- Testing Periods: HR, 3, & 4
- Class Rotation: 1, 2, 5, 6, & 7
*Period 2- Collect ISN’s
- Do Now– List 3 strategies from the video on Cornell notes
- Cornell note-taking strategy– Use the Cornell note-taking sheet & apply strategy while reading Chapter 3 Student Reading on Density. Model how to fill in first main idea & supporting details. Remember, you can use sketches in Cornell notes too!
Density Assessment on Tue. 5/8
Science Notebooks (ISN’s) due as follows:
- Tomorrow 5/3- Period 3
- Friday 5/4- Period 7
How do changes in density cause patterns of ocean currents?
- Class Announcement– Let me have your attention, please. I have meetings during most of the day today. Please remember to treat the substitute kindly by being respectful and cooperative and using self-control. Your task is described below. I look forward to hearing from the substitute about your good behavior and attention to your learning task!
- Student Reading– Ocean Circulations ReadWorks article and Connection Web graphic organizer- Read the article on Ocean Circulations. In the graphic organizer, write the following Connection in the oval in the center: Unequal heating of the Earth and changes in water density cause patterns of ocean currents. While you read the article, record Supporting Details in the rectangles that help illustrate the connection between heating or density to ocean currents. When you are done reading and recording supporting details, write a paragraph on the back of the graphic organizer.
- Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Brainteaser Quiz: One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. How could this be?
- Reading Comprehension– Snowflakes Newsela article
- Active viewing– Snowflake Safari and Growing Snowflakes in a Bottle
ISN’s are due this week! 🙂 Per.7- tomorrow, Per 6- Fri.
Do all objects vibrate when they are making sounds?
- New Seats!
- Video Segment– MythBusters: Moon Hoax Retroreflectors
- Article– Read “The Vibrating Moon”
- Questions– Answer Q2 and Q3 on “Where Else Are Lasers Used To Detect Vibrations?” handout
|11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times)
- For any pair of interacting objects, the force exerted by the first object on the second object is equal in strength to the force that the second object exerts on the first, but in the opposite direction (Newton’s third law).
- The motion of an object is determined by the sum of the forces acting on it; if the total force on the object is not zero, its motion will change. The greater the mass of the object, the greater the force needed to achieve the same change in motion. For any given object, a larger force causes a larger change in motion.
- All positions of objects and the directions of forces and motions must be described in an arbitrarily chosen reference frame and arbitrarily chosen units of size. In order to share information with other people, these choices must also be shared.
- Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open it to page 78. On a sticky note, write another question about the truck vs security pillar. The question can be about what the description or the explanation of what you observed.
- Initial ideas (model)– Use your Post-it note questions to develop an initial ideas (model) poster with your group. Why was the truck stopped dead? Why was the truck so damaged and the pole was not? What caused this phenomenon? Put all of the individual Post-it note questions from page 78 on the bottom of the group’s poster. Group questions based on similarities.
- Gallery walk- What do you notice about the models & post-it questions? What differences & similarities (in questions & models) do you notice?
Motion and Forces Unit Cover page 79 due tomorrow, 5/12
