Monday, 2/11/19- B Day

Learning Goal:

Students will be able to create a model that explains what happens to particle motion, temperature, and states of matter when heat energy is added or removed.

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Put your name on your paper and answer the following question:Describe what happens to matter when it changes state. Give an example.
  2. State of Matter Changes HyperDocComplete the model that describes/explains the particular change of state phenomenon that you and your partner chose. Don’t forget that your model should feature the following changes: Particle motion, temperature, change of state of matter. Your model should include the following: Observable and unobservable features; The passing of time (ex. before-during-after); A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?); Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.
  3. Scientists’ Circle– Each student/pair will present one of their models to the rest of the student scientists. We will come to a consensus about what happens to matter when it changes state.

Friday, 12/23/16- B Day- Early Dismissal

To all my students:

Enjoy your time with your families and friends! I look forward to seeing you when we return- all well-rested and ready to learn!

Kindly,

Mrs. Vigliotti

  2. SimulationStates of Matter Basics PhET simulation- Explore the simulation. Observe the movement of water molecules in each state and record your observations. Observe the movement of neon atoms in each state and record your observations. Compare/contrast the particles in water to neon in each state. What happens when temperature or pressure changes?

Wednesday, 12/21/16- B Day

All classes should report to the library today to gather information about Changes of State from the simulation States of Matter Basics. The assignment is on Google Classroom.

Core Ideas:

  • The changes of state that occur with variations in temperature or pressure can be described and predicted using models of matter
  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  • Heat refers to energy transferred due to temperature differences between two objects

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now– Develop a model & description of the following states of matter: solids, liquids, gases. Predict the effect of temperature on the particle movement of each. (Developing States of Matter Models handout)
