Focus Question:

How does the cup surface affect how light warms up liquids?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your ISN and open it to page 43. Get out “Investigating Light’s Effect on Warming Up Water” handout.
  2. Investigation– Light and Temperature- Assign 2 groups each to Group A (clear & foil-wrapped cups), Group B (white- and black-painted cups), and Dark (all cups without light). Review setup, procedures, & data tables. After your group takes the temperature, return to your seats. As a full class, collect Light Measurements data (incoming, transmitted, & reflected light). Calculate percentages of light measurements. Then record the “What We Have Figured Out” notes on ISN p.43.

Focus Question:

If matter cannot enter or leave a closed system, how does the temperature of a liquid in a closed system change?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Please get out your ISN. Add to the Table of Contents- “Effect of Energy p. 40” (Left Side) and “Effect of Energy p.41 (Right Side). Head pages 40-41 properly with “Effect of Energy- 11/20/19.”
  2. Independent Summative Assessment– Individual & independent explanation- Different Lid Designs- You will demonstrate what you have figured out by explaining how to test the performance of two different cup lid designs and predicting the results of those investigations.
  3. Turn and Talk– Check out results from an airtight system. Study the data from the data table. How can the liquid inside the container change temperature even when no matter is leaving or entering? What are the different ways this might happen?
  4. Brainstorm Possible Causes of Temperature Change– What else could be causing the temperature of the liquid inside the closed cup system to change? Can anything else go into, out of, or through the cup walls and/or lid? Brainstorm with your partner and share with the class.
  5. Using Models to Represent Our Thinking– Set up ISN pages 40-41. With your partner, answer the following questions on ISN p.40: How does light interact with different materials, such as clear plastic and metal? How might light shining on the closed cup system cause the liquid inside to change in temperature? How might you represent your thinking using a model? Share your thinking about light and temperature change. Then with your partner, answer the following questions on ISN p.41: How does heat move? Does cold move too? How might heat (or cold) cause the liquid inside the closed cup system to change in temperature? How might you represent your thinking using a model? Share your thinking about heat or cold and temperature change. Construct models of light and heat or cold interactions with the closed cup system on ISN pages 40-41. Your models should show how you think each of these interacts with the closed cup system and how those interactions could cause the temperature of the liquid inside the closed cup system to change.

Question:

What causes heat energy to be transferred? How do changes in heat energy affect particle motion, temperature, & states of matter?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now- You wake up and you notice that the grass is all wet, but it didn’t rain the night before. What happened?
    • What is this change of state called? What is the beginning state of matter and what is the ending state? (1 point)
    • How is this affecting the motion of the water particles? (1 point)
    • Is heat energy added or removed? How is the temperature changing? (1 point)
  2. Educational Video– Evaporation and Condensation Eureka!
  3. Changes in State HyperDoc– You should be completing the pink Explain Section. Now that you have studied, watched, and read the resources, collaborate with no more than two other students to develop a model on the paper given that describes/explains: the liquifying of candle wax OR a puddle drying up in the sun AND the hardening of molten metal OR the “smoke” you see when you breathe in cold air. Your model should feature the following changes:
    • Particle motion
    • Temperature
    • Change of state of matter

Your model should include the following:

  1. Observable and unobservable features
  2. The passing of time (ex. before-during-after)
  3. A key to show how you are representing different things (ex. How are you representing particles? What is showing temperature?)
  4. Writing- Explain how the evidence from your explorations supports your model.
