Why does the temperature of the liquid in some cup systems change more than in others?
- Do Now– Copy down today’s home learning task in your planner. Get out your ISN and add to the Table of Contents- “Related Phenomena” p.21 (Right Side). Head p.21 properly with “Related Phenomena-10/8/19.″
- Identify Related Phenomena– Review the other systems that keep something inside them the same temperature (HW Questions from Google Classroom Question #003.) What kinds of systems or objects can maintain the temperature of the stuff inside them without using electricity? How do these things work? Develop a Related Phenomena chart and record this chart on ISN p.21.
- Related Systems Model– Pick 1 item from the Related Phenomena poster. On ISN p.20, draw a model to explain how you think the item works to keep something inside it cold or warm. A few student scientists will share their models with the projector. How do the cups and these related systems work to keep things cold or hot? What different mechanisms cause the thing inside to warm up or cool down? What patterns are there in structural features that seem to be important for slowing or stopping temperature change?
- Driving Question Board (DQB)– Ask “How” and “Why” questions to figure out how & why the fancy cup and related systems work to maintain the temperature of the stuff inside them. Turn and talk to brainstorm a couple of how and why questions about the cup systems or about a pattern you observed when looking at the related phenomena. Write one question on a notecard in marker, big & bold. Put your initials on back in pencil. The questions should be ones that can be answered through investigation and will help explain how things work the way they do.
