ISN’s (science notebooks) due Friday 6/7

Thursday, 5/30/19- B 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 watch the rest of us do science.

Lesson Question:

How does friction influence the amount of force needed to move an object?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Friction Investigation p.77 (Right Side). Head page 77 properly with “Friction-Investigation-5/29/19.”
  2. Investigation– Friction- Set up ISN p.77 with lesson question dependent variable, independent variable, & constants (controlled variables). Review procedure. Set up Data Table on ISN p.77. Review lab safety expectations & cooperative table group member responsibilities. Conduct the experiment and record data in the data table on ISN p.77 (cooperative table groups). Trim & tape procedure as a flip page to ISN p.77

Tuesday, 5/7/19- B Day

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.
