Friday, 1/31/2020- A Day

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents- “Related Phenomena p.56 (Left Side). Head p.56 with “Related Phenomena-1/31/2020.”
  2. Science Friday– Nothing to Sneeze At
  3. Share & compare models of how the speaker makes the window move. Record your ideas in a Similarities/Differences T-chart on ISN p.54.
  4. Build an initial consensus model of how the speakers make the window move. Record the class’s initial consensus model on ISN p.54.
  5. Brainstorm related phenomena– Where have you seen something like this? Record your ideas on ISN p.56.

Focus Question:

How does a sound source make something like this happen?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Initial Model p.54 (Left Side). Head p.54 with “Initial Model-1/30/2020.”
  2. Initial Model– Yesterday, we made a lot of noticings of what’s happening in the phenomenon of a car’s speaker making a faraway window move. We seem to
    agree on what is happening in the video, but it sounds like we have some different ideas about how the speaker is making the window move. Develop & draw an initial model on the template handout that might explain the question, “How does the sound coming from one thing (like the speaker) make another thing far away (like the window) move?” Show what’s happening at a zoomed-in scale at three places: at the surface of the speaker, in the air between the speaker and the window, and at the surface of the window. Use pictures, symbols, and labels to represent what you can’t see. Use the lines below each model to write a short caption explaining what’s happening in your model. Tape your initial model as a flip page to ISN p.55.

Develop & draw an initial model on the template handout how you might explain the question, “How does the sound coming from one thing (like the speaker) make another thing far away (like the window) move?” Show what is happening in each of the three places indicated. Show what’s happening at a zoomed-in scale at three places: at the
    surface of the speaker, in the air between the speaker and the window, and at the surface of the window. There might be points where you need to show something they can’t see. You can use pictures, symbols, and labels to represent these components. Use the lines below each model to write a short caption explaining what’s happening in their model. Tape your initial model as a flip page to ISN p.55.

Thursday, 11/7/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

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- “Initial Model” p.32 (Left Side). Head p.32 properly with “Initial Model- 11/7/19.″
  2. Investigation– Cup Lid 2- Develop a new plan by recording variables and procedures on “Procedure: Measuring Changes in Mass in the Cups” handout. Make predictions by completing the first row in the data table on the handout- “Do you think the amount of matter in this system will change over 5 minutes’ time? Review how & where to record data. Review science safety precautions. Carry out Cup Lid Lab 2. Pool the class data by calculating averages and recording them on the data table in the handout. Analyze the data & make claims by completing the “Making Sense” section of the handout: “Which system lost mass? Matter has mass. So what matter may have left the system(s) that lost mass?” Have a Making Sense Discussion. Record the definitions of Open System and Closed System on ISN p.33. Tape the handout as a flip page to ISN p.33.
  3. Initial Model– Use the handout “Initial Model of Mass Loss in the Cup with No Lid” to develop an individual model that would answer the question: What is happening to the liquid water that can explain why the mass of the cup system decreases over time? Read the directions together. Use the space to develop your model and answer the prediction question.
