10:50-11:36 Period 4
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5

Core Ideas:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Molecules in Solid- p.32” (Left Side). Open your notebook to page 32 and head it properly with “Molecules in Solid-Model & Conclusion-11/22/16.” Get out your Demonstration handout with questions 3-5. Trim and tape Demonstration questions 3-5 as a flip page to page 33.
  2. Notebook– Review Demonstration Questions 3-5. Set up page 32.
  3. Model & Conclusion- On page 32 of your science notebook, draw a model of the atoms in the metal ball at room temperature and after it has been heated based on your observations of the metal ball and ring. Make a conclusion about whether heating or cooling affects the atoms in a solid and use your observations as support. Observe animation of heating and cooling a solid to adjust your model & conclusions.
  4. Comparison of Particles in Liquids & Solids- Explain It With Atoms & Molecules Questions 1 & 2 handout

Monday, 11/21/16- B Day

Core Ideas:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Molecules in Solid- p.33” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 33 and head it properly with “Molecules in Solid-Demonstration-11/21/16.” Discuss with your group the following questions: What do you know about molecules in a liquid? How does heating or cooling affect the speed of the molecules and the distance between them? Do you think what you learned about molecules in a liquid would be the same as or different than the particles in a solid?
  2. Complete Driving Questions Summary Table (Period 3)– Complete the Summary Table on pages 26-27 for the Molecules in Motion Activity
  3. Notebook- Set up page 33.
  4. Demonstration– How does heating and cooling affect the atoms in a solid? On page 33, determine a problem statement, hypothesis, and experimental variables for the key question. (Write- Pair- Share). Observe the ball and ring demonstration and answer questions 3-5 on the Demonstration handout.

Thursday, 12/3/15- B Day

Learning Objectives:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Get out your notebook and open to pages 28-29; Read the essential questions in your light bulb and the statements on the sticky notes about what you learned; Ask the person who sits next to you one question about the concepts that you are learning that you think will be on the quiz.
  2. Assessment- Matter- Solids, Liquids, & Gas Quiz
  3. Cornell Notes of “Solids, Liquids, and Gases”- Complete group presentations and individual summaries on flip page to 41

Wednesday, 12/2/15- A Day

Learning Objective:

  • Gases and liquids are made of molecules or inert atoms that are moving about relative to each other.
  • In a liquid, the molecules are constantly in contact with others; in a gas, they are widely spaced except when they happen to collide. In a solid, atoms are closely spaced and may vibrate in position but do not change relative locations.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner and copy the definitions for the following scientific terms onto the back of the flash-card template: matter, chemistry, molecules/atoms, solid, liquid, gas
  2. Cornell Notes of “Solids, Liquids, and Gases”- Each group presents Cornell notes on section of reading assignment. Each student should write at least the summary of each presentation as a flip page to p.41

Homework:
