October 29 – November 2, 2018

Objectives

  • I am applying what I have learned about physical/chemical properties and changes.
  • I am learning about the changes that occur in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.
  • I am learning how mass/matter is conserved when it changes state.

Monday, October 29, 2018

  • Success Starter: Bellringer – Physical and Chemical Changes questions
  • Opening: Gummy Bear Experiment video – s/watch video and determine if a chemical or physical change is taking place. S/will give evidence to support their claim.

 

  • Class Activity: Gallery Walk-
    • Students will view 20 pictures, determine if they show physical or chemical change. They will also give evidence to support their claim.
    • S/create a foldable for Physical and Chemical Properties/Changes

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

  • Success Starter: Think-Pair-Share: One student will read the objective and the other student will respond with their understanding of the objective.
  • Opening: Phenomena: Can Crusher
    • Students will watch a video of cans being crushed and then discussed the phenomena.
    • Why were the cans crushed after being heated and then put into ice water?
  • Class Activity:

Thursday, November 1, 2018

  • Success Starter: Bellringer questions
  • Opening: Demo of how air expands and contracts using hot water, ice water, empty soda bottle, and a balloon. S/will perform demonstration.
  • Class Activity:
    • Discuss the demonstration:
      1. What happens to the balloon when you place it in cold water?
      2. What would happen to the balloon when you place the bottle into the hot water?
      3. What happens to the air (gas) in the bottle when you place the bottle into cold ice water/hot water?
      4. What causes this change in the gas in the bottle/balloon?

      5. What would happen to the water in the bottle if more heat was removed?

October 22-26, 2018

Objective: I am learning about the changes (physical/chemical) which take place in matter.

Monday, October 22, 2018

  • Success Starter
    • Think-Pair-Share Activity –  With an elbow partner, one student read the learning question and the other student respond with their understanding of the learning question.
  • Opening
    • Demonstration of Physical Changes– T/have a student to come to the front of the classroom and tear a piece of paper into pieces. T/have another student try put the paper back together on the table. What did the demonstration represent?
  • Class Activity
