Wednesday, 3/20/19- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 1, 3, 5, & 7- Happy Spring Equinox & Full Moon!

Lesson Question:

If speed has an effect on the impact of collisions, what happens if an object changes speed? What does this look like on a graph?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Copy down today’s Home Learning Tasks in your planner. Get out your science notebook and open to page 56. Write your answers to the questions at the bottom of page 56.
  2. Simulation Laboratory InvestigationThe Moving Man: Position, Velocity, Acceleration PhET– Complete the Moving Man PhET simulation laboratory by using the link to get to the simulation, following the directions and completing the tasks on the view-only handout in the Google Classroom post.

Lesson Question:

How do different factors affect an object’s speed? How does an object’s speed affect its impact?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your “The Fast and the Curious” digital lab worksheet. Write your name on your paper and answer the question: How do different factors affect an object’s speed? How does an object’s speed affect its impact?
  2. Science FridayBabies on the Brink

Thursday, 3/7/19- B Day- Block Schedule Periods 2, 4, 6, & 8

Lesson Question:

How do different factors affect an object’s speed? How does an object’s speed affect its impact?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now– Get out your “Calculating Speed lab worksheet. Write your name on your paper and answer the question: “What did we just do? What did we figure out last time?”
  2. Investigation– Review lab questions from Home Learning
  3. Navigation Routine– Looking back- What did we just do? What did we figure out last time? Looking forward- What are our next steps? What is a question we need to address? What direction do we need to pursue?
  4. Digital Lab– The Fast and The Curious- Use the link posted in Google Classroom to play The Fast and The Curious game. To move the car forward and side-to-side in the game, click and drag the car. Observe what the speed and velocity graphs look like. Click on a point in the speed graph to see the instantaneous speed. After you have finished, DO NOT CLOSE YOUR GAME. Use the speed and velocity graphs and your results to answer the questions on the worksheet.

Monday, 2/25/19- B Day

Lesson Question:

How do different factors affect an object’s speed? How does an object’s speed affect its impact?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do NowCopy down your Home Learning assignment in your planner. Get out your science notebook and add to the Table of Contents- “Calculating Speed p.55 (Right Side). Head page 55 properly with “Calculating Speed-Investigation-2/25/19.”
  2. Scientists’ Circle– Looking back- What did we just do? Looking forward- What are our next steps?
  3. Video/Scientific Language Key WordCheck for Understanding-Watch “Expedition 2: A Universe of Motion” to meet Matt Brumbelow, a research engineer. Record the lesson question on ISNp.55. Set up ISN p.55 to record the definitions of the following scientific language keywords: reference point, displacement, distance, speed, velocity. Record the same terms and page numbers in the Index in the back of your ISN. Also, set up ISN p.55 to answer the “Check for Understanding” questions on the reading assignments.
  4. Crash Protection Device Design Challenge– Your goal is to design a crash protection device that will absorb enough energy during a car crash to save lives. What materials do you want to use? Why will those work? Are there design features you want to include? Use ISN p.54 to draw an initial design model and ask questions you could investigate to find answers that will help your design. You do not need to agree on a design right now.

Home Learning:

Read the “Calculating Speed and Determining Velocity Lab” posted in Google Classroom (in Classwork Tab under Today).
