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

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
  2. State of Matter Changes HyperDoc on Google Classroom- pink EXPLAIN section-After using the resources above, 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. 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. Public Representations- Making Your Changes in Thinking Visible- Sticky Note Feedback for Models
  4.  Educational Video- Bill Nye Water Cycle

Home Learning

Final models will be handed in on Friday 2/8.

Wednesday, 2/6/19- A Day- Block Schedule Periods 1, 3, 5, & 7

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
  2. State of Matter Changes HyperDoc on Google Classroom- pink EXPLAIN section-After using the resources above, 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: 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.

Wednesday, 2/28/17- B Day

Question:

How does heat energy from the sun drive the cycling of water through Earth’s systems? How does water change its state as it moves through the multiple pathways of the water cycle?

Learning Tasks:

  1. Do Now
  2. Educational VideoThe Water Cycle
  3. Student ReadingThe Hydrologic Cycle ReadWorks article and question set
  4. Complete the model for the Changes in State HyperDoc– Your model 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:

  • 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.

STUDY- States of Matter/Changes of State Quiz on Friday 3/2

**Bring your science notebook to class tomorrow!

Tuesday, 1/10/16- B Day WINN/Advisory Schedule- No Periods 4 & 5

8:23-9:09 Advisory
9:12-9:58 WINN
10:01-10:47 Period 7
10:50-11:36 Period 6
11:41-1:01 (includes lunch as usual with usual times) Period 2
1:04-1:50 Period 3
1:53-2:45 Period 1

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:

  1. Do Now- Copy down today’s homework assignment in your planner
  2. Advance Organizer– The Water Cycle NSF and Bill Nye The Science Guy Water Cycle video segments
  3. Reading for Information-“What Is the Water Cycle?” USGS Water Science School article
  4. Practice- Answer questions with explanations and models on fogging up a cold window, warm breath in cold air, and evaporation & condensation in the water cycle

Homework:

  • Complete questions 8, 9, 10
  • STUDY pages 38-49- Changes of State Quiz on Friday 1/13
