Question:

How does temperature affect the particles in a gas?

Learning Tasks:

  1. New Seats!
  2. Animation– Particles of a Gas- What did you notice about the molecules of a gas: Do the molecules of a gas have strong or weak attractions? Are the molecules of a gas randomly or orderly arranged? When the molecules of a gas hit each other, do they normally stick together or bounce off?
  3. Model and Claim/Evidence/Reasoning (CER)– Set up ISN p.44. Draw a model of the air molecules in the bottle when it is placed in hot and cold water based on your observations of the soap bubble on the top of the bottle. Also on ISN p.44, make a claim about whether temperature affects the molecules in a gas like air. Support your claim with evidence and reasoning. Observe animation of heating and cooling gas in a bottle to help your reasoning.
  4. Investigative Phenomenon–Why does a balloon grow when it is heated? Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of molecules in a gas from the investigation of air in a bottle, create a model to explain what is happening to the balloon in the hot car. Observe the animation “Heating Molecules of a Gas” and refine your model. Tape your model as a flip page to p.44.

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Question:

How does temperature affect the particles in a gas?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Particles in Gas -p.44 (Left Side). Head page 44 properly with “Particles in Gas- 2/5/18.”
  2. Investigation- How does temperature affect the particles in a gas? Continue following the procedure to conduct the lab. Draw a picture of your observations in the space below questions 4 & 5 and answer What Did You Observe? questions #4 & 5 on the handout. Complete Lab Safety-After Lab is Completed questions 1-5. Tape two activity handouts (demonstration & lab) as flip pages to ISN p.45.

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated like a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Question:

How does temperature affect the particles in a gas?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Particles in Gas -p.45” (Right Side). Head page 45 properly with “Particles in Gas- 2/1/18.”
  2. Demonstration- Basketball and Compressed Air- How do these demonstrations show that gas is matter? Answer questions 1 & 2 on handout.
  3. Investigation- How does temperature affect the particles in a gas? On ISN p.45, determine the experimental variables and a hypothesis for the key question. Read procedure on handout. Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Review Table Group Member Responsibilities. Begin Lab! Draw a picture of your observations in the space below questions 4 & 5 and answer What Did You Observe? questions #4 & 5.

Tuesday, 12/6/16- WINN/Advisory Day- No Periods 2 & 3

Core Ideas:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.
8:23-9:09 Advisory
9:12-9:58 WINN
10:01-10:47 Period 1
10:50-11:36 Period 4
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5
1:04-1:50 Period 6
1:53-2:45 Period 7

Periods 4 & 6- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Get out your science notebook and open to page 34. What do you see?
  2. Investigative Phenomenon–Why does a balloon grow when it is heated? Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of molecules in a gas from the investigation of air in a bottle, create a model to explain what is happening to the balloon in the hot car. (Write-Pair-Share). Observe the animation “Heating Molecules of a Gas” and refine your model. Trim and tape your model as a flip page to p.34.
  3. Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout

Period 7- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and open to pages 26 & 27. Get out the handout that says “You saw an animation about molecules in solids, liquids, and gases.” It has Question #8.
  2. Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout- Complete Gases
  3. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 26-27 for the Molecules in Solid Activity
  4. Educational video- Matter Compilation: Crash Course Kids
