Thursday, 5/10/18- A Day- SBAC (7th grade) Schedule- 1, 3, 2, 4, 5, 6, & 7

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Expedition Introduction

Learning Objective:

Students will understand that motion is relative to a reference point and the difference between distance and displacement.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Cover Page p.67” (Right Side) and “Expedition Briefing p.69” (Right Side). Head page 69 properly with “Expedition Briefing-5/10/18.” Trim and tape NEW Table of Contents to inside front cover.
  2. Educational videos– Watch “Meet the Researcher” video. On ISN p.69, summarize what you learned about Matt Brumbelow. Watch”Expedition Briefing” video. On ISN p.69, jot down thoughts and questions.
  3. Unit Cover Page– On ISN p.67, create a cover page for the unit on A Universe of Motion.
    • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
    • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
    • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing.

Wednesday, 5/9/18- B Day- SBAC (7th Grade) Schedule- 6, 1, 7, 4, 2, 3, & 5

JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- Expedition Introduction

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- We are starting an expedition on motion with a scientist from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. With your partner, discuss the following questions: What is motion? Why is it important to know the science of motion? In what types of careers might knowledge about motion be important?
  2. Educational VideoUnderstanding Car Crashes: It’s Basic Physics! While watching the video, complete the Video Concept Organizer. Then, answer the Video Discussion Questions.

Thursday,5/26/16- A Day

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.

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner; Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Newton’s Laws 1 & 2 Conclusion p.104” (Left Side); Head page 104 properly with “Newton’s 1st & 2nd Laws-Conclusion-5/26/16.”
  2. Investigation Experiment– How does the sum of forces on an object or the mass of an object affect the object’s motion? Model procedure & data table. Review science safety expectations and cooperative group member responsibilities. Conduct investigation and record data in data table.

Homework:

Complete Forces and Motion Basics PhET simulation- due tomorrow 5/27

Tuesday, 5/24/16- A Day

All classes will meet in the computer lab A3/A5

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Counseling Lesson- Mrs. Verrastro will lead a counseling lesson.
  2. Investigation Simulation (continued)Forces and Motion: Basics PhETsimulation- See post in Google Classroom. Investigate balanced and unbalanced forces in a game of tug-of-war. Explore the forces at work when pushing against objects of different masses: a refrigerator, crate, or person. Create an applied force and see how it makes objects move. Change friction and see how it affects the motion of objects. How does the sum of the forces on an object and the mass of an object affect the object’s movement?

Monday, 5/23/16- B Day

All classes will meet in the computer lab A3/A5

Learning Objectives:

  • To determine the motion of an object by the sum of the forces acting on it
  • To relate mass and force to a change in motion

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Head the “Forces and Motion” simulation handout with your name, date, and period; Read the scenario at the top of the page about friends playing tug-of-war and write your opinion about a fair way to split up the teams.
