Lesson

In your planner, copy down the list of needs for Science off the whiteboard in the lab-Notebook, 2 rolls Scotch tape, colored pencils, earbuds, Shoe box and round batteries last month of school. Write the procedure for a Fire drill, Tornado Drill while you are in the science room in your planner as well.

 

As you wait for class to begin, locate all student tools (Pencil sharpener etc.) in the science room and be able to tell me what respect looks like in this class and silently read the next two weeks of learning targets and the "Safety Contract".

 

Yesterday I asked you about what you want to do in life as a job, what do you need to get there? How many hours, pay?

 

In your planner, write the procedure for a Fire drill, Tornado Drill in the science room

Review what respect in the job place should look like. Review the locations of student tools in the classroom.

Complete "Remind" handout and the Safety Contract.

As you wait for class to begin, at your lab desk, silently read the next two weeks of learning targets and complete the "Safety Contract" and copy into your planner the material off the whiteboard in the lab to prepare for next week's lab.

 

We will start by the day watching- You can learn anything, then we will wrap up the "Safety Contract" and learn how to use the lab equipment and the use (I hope) of the following:

Dangers of PP

How to use the Fire extinguisher Fire Extinguisher through wall

How to use the Fire Blanket

Safety Shower

How to light a match

How to light a Bunsen burner

**FAVE**

**DashCam**

Then we will light the burners (EVERYONE!)

Log on to your computer, then move to the granite lab desks. We will start the day with lifted then we wrap up of the safety contract (Please finish this at your lab desk, as you wait for class to start.) Then we will talk about rocket supplies and how to launch rockets.

(5th hour will light the burners that they did not do yesterday.) (EVERYONE!)

Lab Safety

Objective today and Tuesday:

Today we will take the NWEA Growth: Science 6-8: for use with NGSS 2013.

When done write all your RIT scores on the sheet from lab desk one.

Use this NWEA shortcut or the desktop shortcut.

The NWEA test will count as a grade. (1/2 as much as the Safety contract)

NWEA Student goal planning Sheet

You need a book to read silently after NWEA testing both today and Tuesday.

You need a spiral bound notebook by tomorrow!

Objective today:

NWEA testing, wrap up

Have paper to write down the session password.

Today we will take the NWEA Growth: Science 6-8: for use with NGSS 2013.

When done write all your RIT scores on the sheet from lab desk one.

Use this NWEA shortcut or the desktop shortcut.

The NWEA test will count as a grade. (1/2 as much as the Safety contract)

You need a book to read silently after NWEA testing.

You need a notebook by tomorrow!

When done read:

 

"Factors in Rocket Design"

 

"How to build a water rocket"

 

"Eggonaught Slides"

 

"Water Rocket Lab"

 

external image Water_rocket.gif

 

Research Water Rockets!

What variables are the MOST important variables to the objective? Draw in your Notebook.

 

What are your key factors?

  1. Use higher pressures. ...(limited to 60psi)

  2. Keep weight to a minimum. ...

  3. Increase rocket volume. ...

  4. Streamline the body of the rocket to reduce drag.

  5. Use a launch tube on the launcher. ...

  6. Use the right amount of water. ... 1 liter

  7. Use an optimum sized nozzle. ...

  8. Use multiple stages.

 

You need your notebook and bottles, log on to your computer, and read each of the following;

 

Then we will take a short break, go glue our notes into our notebook and then return to the reading/building our rockets to end the hour.

 

You have four days to design a rocket that will stay aloft for 5 seconds and return an egg unharmed after a collision with the earth's surface.

12

Lesson

If you are not done with the NWEA Growth: Science 6-8: for use with NGSS 2013.

 

Log on to your computer and we will get you going on NWEA. If you are done with NWEA log on to your computer and finish your research on water rockets. You have 10 minutes.

 

You need a spiral bound notebook today!

Interactive Journal-

Glue all notes into spiral bound notebook/journal on left side. (Right side is used for student response)

Glue in NWEA scores on page one.

13

Lesson

Build water rocket with egg payload that has the greatest possible flight time.

Build like the wind all day! You should have at

least TWO launches by the end

of your science hour! (That should

give you enough data to fix

what is wrong and earn a grade Wednesday.)

Polyethylene terephthalate (aka PET) is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family that is used in soda pop bottles. Serious bodily injury could result from using any other type of bottle.

Water Rockets!

Lesson

Objective- Newton's Laws. Test (launch) Wednesday

 

You need your bottles, tape, and notebook and at your lab desk, write at the top of the next unused page in your notebook- "Rocket Lab" and the following objective under the title:

"Design a rocket that will stay aloft for 10 seconds and return an egg unharmed after a collision with the earth's surface."

 

Then write your step by step procedure below the title and make a cross section drawing of your rocket, your rocket's flight path, and how your design will absorb the force of the impact.

Work in groups of 4.

Two make booster, two make recovery system.

Science test Rocket Launch

Test launch for your final grade at the beginning of the hour today.

You need your notebook to complete your "Rocket Reflection."

In the "Rocket Reflection" draw a picture of each of your rockets.

Label all parts and what purpose each part has.

Tell who brought what and whom made what.

Give the MVP and LVP of your lab group and why.

History of the World in 2 hours.

Today and Friday we will watch and take notes on the History of the World in 2 hours. If you are going to DC watch this movie before Monday) You may use all of the notes on the quiz on Monday. (The movie sums up over 90% of what you will learn this year in less than two hours, so the movie is kind of important :) Whenever you see a blue and white date on the screen, write down the important fact that follows in your notebook. You will use it to answer the quiz Monday. You will also use the movie guide to answer the "small test in the third marking period". (The movie says the universe is 13.7 billion years old, it is not. It is 13.82 billion years old.)

Complete the "History of the world in 2 hours" quiz using your notes, silently at your lab desk. We have made some claims, now we will give evidence of each step.

Welcome to the season of fall,....... but why? Here is Doug and Mystery Science to help you out.

In your notebook, draw the earth's position at the start of each of the four seasons as it orbits around the Sun. (In your notebook, DO NOT DRAW THE SUN TO SCALE!) label the earth's axis and equator at all four seasonal start dates. Find the reason for the seasons by clicking here! Your seasonal drawing is your exit slip today.

Log onto your computer and plug in your earbuds.

 

Open these links- The Moon, Why we have seasons and The seasons Complete a fully labeled drawings of each of the seasons your notebook. (The four dates, orbital locations of each season, each of the 12 months, Earth's axis and equator relative to orbital plane.)

 

Your completed "History of the World in 2 Hours" is your exit slip today, to be handed in on the way out the door.

 

When done, complete "The Scale of the Universe" to wrap up the big picture. We will then begin the year tomorrow, with claims evidence and reasoning and Newton's three laws of motion.
