    Student will know how compare/contrast the forms of energy. They will know energy is transformed from one form to another. Know how to describe the relationship between potential and kinetic energy.

    Student will do a Laws of motion Test. Students will do a “Forms of Energy” foldable, do a Rainbow read about “Energy from Panda Poop”, and do a lab about potential and kinetic energy.

    Homework Lesson outline 4.1 4.1 Outline

    Standards

    SC.6.P.11.1 – Explore the Law of Conservation of Energy by differentiating between potential and kinetic energy. Identify situations where kinetic energy is transformed into potential energy and vice versa. SC.7.P.11.3 – Cite evidence to explain that energy cannot be created or destroyed, only changed from one form to another.

    Honors

    SC.912.P.10.11 – Explain and compare nuclear reactions (radioactive decay, fission and fusion), the energy changes associated with them and their associated safety issues.) SC.912.P.10.12 – Differentiate between chemical and nuclear reactions. SC.912.P.10.5 – Relate temperature to the average molecular kinetic energy. SC.9.12P.10.6-Create and interpret potential energy diagrams, for example: chemical reactions, orbits around a central body, motion of a pendulum (also covered in Changes of Matter and in Energy). SC.912.P.10.1 – Differentiate among the various forms of energy and recognize that they can be transformed from one form to others.

    Students will know the difference between balanced and unbalanced. They will know how to represent force with directional arrows and calculated net force. The student will do a series of activities leading to a writing assignment where they will use the evidence from each activities to write a scientific explanation that describes how balanced and unbalanced forces affect an objects motion.

    SC.6.P.13.3 – Investigate and describe that an unbalanced force acting on an object changes its speed, or direction of motion, or both.

     (Monday 15, 2018 MLK Day_ No school)

    Students will finish up the labs and foldable from last week. The student will also take a quiz on speed and velocity.

    SC.8.P.8.2 – Differentiate between weight and mass recognizing that weight is the amount of gravitational pull on an object and is distinct from, though proportional to, mass.SC.6.P.12.1 – Measure and graph distance versus time for an object moving at a constant speed. Interpret this relationship. SC.6.P.13.1 – Investigate and describe types of forces including contact forces and forces acting at a distance such as electrical, magnetic, and gravitational. SC.6.P.13.2 – Explore the Law of Gravity by recognizing that every object exerts gravitational force on every other object and that the force depends on how much mass the objects have and how far apart they are. SC.6.P.13.3 – Investigate and describe that an unbalanced force acting on an object changes its speed, or direction of motion, or both.

     

    Honors

    SC.912.P.12.2 – Analyze the motion of an object in terms of its position, velocity, and acceleration (with respect to a frame of reference) as functions of time. SC.912.P.12.3 – Interpret and apply Newton's three laws of motion. SC.912.P.12.4 – Describe how the gravitational force between two objects depends on their masses and the distance between them. SC.912.P12.5-Apply the law of conservation of linear momentum to interactions, such as collision between objects. SC.912.P.12.6-Qualitatively apply the concept of angular momentum.

    Students will know how to analyze motion of an objects, describe different type of forces and how they change speed and direction. Students will do a speed frayer and mass vs. weight foldable. They will do 2 speed labs and a close passage outline. At the end of these activities the student will take a quiz.

    (We will be doing bell work questions that review 6th and 7th grade standards for the next 14 weeks.)

    Students will review classroom and school wide rule and procedures.

    Student will need to know some keys words about speed and motion. Student will do a vocabulary matrix to help to understand key words for this lesson. Student take a folder test and their folders need to be up to date.

    Students will know the signs of a chemical change and will know the difference between physical and chemical changes. They will also know how temperature can influence a chemical change and what happens to the mass during the change. Student will do a foldable for signs of a chemical change and do a chemical reaction lab. They will watch a video about chemical reactions and answer questions about it. The student will do a series of mini labs to identify what is happing to the mass of a substance after a chemical reaction.

    Standards

    SC.8.P.9.1 – Explore the Law of Conservation of Mass by demonstrating and concluding that mass is conserved when substances undergo physical and chemical changes. SC.8.P.9.2 – Differentiate between physical and chemical changes. SC.8.P.9.3 – Investigate and describe how temperature influences chemical changes.
