Module 4 light and sound show

Standards

Content

S8P2. Students will be familiar with the forms and transformations of energy.

a. Explain energy transformation in terms of the Law of Conservation of

Energy.

c. Compare and contrast the different forms of energy (heat, light, electricity,

mechanical motion, and sound) and their characteristics.

S8P4. Students will explore the wave nature of sound and electromagnetic radiation.

a. Identify the characteristics of electromagnetic and mechanical waves.

c. Explain how the human eye sees objects and colors in terms of wavelengths.

Characteristics

S8CS1. Students will explore the importance of curiosity, honesty, openness, and skepticism in science and will exhibit these traits in their own efforts to understand how the world works.

a. Understand the importance of—and keep—honest, clear, and accurate records in science.

S8CS2. Students will use standard safety practices for all classroom laboratory and field investigations.

a. Follow correct procedures for use of scientific apparatus.

b. Demonstrate appropriate techniques in all laboratory situations.

c. Follow correct protocol for identifying and reporting safety problems and violations.

Standards

Characteristics

S8CS4. Students will use tools and instruments for observing, measuring, and manipulating equipment and materials in scientific activities utilizing safe laboratory procedures.

a. Use appropriate technology to store and retrieve scientific information in topical, alphabetical,

numerical, and keyword files, and create simple files.

b. Use appropriate tools and units for measuring objects and/or substances.

c. Learn and use standard safety practices when conducting scientific investigations.

S8CS6. Students will communicate scientific ideas and activities clearly.

a. Write clear, step-by-step instructions for conducting scientific investigations, operating a piece of

equipment, or following a procedure. b. Write for scientific purposes incorporating information from a circle, bar, or line graph, data tables,

diagrams, and symbols.

S8CS9. Students will understand the features of the process of scientific inquiry.

Students will apply the following to inquiry learning practices:

a. Investigations are conducted for different reasons, which include exploring new phenomena,

confirming previous results, testing how well a theory predicts, and comparing different theories.

Scientific investigations usually involve collecting evidence, reasoning, devising hypotheses, and

formulating explanations to make sense of collected evidence.

b. Scientific investigations usually involve collecting evidence, reasoning, devising hypotheses, and

formulating explanations to make sense of collected evidence.

c. Scientific experiments investigate the effect of one variable on another. All other variables are kept

constant.

f. Scientists use technology and mathematics to enhance the process of scientific inquiry.


Enduring understandings

Enduring Understandings

  • Colors observed by the eye are the result of multiple wavelengths reflected by the object.

  • Waves carry energy.

Teacher reflection

Teacher Reflection

What were the “Big Concepts” in each activity?

How will students make sense of these concepts?

Discuss real-world examples that may reinforce students’ understanding.

Homework, accommodations for students with disabilities, gifted students, ELL

What other standards and elements might one introduce at this time to unify the concepts?

What are some common student misconceptions and how can these activities facilitate the student’s proper conception and understanding?
