Gaede's Classwork and Homework
Science Week 1
August 21, 2017.
Opener: Brief Welcoming, Mentioning of what school supplies to get and Direction quiz on lined paper.
CW: Students will read the essay "Attitude is Everything" aloud in class. After reading aloud during class, students will have time to write 3-5 sentences about what they think that this essay is teaching them and what is important. We will have a discussion if time allows. For the first week, I let students sit where they think that they can learn the best but room 132 is a large room so students with poorer eyesight should not sit in back. School supplies are lined paper, pencils, correcting pen, spiral notebook, and a trapper folder--- only for Science. Optional: glue sticks, scissors, colored pencils/markers, and rulers. Hopefully, students used my rubric on the board to help them write a good essay to receive all 10 points. They may take pictures on their phones or write the rubric down if they do not finish in class.
HW: If a student did not complete this assignment then it becomes homework to finish at home. This assignment will be graded and it needs to be brought back to class on Tuesday.
August 22, 2017.
Opener: Students will exchange papers with elbow partners and read each other paragraphs about Attitude is Everything. The same rubric will be used in order to score. Students will then give Ms. Gaede their scores for their first graded paper:)

Questions: to be answered on the worksheet to be put in their Interactive Journal:
1. Describe what the colors looked like and how they moved and mixed in the cold water?
2. Describe what the colors looked like and how they moved and mixed in the hot water?
3. What does the speed of the mixing colors tell you about the speed of the molecules in hot and cold water?
CW: Students will then watch a few simulations presented and projected by the doc cam and internet to enhance their understanding. Students will answer 3 more questions.
1. Are the molecules moving faster in cold water or hot water?
2. How does this match with your observations with the food coloring?
3. Look closely at the space between the molecules in cold and hot water. Is there more space in between the molecules in hot water or in cold water. Is it a lot of space?
Now in your Notebooks, draw and label models of water molecules illustrating each of the following statements:
1. Heating a substance increases kinetic energy.
2. Cooling a substance decreases kinetic energy.
3. As kinetic energy increases, the space between molecules increases.
4. As kinetic energy decreases, the space between molecules decreases.
