Question:

How do changes in density cause patterns of ocean currents?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Class Announcement– Let me have your attention, please. I have meetings during most of the day today. Please remember to treat the substitute kindly by being respectful and cooperative and using self-control. Your task is described below. I look forward to hearing from the substitute about your good behavior and attention to your learning task!
  2. Student ReadingOcean Circulations ReadWorks article and Connection Web graphic organizer- Read the article on Ocean Circulations. In the graphic organizer, write the following Connection in the oval in the center: Unequal heating of the Earth and changes in water density cause patterns of ocean currents. While you read the article, record Supporting Details in the rectangles that help illustrate the connection between heating or density to ocean currents. When you are done reading and recording supporting details, write a paragraph on the back of the graphic organizer.

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?
  2. Educational VideosMolecules in Solids/Molecules in Liquids Eureka!

Question:

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

Learning Tasks:

  1. Science Friday- Choc Full of Science
  2. Changes in State HyperDoc– You should be completing the pink Explain Section. Use the resources (infographic, video, and reading) to learn about changes of state. You can use the following links to get to the post in Google Classroom for your class:

Home Learning:

Complete the pink Explain section of the Changes in State HyperDoc (infographic, video, student reading). You should be ready on Monday to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.
