Lesson Question

How do cups made from materials with air in them minimize energy transfer?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Open your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Air vs Liquid Test” p.40 (Left Side). Head p.40 properly with “Air vs Liquid Test- 12/19/18.″
  2. Turn and Talk– Last time we examined materials closely and found some interesting patterns that could help us explain why certain materials are better than others at keeping the drink cold. What was the pattern we observed about the materials that performed best? What was the pattern we observed about the materials that performed the worst?
  3. Demonstration- Air vs Liquid Test– Set up ISN p.40 with the question “How do cups made from materials with air in them minimize energy transfer? Draw the demonstration setup and data table. Record temperature in data table every minute for 5 minutes. Work with your partner to develop an initial explanation for the differences in the data. Write the initial explanation in the space below your data table on ISN p.40.
  4. Brain BreakYet Another Reason to Spike That Eggnog
  5. Individual Model– Remember: the purpose of building an individual model is to gather your initial thinking. Imagine putting the cup of very cold water into something solid at room temperature. Then imagine putting it into a liquid at room temperature. Then imagine keeping it in the room temperature air (gas). Your models need to zoom in to show energy transfer through particle collisions in each of those three examples. Draw your models on the Lesson 7 Student handout.
  6. Notebook Work– Tape the Section B/C/D handout as flip page to ISN p.36. Tape the Lesson 7: Student Handout as flip page to ISN p.40.

Learning Question

How does energy transfer into a cold drink when it warms up?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open to page 34. Turn to your partner and share your individual revised model. Compare and contrast the two models. How are they alike? How are they different?
  2. Educational VideosEureka! Conduction, How Do Wetsuits Keep You Warm?, Can Humans Really Feel Temperature?
  3. Complete Group Model– Look at our class consensus model for how a drink warms up in a regular cup. With your Cold Cup Design Challenge group, model how you now think the drink in the cup is warming up.

Learning Question

How does energy transfer into a cold drink when it warms up?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open to page 34. Read the definition of conduction. Now turn to your partner and give an example of conduction by touching something and it feels hot or cold.
  2. Scientists’ Circle– What have we figured out that will help us answer the unit question- “How can we design a cup to keep a drink cold?” Look back at the questions posted on the Driving Question Board (DQB). What questions can we answer now? Remove a notecard of a question that has been addressed. How was the question addressed? What are we still wondering about the cold drink warming up in the cup? What else do we need to know in order to complete our design challenge? Add any new question to the DQB.
  3. Modeling Hot and Cold– What are some examples of conduction from our own experiences? Think about times you’ve touched something and it feels hot or it feels cold. When you touch something and it feels hot or it feels cold, the particles from the object and the particles of your hand are colliding. What can we say about conduction when something feels hot? How is it different when something feels cold? Let’s model these ideas! On ISN p.37, draw two models to help explain what is happening to your hands to experience hot or cold. Draw a diagram on the top half for what is happening on a particle scale when you touch something hot like a pot from the stove. Share your model with your partner and then revise, if necessary. Then draw a diagram on the bottom half for what is happening on a particle scale when you touch something cold like an ice cube. Share your mode with your partner then revise.

Learning Question

How does energy transfer into a cold drink when it warms up?

Learning Tasks

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Open your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Touching Hot & Cold” p.37 (Right Side). Head p.37 properly with “Touching Hot & Cold-11/29/18.″
  2. Consensus Model– Observe individual student scientists’ models in Google slides. What do you notice that is similar across all models? Is there anything that you think is different about your model? We’re going to take stock of the ideas in everyone’s models to build a class consensus model that everyone agrees upon and that explains what happens to cause a drink to warm up inside a cup. Remind students of class norms for productive scientific discussions and refer to the Communicating in Scientific Ways on ISN p.14. As student scientists offer proposals, create a public representation of the consensus model on chart paper. Agree on how we should represent cold and hot, particle motion, temperature as average kinetic energy, etc.
  3. Scientific Language Key Term– Introduce key term- conduction. Add definition below model on ISN p.34- “Heating that happens when two things of different temperatures touch and the particles with more energy collide with particles with less energy and transfer their movement.” Add the key term conduction to Index.
  4. Brain Break– Optical illusions
  5. Modeling Hot and Cold– What are some examples of conduction from our own experiences? Think about times you’ve touched something and it feels hot or it feels cold. When you touch something and it feels hot or it feels cold, the particles from the object and the particles of your hand are colliding. What can we say about conduction when something feels hot? How is it different when something feels cold? Let’s model these ideas! On ISN p.37, draw two models to help explain what is happening to your hands to experience hot or cold. Draw a diagram on the top half for what is happening on a particle scale when you touch something hot like a pot from the stove. Share your model with your partner and then revise, if necessary. Then draw a diagram on the bottom half for what is happening on a particle scale when you touch something cold like an ice cube. Share your mode with your partner then revise.
