Focus Question:

How does the motion of particles compare in a sample of matter at any given temperature?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowPlease get out your ISN and copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Gas Particles Simulation p.50″ (Left Side). Head p.50 with “Gas Particles Simulation-1/10/2020.”
  2. Science FridayPlunge into the Science of BASE Jumping
  3. Online Interactive Model– Continue to explore the online interactive model. Review what we figured out as you made changes to the simulation using the control pad in Part A of “Particle Interactions in Gases” handout. Record what we figured out on ISN p.50. Collect more data using the interactive model and record your findings in Part B of the handout. As a full class, make sense of your small group data to build understanding and document what you figured out on ISNp.50.

Focus Question:

Why do particles move more in hot substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning in your planner. Please get out your ISN & open it to page 48. Also, get out your model handout from yesterday
  2. Science FridayThis is Your Brain On Pokemon
  3. Explanation– Construct an explanation below the model using the given sentence frames. Tape the model & explanation as a flip page to ISN p.48.
  4. Self Reflection for ISN on Marking Period 2 (ISN pages 32-49)- See Assignment #008 under Today topic in Classwork tab in Google Classroom.

Friday, 12/13/19- B Day

Focus Question:

What is the difference between warmer and colder substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Food Coloring Lab p.47″ (Right Side). Head p.47 properly with “Food Coloring Lab–12/13/19.”
  2. Science Friday– Where’s the Octopus?
  3. Investigation– Food Coloring Lab- Turn and Talk- What if we only had a cup of plain hot or cold water–do you think there are particles moving around that we cannot see? What could we do to see them? Set up ISN p.47. Review materials, procedures, & science safety. Remind students to make their observations as soon as possible after adding food coloring! Conduct lab and draw what you observe on ISN p.47. Then respond to the writing prompt. Predict what a cup of room temperature water will look like with food coloring. Draw your prediction on ISN p.48. Test & record observations on ISN p.48 for a cup of room temperature water. Tape “Hot vs Cold” handout as a flip page to ISN p.47.

Focus Question:

How does the cup surface affect how light warms up liquids?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowAsk the person who sits next to you the following question: Why does adding a lid to a cup decrease the amount of water that leaves the cup?
  2. Science Friday– Wild California Condors Made Here
