Tuesday, 2/20/18- B Day

All classes will meet in the library to continue work on the Changes in State HyperDoc.

You should be completing the yellow Explore Section and beginning the pink Explain section. In the yellow Explore Section, you have explored how heat energy transfers through conduction in the Heat, Temperature, & Conduction Lab and you have explored how particles in different states of matter respond to changes in heat energy and pressure in the States of Matter PhET Simulation. In the pink Explain section, we will start to use the resources (infographic, video, and reading) to learn about changes of state. Our learning goal is to be able to explain how heat energy changes affect particle motion, temperature, and state of matter.

You can use the following links to get to the post in Google Classroom for your class:

Tuesday, 2/13/18- Thursday, 2/14/18

All classes will meet in the library to work on the Changes in State HyperDoc.

The following message has been posted in Google Classroom:

READ ALL DIRECTIONS BEFORE YOU BEGIN!

*DIRECTIONS*- Based on the investigations that you have been doing on liquid, solid, & gas states of matter, complete the Changes of State Hyperdoc attached. It is view-only and that is all you need. Start with the green section called ENGAGE and then continue to work through each section on your own and at your own rate: EXPLORE (yellow), EXPLAIN (pink), ELABORATE/EXTEND (blue), and EVALUATE (purple). You will show Mrs. Vigliotti your work at the end of each section. You will also complete two models with a collaborative group.

*LEARNING GOALS*- Students will be able to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.

*TIME*- You have one week to complete this HyperDoc. You will be given five class periods to work during class time. The EXPLORE section will take one class period, the EXPLAIN section will take two class periods, the ELABORATE/EXTEND section will take one class period, and the EVALUATE section will take one class period. If you do not finish a particular section on time, you will be expected to complete it outside of class. ALL PARTS OF THE ASSIGNMENT ARE DUE ON THURSDAY, 2/22 AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS.

*TURN-IN PROCESS*- You will check in with Mrs. Vigliotti and show your work at the end of each section. Before you may proceed to the next section, the task must be completed in its entirety. The final models will be handed in at the beginning of class on Thursday, 2/22.

Tuesday, 1/10/16- B Day WINN/Advisory Schedule- No Periods 4 & 5

8:23-9:09 Advisory
9:12-9:58 WINN
10:01-10:47 Period 7
10:50-11:36 Period 6
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 2
1:04-1:50 Period 3
1:53-2:45 Period 1

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner
  2. Advance Organizer– The Water Cycle NSF and Bill Nye The Science Guy Water Cycle video segments
  3. Reading for Information-“What Is the Water Cycle?” USGS Water Science School article
  4. Practice- Answer questions with explanations and models on fogging up a cold window, warm breath in cold air, and evaporation & condensation in the water cycle

Homework:

  • Complete questions 8, 9, 10
  • STUDY pages 38-49- Changes of State Quiz on Friday 1/13

Friday, 1/6/17- B Day

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Evaporation p.42” (Left Side). Open to page 42 and head it properly with “Evaporation-Model-1/6/17.” Solve the following riddle: From what heavy seven-letter word can you take away two letters and have eight left?
  2. Science Friday- A Cure for the Colorblindness Blues
  3. Modeling- On page 42, describe your observations of the wet paper towel by creating a model to explain evaporation. Now create a model to show the effect of increasing the temperature on the rate of evaporation.

Thursday, 1/5/17- A Day

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Evaporation p.43” (Right Side). Open to page 43 and head it properly with “Evaporation-Prediction-1/5/17.” Solve the following riddle: Mary’s father has 4 children. Three are named Nana, Nene, and Nini. So what is the 4th child’s name?
  2. Write-Pair-Share– Answer the following questions on p.40 (Write-Pair-Share): Describe what happens to the particles of a solid when temperature increases. What effect does an increase in temperature have on the state of the solid? Predict what happens to the particles and state of a gas when temperature decreases. Model each question and answer in the States of Matter Basics PhET simulation.
  3. Prediction- On page 43, predict what you think might happen to a wet paper towel by the end of the class. Give other examples of evaporation. Describe evaporation. Add key term to index in science notebook. Look at the paper towels from start of lesson.
