JASON Project Operation Terminal Velocity- Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion- What is Motion?
Students will understand that motion is relative to a reference point and the difference between distance and displacement.
- Science Friday– Hurricane in a Box
- Educational Game– The Fast and the Curious- Use the link below to get to the game The Fast and the Curious in the JASON Project website. Take a few laps around the racetrack behind the wheel of the Argorado, JASON’s fastest race car. Then, see what the speed and velocity graphs look like for your race! After you have finished, DO NOT CLOSE YOUR GAME. Answer the questions about your results in the worksheet below. Use the Speed and Velocity graphs to answer the questions.
- Science Friday– Superbloom: How Death Valley Springs to Life and Physics Girl– How to Make a Cloud in Your Mouth
- Self Reflection for the Unit on Density– Refer to page 8 in your ISN for directions on how to write a Self-Reflection. Use the Google Doc in Google Classroom to type your responses in the light grey boxes for each of the steps.
- NGSS Assessment Sample Items– Remember the science assessment sample items that we reviewed to illustrate the rigor and complexity of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) assessment. The sample items allow students to become familiar with the item interactions and navigational tools that are used in NGSS assessments.
Science Notebooks (ISN’s) due as follows:
- Monday 4/30- Period 6
- Tuesday 5/1- Period 4
- Wednesday 5/2- Period 2
- Thursday 5/3- Period 3
- Friday 5/4- Period 7
- Science Friday– Bats Take Flight

To my students: I hope that you have a safe, restful, enjoyable vacation and come back ready to learn! 🙂
What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass?
- Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Effect of Volume- p.58” (Left Side). Head page 58 properly with “Effect of Volume-3/29/18.” Open your science notebook to page 59. Get out your lab activity handout.
- Science Friday– Forecasting Avalanches
- Investigation– What is the relationship between volume and density for objects of equal mass? Complete calculating the densities and identifying the samples using the densities. Answer question 5. Tape the Activity handout as flip page to ISN p.59. Review data as a class. On ISN p.58, model relative size & arrangement of atoms/molecules in plastic & metal cylinders and write a Claim-Evidence-Reasoning (CER) regarding how the volume of cylinders of the same mass affects density.
