Friday, 1/10/2020- B Day

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:

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

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please 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.51″ (Right Side). Head p.51 with “Gas Particles Suimulation-1/6/2020.
  2. Write-Pair-Share– On ISN p.51- What have we figured out about the particles that make up warmer and cooler matter? Use evidence to support your thinking.
  3. Online Interactive Model– Explore the online interactive model. Write the question “How does the motion of the particles compare in a sample of matter at any given temperature?” below your Write-Pair-Share on ISN p.51. Review the Control Panel (blue buttons, green sliders, visual particle speed drop-down menu, yellow monitors). Complete Part A of Particle Interactions in Gases handout. Make a Notice/Wonder T-chart below your question on ISN p.51. Record what you noticed and wondered as you made changes to the simulation using the control pad.

Home Learning:

ISN’s due this week: Period 7 due today, Period 6 due tomorrow, Period 3 due Wednesday, 1/8, Period 4 due Thursday 1/9, and Period 1 due Friday, 1/10.

Thursday, 12/19/19- B Day- Block Schedule- Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Focus Question:

What is the difference between warmer and colder substances? Why do particles move more in hot substances?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents: “Simulation p.49”
    (Right Side). Head p.49 properly with “Hot & Cold Simulation-12/19/19.”
  2. Model– What is the difference between a cold and a hot liquid? Use the information from the dissolving candy video, the Food Coloring Lab, and the reading. Then, on a flip page, draw what you think the particles are doing in cold water and as the water warms up to room temperature water. Compare models with a classmate. Generate ideas about the class representation of particle movement. Tape your flip page and the reading on James Joule’s experiment to ISN p.46.
  3. Simulation– Use this simulation to see what is happening at the particle level. Make a Notice-Wonder T-chart on ISN p.49. Make observations of the simulation and record your observations & questions in your Notice-Wonder T-chart. Share as a full class. Drawing on evidence from the Food Coloring Lab, the peppermint candy video, the reading about Joule, and this simulation, what can we summarize about the differences between particles in cold, warm, and hot liquids? Record the scientific language key term on ISN p.49: kinetic energy = how fast or slow particles move; the energy of motion. Answer the following questions on ISN p.49: In the simulation, which particles had the most kinetic energy? Which particles had the least kinetic energy?
