Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 42-43.
  2. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Particles in Solid on ISN pages 42-43.
  3. Anchoring Model/Explanation– How can the oobleck be both a liquid and a solid? What did we figure out about the effect of temperature on the movement of particles in a solid with our investigation of the solid metal ball and ring ? How do you think this relates to how oobleck works? Add what we figured out about liquid and solid matter to our model of oobleck.
  4. Period 3- Gallery Walk- You will have 3 minutes to observe each model. As a group, write feedback on 3 sticky notes, one for each prompt:
    3 prompts:
    This model is effective because…(positive feedback)
    Did you consider…(constructive feedback)
    Something I’ve seen in other models is…/Something unique to your model is…
    This is an active investigation, but remember to use inside voices. Once 3 minutes is up and the timer rings, your group will rotate, clockwise, to the next station. This procedure continues until groups have visited all stations and return to the station at which they started.

Tuesday, 1/30/18- A Day- Delayed Opening

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- Get out your science notebook and open to page 42. On the slip of paper, draw a model of the atoms in a solid after it has been heated.
  2. Complete Scientific Language Notecard– Make a Scientific Language Notecard for the key word atom. Tape Scientific Language Notecard as a flip to ISN p.43. Enter the key word atom in the Index.
  3. Investigative Phenomenon– Why do bridges have flexible connections?– Using what you learned about the effect of temperature on the motion of atoms in a solid in the metal ball and ring demonstration, create a model to explain what is happening to the road on the bridge. Knowing what you do about how solids act when they are heated and cooled, why do you think they put flexible connections in the road on a bridge? Tape your model as a flip page to p.42.
  4. Driving Questions Summary Table– Complete the DQST on ISN pages 36-37 for the Particles in Solid on ISN pages 42-43.

Thursday, 1/25/18- B Day

Question:

Does temperature affect the speed of particles in a solid?

  1. Do Now– Get out your science notebook and add to your Table of Contents- “Particles in Solid- p.43” (Right Side). Open your notebook to page 43 and head it properly with “Particles in Solid-1/25/18.”
  2. Scientists Circle– 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?
  3. Demonstration Investigation– How does temperature affect the particles in a solid? Set up page 43. Determine experimental variables and a hypothesis, and for the key question. Observe the ball and ring demonstration and record your observations on ISN p.43. Then, answer questions 3-5 on the Demonstration handout. Trim and tape the demonstration handout as a flip page to ISN p.43.

Tuesday, 11/22/16- WINN/Advisory Day- No periods 2 & 6

8:23-9:09 Advisory
9:12-9:58 WINN
10:01-10:47 Period 3
10:50-11:36 Period 4
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5
1:04-1:50 Period 1
1:53-2:45 Period 7

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.
