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.
