Lesson Question

How is energy getting into the cup, if not from collisions with air?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open to page 42. Check your data table. What did you figure out from the data? Did you figure out how to minimize energy transfer by blocking waves from carrying energy into the cup?
  2. Blocking Energy Investigation– Summarize what you did and figured out on poster for curated gallery walk. Poster should include the following elements: 1.) Question at the top 2.) Description of experiment 3.) Copy of data table 4.) What you figured out from the data. You do not need to copy all procedures & materials onto the poster. You are encouraged to draw diagrams to illustrate what you did and what you figured out.
  3. Gallery Walk– Walk from poster to poster as a whole group. At each poster, each group will spend two minutes presenting their poster and two minutes asking questions. Discuss the following questions: What did we figure out from this experiment about the movement of energy? Did these results match your predictions? What surprised you about these results? Which condition resulted in the greatest amount of energy being transmitted into the cold drink? Why do you think that is?
  4. Video Segment- Heat Transfer- Crash Course
  5. Blocking Energy Diagram– On a separate piece of paper, draw the diagrams shown on the board.

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

How is energy getting into the cup, if not from collisions with air?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do NowGet out your ISN and open to page 42. Check your data table. Have you filled in the times on row 1? Did you fill in the conditions in the first column?
  2. Blocking the Energy Investigation– Review Data Table and revise the group procedure, if necessary. Copy the procedure on ISN p.42. Before beginning lab, review Science Safety Regulations and complete Lab Safety Checklist- Before You Begin. Also review Group Member Responsibilities. Carry out the investigation according to the procedures you developed. Calculate the temperature change over the time period of the investigation for each condition. Record your results in your notebooks. Discuss: What can you figure out from the data? Did you answer the investigation question?

Lesson Question

How is energy getting into the cup, if not from collisions with air?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open to page 43. Read the definition of Radiation. What does radiation have to do with getting energy into the cup?
  2. Scientists’ Circle– What are our ideas about radiation? How does radiation help us understand how energy is getting into the cup? So we think that invisible waves called radiation might be carrying energy into the cup and then the energy is moving into the drink through particle collisions (conduction). If we want to minimize energy transfer into the cold drink, we will need to figure out how to block those invisible waves. What procedure did your group come up with for the investigation?
  3. Blocking the Energy Investigation– Work in a group to design an investigation to test the question and conduct your investigation idea, given the constraints on materials. What are some important considerations when designing an experiment? Turn these considerations into a set of procedures for your group. Record your procedures on a master sheet. Copy your procedure on ISNp.42 before turning it in. Then draw a data table below your procedure. Fill in the column headings with the times that you will be checking the temperature in the cups. Fill in the row headings with the condition(s) that you will be testing. Your data table should match the procedures.

Lesson Question

How is energy getting into the cup, if not from collisions with air?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Open your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Blocking Energy Investigation p.42” (Left Side). Head p.42 properly with “Blocking Energy Investigation 1/11/19.”
  2. Science FridayWhat’s So Cool About Frozen Water?
  3. Lamp Analogy Map– On the “Demonstration: The Lamp” student handout, relate the physical model of the lamp to the phenomenon of the Sun in space. Fill in the first row as a class, and then work with your partner to complete the other rows. Then, tape the handout as a flip page to ISN p.43.
  4. Blocking the Energy Investigation– Set up ISN p.42. Record the question: “How can we minimize energy transfer by blocking waves from carrying energy into the cup?” Then below the question, record ideas that you have of investigations that you can do to test that question. Next, work in a group to design an investigation to test the question and conduct your investigation idea, given the constraints on materials. What are some important considerations when designing an experiment? Turn these considerations into a set of procedures for your group. Record your procedures on a master sheet to turn in. On ISN p.42, draw a data table. Fill in the column headings with the times that you will be checking the temperature in the cups. Fill in the row headings with the condition(s) that you will be testing. Your data table should match the procedures.
