Wednesday, 11/9/16- B Day- Marching Band Presentation Period 4

Core Ideas:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 28. Look at your model of water at the particle level and read your conclusion from your observations. Which inner circle is smaller?
  2. Investigative PhenomenonWater Balloon Popping in Slow Motion– Using what you learned about water in the water drop observation and the food coloring in water demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening in the slow motion video of a water balloon popping. Why do you think the water keeps its shape the moment the balloon is popped? Imagine a drop of water hanging from your finger. How is this similar to the water staying together after the balloon is popped? (Write-Pair-Share). Trim and tape your model as a flip page to p.28.

Period 2:

  1. Discussion Share observations (full class). When you squeezed the drop of water out of the dropper, did the water break apart or did it hold together? When you tilted the wax paper, did the drop split apart or stay together? When you were pulling the drop around the wax paper, did the water seem to hold together or come apart easily? When you tried to split your drop, did the drop separate easily? What happened when the two small drops touched?
  2. Demonstration Food coloring in water- What do you observe? What does this tell you about the particles that make up water?
  3. Model– On page 28 of your science notebook, draw a model of water on molecular level based on your observations of the investigation and the demonstration. Make a conclusion about whether water holds together well or comes apart easily and why. Observe animation of liquid water molecules and adjust model. Add key word “molecule” to index.
  4. Investigative PhenomenonWater Balloon Popping in Slow Motion– Using what you learned about water in the water drop observation and the food coloring in water demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening in the slow motion video of a water balloon popping. Why do you think the water keeps its shape the moment the balloon is popped? Imagine a drop of water hanging from your finger. How is this similar to the water staying together after the balloon is popped? (Write-Pair-Share). Trim and tape your model as a flip page to p.28.

Friday, 12/18/15- A Day

Learning Objective:

The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter

 

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now
  2. Science FridayBabies on the Brink
  3. Advance OrganizerChemistry of Water- Chemistry Now
  4. Model Building– Water Molecule
  5. Design an experiment– How does the addition of energy affect the rate of evaporation? (Table Group Work Responsibilities)

Friday, 11/20/15- A Day

Learning Objective:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- Air Demonstration-p.39 (Right Side); Open your notebook to page 39 and head it properly with “Air-It’s Really There-Demonstration-11/20/15”; Answer questions 1-16 on the Voice Finder.
  2. Science FridayCider Science
  3. Demonstration– Basketball and Can of Compressed Air
  4. Molecular Model Animation– Particles of a Gas
  5. Period 7- SimulationPhET States of Matter: Basics -Evaluate prediction and review conclusion based on observations from simulation
  6. Organize your notebook! Trim and tape the handouts that we have been doing to pages 34-37.

Tuesday, 11/17/15- B Day

Classes will be in the computer lab in room D8 today!

Learning Objectives:

  • To describe the particulate model of matter for a solid liquid and gas
  • To understand the arrangement, motion, and energy of the particles in each phase

Learning Activities:

  1. Prediction– Predict what the molecules of a solid, liquid, and gas look like. Illustrate your prediction with a drawing. Predict how a change in temperature (heat or cold) will effect each phase change.
  2. SimulationPhET States of Matter: Basics -Model “Neon.” Complete the table by exploring the “Solid, Liquid, Gas” tab in the simulation. Test your predictions and record your observations by recording the temperature and illustrations of each substance in the three states of matter

Friday, 11/13/15- B Day- Last Day of the 1st Marking Period

Learning Objectives:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 32; Get out your homework- For Periods 3 & 6, take out BOTH handouts “Take It Further” and “Explain It With Molecules.” For Periods 2, 4, & 7, the hand out was called “Explain It With Molecules;”Take the 9 Dot Challenge.
  2. Science Friday- The Road Best Traveled: A Tale of Ants, Slime Mold, and the NJ Turnpike
  3. Review HW- Periods 3 & 6- “Explain It With Molecules” (CW) & “Take It Further” (HW)/Periods 2, 4, & 7- “Explain It With Molecules.” Trim and tape handout(s) to page 32.
  4. Advance Organizer- Write-Pair-Share- Science Theater States of Matter video segment
