Focus Question:

How does a lid affect what happens to the liquid in the cup?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Evaporation” p.35 (Right Side). Head p.35 properly with “Evaporation- 11/11/19.″
  2. Model– Pass out “Manipulative Mat for a Model of Matter at the Surface of a Liquid” handout and a bag of blue & some yellow chips to each partner. We’re going to develop a model together to show what is happening to the water that explains why the mass of the system decreases and why the water level drops over time. Take one blue chip and place it in the key. Label the chip as the smallest particle of water (in this case, a molecule). Particles are pieces of matter that are too small to see. Lay out the rest of the blue chips as they might look at the surface of the water if we zoomed in. How could you use the chips to show why the mass of the system and the level of the water starts dropping over time. How would you show where the matter is going? Show this with your model. We also need to represent air which is also made of particles but they are more widely spaced apart than in a liquid. Use the yellow chips to update your key and add air above the water.
  3. Scientific Language Key Word/Concept– Add the scientific language keyword/concept, definition, illustration, and examples to ISN p.35.
  4. Driving Question Summary Table– Update the DQST on ISN p.22-23 for the Cup Lid Labs on ISN pgs. 30-33.

Question:

What causes heat energy to be transferred? How do changes in heat energy affect particle motion, temperature, & states of matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- You wake up and you notice that the grass is all wet, but it didn’t rain the night before. What happened?
    • What is this change of state called? What is the beginning state of matter and what is the ending state? (1 point)
    • How is this affecting the motion of the water particles? (1 point)
    • Is heat energy added or removed? How is the temperature changing? (1 point)
  2. Educational Video– Evaporation and Condensation Eureka!
  3. Changes in State HyperDoc– You should be completing the pink Explain Section. Now that you have studied, watched, and read the resources, collaborate with no more than two other students to develop a model on the paper given that describes/explains: the liquifying of candle wax OR a puddle drying up in the sun AND the hardening of molten metal OR the “smoke” you see when you breathe in cold air. Your model should feature the following changes:
    • Particle motion
    • Temperature
    • Change of state of matter

Your model should include the following:

  1. Observable and unobservable features
  2. The passing of time (ex. before-during-after)
  3. A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?)
  4. Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.

Question:

What causes heat energy to be transferred? How do changes in heat energy affect particle motion, temperature, & states of matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Look at thisWhat is happening to the wicked witch of the west? Please explain!
    • What is this change of state called? What is the beginning state of matter and what is the ending state?
    • How is this affecting the motion of her particles?
    • Is heat energy added or removed? How is the temperature changing?
