Thursday, 2/20/2020- A Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

Do all objects vibrate when they make sounds?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents: “Laser & Mirror Demonstration p.66” (Left Side). Head p.66 properly with “Laser & Mirror Demonstration-2/20/20.”
  2. Write-Pair-Share– Answer the following questions on ISN p.67: What do you think would cause differences in how the laser dot moved in the demonstration? How do you think the laser dot will move if we use a speaker to make different sounds? Why?
  3. Laser & Mirror Demonstration– Speaker- As we carry out our investigation, record our data on Part 2 of your handout. Make a claim from evidence on Part 4 of your handout.
  4. Rubric for Modeling Motion of an Object Making Sounds– Work with your partner to use the rubric to evaluate and revise your model.
  5. Notebook Work– Tape “How do instruments move when making sounds (vibrating)?” handout to ISN p.61. Tape “How do objects move when they make sounds?” (laser & mirror) handout as a flip page to ISN p.66.

Home Learning

Readings– due tomorrow, 2/21– Where else are lasers used to detect vibration? (Reading 1: “Engineers Measure Big Ben’s Bell” and “Reading 2: The Vibrating Moon”) Read the two articles and then answer the questions

Monday, 2/10/2020- B Day

Focus Question:

What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “DQST p.62” (Left Side), “DQST p.63” (Right Side), “DQST p.64” (Left Side), “DQST p.65 (Right Side). Do not write a heading on those pages!
  2. Apply Instrument Model Individually– After modeling what happened to the drum once a force was applied to it, individually apply the model to a different instrument (like a guitar) in the next table of your handout. Your models will be collected at the end of class.
  3. Driving Question Summary Table (DQST)- Set up ISN pages 62-65 as DQST pages. In each two page spread, write the driving question for the unit across the top of the pages: “How can a sound make a thing move?” Then divide the right side pages into 3 columns: “Lesson Question,” “What did we do?” and “What did we observe? What happened?” Divide the right side pages into 2 columns: “What do you think caused your observation? (What we learned)” and “How does this help us understand the driving question or phenomenon?” Finally, complete the DQST on pages 62-63 for the Lesson Question: “What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?” Use your investigation observations on ISN pages 58-59 as a resource.

Friday, 2/7/2020- B Day

Focus Question:

What is happening when speakers and other music makers make a sound?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Instrument Model p.61” (Right Side). Head p.61 properly with “Instrument Model-2/7/20.”
  2. Science FridayOarfish: The Ultimate Fish Tale
  3. Co-constructing a Consensus Model of an Instrument Making Sound– How do instruments move when making sounds? As a class, we will use the “How do instruments move when making sounds?” handout to construct a model of how a drum moves when it makes sounds. Each box in the table, from left to right, will represent how the shape of a drum changes over time as it is making sounds.
  4. Apply Instrument Model Individually– After modeling what happened to the drum once a force was applied to it, individually apply the model to a different instrument (like a guitar) in the next table of your handout. Your models will be collected at the end of class.

Thursday, 1/2/20- B Day

Focus Question:

Why do particles move more in hot substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the Table of Contents- “Explanation p.48″ (Left Side). Head p.48 with “Hot & Cold Liquid-Explanation-1/2/20.
  2. Write-Pair-Share– Now we know that liquid particles move around freely at different speeds and that particles in cold liquid move slower, so they have more kinetic energy. And particles in a warm liquid move faster so they have more kinetic energy. Let’s consider gases: On ISN p.48, answer the following questions- Do particles in a gas move around like particles in a liquid? What can we expect if we spray perfume at one side of the room? If it was a hot day, how would the speed at which we smelled the perfume change? What about a very cold day? What about solids? Do solid particles move around like liquid & gas particles?
  3. Model & Explanation– Revise the models on ISN p.46 to include kinetic energy. As a class, construct a model on the model template. Then, construct an explanation below the model using the given sentence frames. Tape the model & explanation as a flip page to ISN p.48.
