WEEK 7 - IN LAB
Project Wet - H2O Olympics Page 13
I can demonstrate the adhesive and cohesive properties of water by conducting an experiment in the STEM Lab today.
Follow the steps:
A) How many drops of water will the penny be able to hold?
A) Pipette (eye dropper) and the Penny
Paired students: Student 1 will use the pipette first to put drops of water on the penny, students 2 will count and record answer.
How many pennies will a cup of water full of water be able to hold?
1. Fill up cups to the top with water.
2. Have students predict how many pennies can be put into the cup before water spill out.
3. Record results.
4. One person will put the pennies in, while the table counts.
5. You can have a student taking pictures or video with an ipad.
6. record results.
B) Cup of water and the pennies:
This time, the whole table will work together to
3. Record Results
Week 6- in lab liquids and their properties
1. Introduce each liquid, and the vocabulary:
Transparent: able to be seen through
translucent: not completely clear or transparent but clear enough to
allow light to pass through
-Frosted glass is translucent.
viscous: thick or sticky:not flowing easily
2. Students will examine the materials and write down their observations of each liquid.
3. Students will match the liquid with the vocabulary words above.
4. Students will draw the liquids in their journals showing each property.
We did not use the Foss, "Solids in Containers" unit this quarter. We moved to liquids.
Week 5 STEM Lab -
Question: What are the properties of different solids?
1. Your task for today: Students will find out as much as you can about each of the five materials by transferring them from one container to another.
Students will spend 5 minutes at each station.
A. Put one level scoop of material in each container.
B. Can you get the material to pile up?
C. Describe how small solid materials pour.
D. Can you put the material in a pile, a line, a square?
E. What happens when you put the wood cylinder and the screw in a cup of solid material?
Write your notes on the sheet provided and answer all of these questions, for each item!
How small is it?
The material poured
Put the material in a line.
Put the material in a square.
With nail and screw
Once the students are done, they will write description of the materials at each station.
The ___________ was ______________ all over. (Example) The bean was shiny and white all over.
IN LAB LESSON - WEEK 5 (9/9, 9/11)
Foss (Solids and liquids Module: (Bits and Piec
Solids in Containers
IN LAB LESSON - WEEK 4 (9/2, 9/4)
Question: Can I build a tower out of solid materials that will stand up by itself?
1. Talk to your group about the answer to the question, then answer the question in you journal.
2. Make your prediction on the
3. Work with 2-3 people at your table and draw your plan for a tower using the materials (cup, rubber band, craft stick, cardboard, and tinfoil).
4. Build a tower, rebuild if it falls down.
5. Write down which plan worked, and which plan does not work.
6. Clean up and stack journals during the last 7 minutes of class.
WEEK 8 IN CLASS
Properties of Gas
I can describe the steps in the experiment that I did last week in the STEM lab.
What happened in the experiment?
Make a drawing of the experiment.
WEEK 7 - IN CLASS
Good morning students! Today we are going to review the experiment you did in the lab on Friday, with Ms. Comfort. If you were not here on Friday, then please listen to your neighbor tell you about it!
Ms. Sanders will help you. You put drops of water on a penny, and today you are going to learn more about that.
Students write on the top of their journals:
Week 7 - In Class
1. Students will describe the penny experiment to each other 1-2 minutes.
2. Students will draw a picture of the experiement for the first 5 minutes.
STUDENTS WILL WRITE THE SENTENCE STEMS BELOW AND FILL IN THE BLANKS:
A. I predicted that the penny would hold _____ drops of water.
B. The penny actually held ______ drops of water.
C. Draw the surface tension molecules in your journals.
Surface Tension: the force that causes the molecules on the surface of a liquid to be pushed together and form a layer
Cohesion: the act or state of sticking together tightly
Extensions: If time allows
Can animals walk on water?
Predict, then examine the bug photo below.
WEEK 6 - STEM LAB
WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF A LIQUID?
1. List 1 property of 1 liquid you worked with in the STEM Lab on a sticky note.
2. Next, students will bring the sticky notes up and place them on the the "Properties of Liquids" chart.
3. Compare and contrast the properties of 2 liquids at a time on a Venn Diagram.
1. Venn Diagram Poster
2. Properties of liquids Poster
CLASS LESSON - WEEK 5
(9/8, 910/, 9/11)Recording my Experiment
I can describe my experiment in words and in pictures. I can write about sorting small and very small solids.
1. Make a Venn diagram to compare properties of the solids.
2. Write a compare and contrast.
3. If time: Properties of Matter foldable.
The property of the ___ was _________,
but the property of the was __________.
The _____ and _______ are similar
but the _____ is different than the _____.
IN CLASS LESSON - WEEK 4 (9/3, 9/5)
INTRODUCTION TO INFORMATIONAL WRITING
I can write to inform others about my engineering project.
1. Students will discuss the results of the tower building.
2. Students will then divide their page into 3 segments with lines down the middle and write, Plans, What worked? What did not work? and fill in the graphic organizer. (A link to this document is at the end of the lesson.)
