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.

Lesson Question

Where does the energy come from when a cold drink warms up?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Following the Energy” p.33 (Right Side). Head p.33 properly with “Following the Energy-Investigation-11/15/18.”
  2. Turn and Talk– What did we figure out from the coin game? What are some ways we think energy might be getting into the cup? Can energy from the cup transfer out into the world this way, too? Do we have evidence from our experiences?
  3. Investigation– Set up ISN p.33 with the question “How does the temperature of the water in the cup impact the direction of energy flow?” Work together to come up with a procedure to follow to test the question. Record this procedure on ISN p.33. Draw a Data Table on ISN p. 33 to record your temperature measurements. Before beginning lab, review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Also review Group Member Responsibilities.
  4. Exit Tweet– Where does the energy come from when a cold drink warms up? Use evidence from your investigation to support your ideas.

Lesson Question

What’s happening to the drink as it warms up?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your ISN and open to p.25.
  2. Investigation– What happens to the drink as it warms up? Review procedure- Using cold, room temperature, & warm water, measure 200mL of each and pour into the corresponding beakers. Working in a group of 3, add one drop of the same food coloring to each cup and make observations. Record your observations on ISN p.25 in two ways: (1) visually using colored pencils on a lab diagram and (2) with written descriptions of what you see. Before beginning lab, review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Also review Group Member Responsibilities.
  3. Making Sense Questions– After recording your observations & cleaning up, complete Lab Safety Checklist- After Lab Is Completed. Also, answer the following questions on a flip page to ISN p.25- What did we observe in each cup? What caused the food coloring to spread out? What was different about the cold water and the warm water? What caused these differences?

Thursday, 4/5/18- A Day

Question:

What is the density of water? Do different amounts of matter (like water) have the same density?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Density of Water- p.60” (Left Side). Head page 60 properly with “Density of Water-4/5/18.” Get out the procedure and the analysis questions 2-7.
  2. Investigation– Density of Water- Complete following procedure to collect data. Answer Analysis Questions 2-7. Tape the Activity handout (procedure & data table) as flip page to ISN p.61
  3. Model & CER– Review data as a class. Set up ISN p.60. Model water molecules in the different volumes of water (100mL, 50mL, & 25 mL) and write a Claim Evidence Reasoning regarding why density of any size sample of water is the same. Trim and tape analysis questions as flip page to ISN p.60.
