Lesson Question:

How can engineers use their understanding of air pressure to make airplanes fly?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents on the Left Side- Score Sheet p.64. Head page 64 properly with Naked Egg Drop-Score Sheet-5/7/19. Tape the score sheet as a flip page to ISN p.64.
  2. Reading Comprehension– “Dynamics of Flight”- Read the introduction and preview the text as a full class. As the text is read aloud for the “gist,” make quick jots of what you notice. Now individually or with a partner, read slowly to clarify information from the quick read and annotate the text. As you find information, record it in your “Four Forces of Fight” organizer.
  3. Investigation– The Paper Tent- Fold a piece of paper (lengthwise) in half and make a paper tent. Place the paper tent on your desk. Predict what will happen when you blow into the tent. Will it appear to get larger, will it remain unchanged, or will it bend down toward the table? Position the straw about 2 inches away from the paper tent so that you will be able to blow a steady stream of air across the surface of the table or desk and through the tent. Observe what happens and complete worksheet. Now blow harder into the straw. Alternately, you can also turn your paper tent upside down and blow through the V-shaped paper. Trim & tape “Fun with Bernoulli” worksheet onto ISN p.63.

Lesson Question

How can engineers use their understanding of air pressure to make airplanes fly?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents on the Left Side- Fun with Bernoulli p.62. Head page 62 properly with Air Pressure- Fun with Bernoulli-5/6/19.

  3. Field Assignment– Performing Crash Tests- Expedition Challenge- Naked Egg Drop

Thursday, 3/28/19- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Remember: As long as you act like a scientist when we do science, you will be treated as a scientist and conduct investigations. If not, you get to watch the rest of us do science.

Lesson Question:

What role does mass and velocity play in collisions?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 59. Write your name on the piece of paper and describe two factors that determine momentum.
  2. Investigation– Momentum- What role does mass and velocity play in collisions? Review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist– Before You Begin. Also, review Group Member Responsibilities.  For each section of the lab, follow directions modeled and given on the board and record data and observations in the handout. Start with Car 1 and record time until the car reaches the barrier. Calculate velocity and momentum. Then use Car 2 (with a 500 g mass) as a “barrier” and record the time it takes for Car 2 to stop & displacement it travels. Repeat this again, this time using Car 1 with a 500 g mass. complete the Reflect and Apply and Journal questions. Also, complete the Lab Safety Checklist-After Lab is Completed.

Lesson Question:

If speed has an effect on the impact of collisions, what happens if an object changes speed? What does this look like on a graph?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning Tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 56. Write your answers to the questions at the bottom of page 56.
  2. Simulation Laboratory InvestigationThe Moving Man: Position, Velocity, Acceleration PhET– Complete the Moving Man PhET simulation laboratory by using the link to get to the simulation, following the directions and completing the tasks on the view-only handout in the Google Classroom post.
