing Crash Tests-Field Assignment-4/4/19.”
  2. Field Assignment- Performing Crash Tests– Introduce the Field Assignment. Set up ISN p.61. Watch the Expedition 2 Field Assignment Car 1 & Car 2 videos. As you watch, you may pause the video or rewatch it as much as you need. Record your observations of the Car 1 & Car 2 collisions in the T-chart on ISN p.61. Using your observations, fill in the Venn Diagram on ISN p.61 with differences in the ways the cars react to the collision written in either the circle for Car 1 or the circle for Car 2. Then fill in similarities in the ways the cars reacted in the overlapping part of the circles. Discuss with your group and answer the question on ISNp.61: What could be causing differences?
  3. Putting Pieces Together– Take stock- Identify and consolidate ideas you have figured out across your investigations about motion. Put pieces together- Come to a consensus on how the pieces explain what happens when objects collide. Develop a public representation of how the pieces fit together.
  4. Educational VideoUnderstanding Car Crashes- It’s Basic Physics

Lesson Question:

If speed has an effect on the impact of collisions, what happens if an object changes speed?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Write your name on the piece of paper and draw what a graph of distance vs time would look like in the following scenario: A teenager stopped and checked her phone. Then looked up and ran down the street toward a friend. Then stood still to show her a video. Then walked back with her friend to where she started.
