Tuesday, 4/4/17- A Day- Advisory Schedule

Core Ideas:

  • Each atom has a charged sub-structure consisting of a nucleus, which is made of protons and neutrons, surrounded by electrons.
  • The periodic table orders elements horizontally by the number of protons in the atom’s nucleus and places those with similar chemical properties in columns. The repeating patterns of this table reflect patterns of outer electron states.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Protons, Neutrons, Electrons p.71” (Right Side). Head page 71 properly with “Protons, Neutrons, & Electrons-Investigation-4/4/17.”
  2. Investigation– What makes objects attract or repel each other? Review Data Table- Use what you know about charges to explain your observations.
  3. Advanced OrganizerThe science of static electricity TED-Ed video
  4. Graphic Organizer– Introduction handout questions 1-3
  5. Notebook– Trim and tape Introduction to page 71. Tape Activity investigation as a flip page to page 71. Add the following key terms to the Index- Atom, Proton, Neutron, Electron, Nucleus.
  6. Check HW-Unit cover page 67

Homework:

Last day for Density Writing revisions is Friday, 4/7

Wednesday, 12/7/16- B Day

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.

Period 2- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents-“Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.37” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 37 and head it properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Graphic Organizer-12/7/16.” 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. Trim and tape the graphic organizer directly to page 37.

Periods 3, 4, & 6- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now–Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.36” (Left Side) and “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.37” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 36 and head it properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Invent the Quiz-12/7/16” and head page 37 properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Graphic Organizer-12/2/16. Get out the handout that says “You saw an animation about molecules in solids, liquids, and gases.” This is your graphic organizer. (It has Question #8 on it).
  2. Complete Comparison of Particles in Liquids, Solids, & Gases-Questions 8 handout. Trim and tape the graphic organizer to page 37.
  3. Notebook– Set up homework page 36.
  4. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the Summary Table on pages 26-27 for the Molecules in Solid Activity.
  5. Educational videoMatter Compilation: Crash Course Kids

Period 7- Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.36” (Left Side) and “Solids, Liquids, Gases-p.37” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 36 and head it properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Invent the Quiz-12/7/16” and head page 37 properly with “Solids, Liquids, Gases-Graphic Organizer-12/2/16.
  2. Notebook– Trim and tape your graphic organizer on Solids, Liquids, and Gases (#8) directly to page 37. Set up homework page 36.

Homework:

5 Quiz questions and answers on notebook page 36

Tuesday, 5/17/16- B Day

Learning Objective:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Laws of Motion Diagram p.102” (Left Side) and “Laws of Motion Graphic Organizer p.103” (Right Side); Head p. 102 properly with “Newton’s Laws of Motion-Diagram-5/16/16” and p.103 properly  with “Newton’s Laws of Motion-Graphic Organizer-5/16/16.”
  2. Visual Evidence: Graphic Organizer– Newton’s Laws of Motion- Use the following animations and video segments to complete the graphic organizer: Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion TED-Ed, Three Laws of Motion Teacher Tube, Newton’s Laws of Motion Brain POP, & Newton’s Laws of Motion Video Brief
