Friday, 12/13/19- B Day

Focus Question:

What is the difference between warmer and colder substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Food Coloring Lab p.47″ (Right Side). Head p.47 properly with “Food Coloring Lab–12/13/19.”
  2. Science Friday– Where’s the Octopus?
  3. Investigation– Food Coloring Lab- Turn and Talk- What if we only had a cup of plain hot or cold water–do you think there are particles moving around that we cannot see? What could we do to see them? Set up ISN p.47. Review materials, procedures, & science safety. Remind students to make their observations as soon as possible after adding food coloring! Conduct lab and draw what you observe on ISN p.47. Then respond to the writing prompt. Predict what a cup of room temperature water will look like with food coloring. Draw your prediction on ISN p.48. Test & record observations on ISN p.48 for a cup of room temperature water. Tape “Hot vs Cold” handout as a flip page to ISN p.47.

Wednesday, 12/11/19- A Day- Block Schedule- Periods 1, 3, 5, & 7

Focus Question:

What is the difference between warmer and colder substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Heat/Cold Analysis p.44″ (Left Side). Head p.44 properly with “Heat/Cold Analysis–12/11/19.”
  2. Review Data Analysis/Conclusions– What patterns do you notice in the data? What patterns do you notice about the final temperature measurements? What happens when you increase the temperature difference between the water inside the cup and outside the cup? Tape “Data Set and Analysis: Heat or Cold Across the Cup Wall” handout as a flip page to ISN p.44.
  3. Initial Ideas & Predictions– Hot vs Cold- Work with your partner to answer the questions on the “Hot vs Cold- Initial Ideas & Predictions” handout.
  4. Video Demonstration– Set up ISN p.47 with a Notice and Wonder T-chart. Watch the “Peppermint Candy in Different” video. Record what you notice and wonder on the chart.

Monday, 12/9/19- A Day

Focus Question:

How does the temperature of a substance on one side of a wall affect the temperature of a substance on the other side of the wall?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Heat/Cold Effect p.45″ (Right Side). Head p.45 properly with “Heat/Cold Effect–12/9/19.”
  2. Write-Pair-Share– On ISN p.45, write your answers to the following questions, pair with a partner to discuss your ideas, and share with the class: How is light related to the original phenomenon of our iced drink warming up? What other ideas did we have for things that could cause the drink to warm up? How would changing the temperature of the air outside the cup affect the temperature of the water inside the cup?
  3. Investigation– Water Bath Lab- Determine investigation question and dependent & controlled variables. What do you expect to happen in each test condition?
  4. Data Analysis/Conclusions– What patterns do you notice in the data? What patterns do you notice about the final temperature measurements? What happens when you increase the temperature difference between the water inside the cup and outside the cup?
  5. Exit Ticket– Look at the images of the hot & iced cups of tea. The hot cup of tea has a lot of ” hot” and the iced cup of tea has a lot of “cold.” On a notecard, model what you think it looks like when zoomed into the particles that make up the teas. What would be similar? What would be different?

Tuesday, 11/26/19- B Day

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.
