Monday, 12/11/17- B Day

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the NEW Table of Contents- “Cover Page p.33” (Right Side) and “Anchoring Phenomenon p.35” (Right Side). Head page 33 properly with “Anchoring Phenomenon-12/11/17.” Trim and tape NEW Table of Contents to inside front cover.
  2. Anchoring Phenomenon/See-Think-Wonder– Set up ISN p.35 with the topic “Phenomenon- Substance on a speaker.” Then set up a See-Think-Wonder thinking routine with the following questions: What do you see? What do you think about that? What does it make you wonder? Observe the substance on the speaker. Watch the phenomenon carefully. What did you observe? Answer the questions on page 35. (Write-Pair-Share)
  3. Unit Cover Page– On ISN p.33, create a cover page for the unit on Matter and Its Interactions
    • Write the title very large so that it is easy to read.
    • Draw a minimum of 3 pictures that represents the unit.
    • Color the entire page, corner to corner, using colored pencil or crayons- no white paper showing

Thursday, 5/11/17- A Day- SBAC Schedule (7th Grade Testing)

SBAC Schedule

8:23-9:09 Period 1
9:11-9:58 Period 3
10:01-10:47 Period 2
10:50-11:36 Period 4
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 5
1:04-1:50 Period 6
1:53-2:45 Period 7

Core Ideas:

  • For any pair of interacting objects, the force exerted by the first object on the second object is equal in strength to the force that the second object exerts on the first, but in the opposite direction (Newton’s third law).
  • The motion of an object is determined by the sum of the forces acting on it; if the total force on the object is not zero, its motion will change. The greater the mass of the object, the greater the force needed to achieve the same change in motion. For any given object, a larger force causes a larger change in motion.
  • All positions of objects and the directions of forces and motions must be described in an arbitrarily chosen reference frame and arbitrarily chosen units of size. In order to share information with other people, these choices must also be shared.

Learning Activities:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open it to page 78. On a sticky note, write another question about the truck vs security pillar. The question can be about what the description or the explanation of what you observed.
  2. Initial ideas (model)– Use your Post-it note questions to develop an initial ideas (model) poster with your group. Why was the truck stopped dead? Why was the truck so damaged and the pole was not? What caused this phenomenon? Put all of the individual Post-it note questions from page 78 on the bottom of the group’s poster. Group questions based on similarities.
  3. Gallery walk- What do you notice about the models & post-it questions? What differences & similarities (in questions & models) do you notice?

Homework:

Motion and Forces Unit Cover page 79 due tomorrow, 5/12
