Focus Question:

How does the cup surface affect how light warms up liquids?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN & the “Investigating Light’s Effect on Warming Water” handout. Add to the Table of Contents: “Light Analysis p.42″ (Left Side). Head p.42 properly with “Light Analysis–11/26/19.”
  2. Investigation– Light and Temperature- Share groups’ data with class by writing down your group’s data on a notecard to post on the Class Data Table. Record air temperature around cups and class averages for clear, foil, black, & white cups in your data table on the “Investigating Light’s Effect on Warming Water” handout. Calculate & record the percentages of light transmitted and reflected. Analyze & interpret the class data- Complete question 1- analyze the data and look for patterns. Complete question 2- What do you notice and wonder about how light changes (or does not change) the water temperature in each cup type?

Monday, 11/24/19- A Day

Focus Question:

How does the cup surface affect how light warms up liquids?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open it to page 43. Get out “Investigating Light’s Effect on Warming Up Water” handout.
  2. Investigation– Light and Temperature- Assign 2 groups each to Group A (clear & foil-wrapped cups), Group B (white- and black-painted cups), and Dark (all cups without light). Review setup, procedures, & data tables. After your group takes the temperature, return to your seats. As a full class, collect Light Measurements data (incoming, transmitted, & reflected light). Calculate percentages of light measurements. Then record the “What We Have Figured Out” notes on ISN p.43.

Thursday, 11/14/19- A Day- Early Dismissal Block Schedule

Focus Question:

Where does the water on the outside of the cold cup system come from?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s home learning task in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Water Droplet Investigation” p.37 (Right Side). Head p.34 properly with “Water Droplet Investigation- 11/14/19.″
  2. Turn and Talk– Observe the ice-cold water in the clear plastic cup with a lid. Not a lot of water particles are escaping from the top, but we’ve noticed water droplets formed on the outside of the cup. Where do you think the water droplets come from?
  3. Investigation– Brainstorm ways to test the water droplet source with a Write-Pair-Share on ISNp.37. Read through the procedures for Part A of the “Water Droplet Investigation” handout. Start Part A of the investigation and record starting mass. Record predictions on Part A. Read through the procedures for Part B of the Water Droplet Investigation handout. Start Part B of the investigation. Record predictions for Part B. Return to the Part A setup and record the final mass in the Data Table. Complete observations for Part A. Return to Part B and wipe the outside of the cups with a white tissue. Complete observations for Part B. Work on Analysis and Conclusions Questions with your partner. Whole class building understandings discussion- where have we seen this phenomenon happen before? What conditions were present for it to happen? Summarize patterns across experiences on chart paper. Tape “Water Droplet Investigation” handout as a flip page to ISN p.37.

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.
