Presentation Transcript

  1. Life Science – 9/1/11 • Write your first and last name on the front of the card. • On the back, answer these questions. One sentence each: • LIKE - What do you like about science? • STRUGGLE - What do you struggle with in science? • LEARNER - Do you think you are a visual, verbal, or kinesthetic (learning by doing) type of learner? • GRADE - What grade do you hope to get?

  2. Rules Role Play • Example or Non-example • Must be school appropriate and short (2-3 minutes) • I can play myself, or you can be teacher. • Brainstorm, notes, design, rehearse – TIME. • Each group will present.

  3. Life Science – 9/2/11 On your Entry Task Answer Sheet, under “FRIDAY” • What are the three big ideas of science? • List 3 topics we will study this year. • How much is this entry task worth? • When finished, wait for Ms. Maring to get your paper. • Look at the words on your class tree. Choose TWO things you are curious about.

  4. Grow your learning goals… • On your leaf/acorn, write your name. • Write one topic you are interested in learning on the front. • When you have reached that learning goal, you will “harvest” these and answer 5 questions (worth 5 points) • Repeat process on another leaf/acorn. • When finished, hold up both leaves/acorns.

  5. Rules Role Play Presentations • Matrix – • Expectations for group work: RESPECT • Self • Others • Property • We will be watching one or two presentations.

  6. Design your T-shirt • Include drawings or cut-out photos which describe “Who you are.” • These can be favorite things to do, family, music, sports, books, pets, etc. • Your T-shirt will be displayed – make it nice! • RESPECT PROPERTY – lids on markers, conserve glue, pick up scraps, share supplies.

  7. Life Science – 9/6/11 • Fill out top of Entry Task Sheet – • week 9/6-9/9 • Keep until Friday in binder. • TUESDAY - What are 3 expectations in Ms. Maring’s class?

  24. Practice Makes Perfect • First, check if you have a watch or phone which can time 30 seconds. • With your elbow partner, you will be timing how PRACTICE affects your ability to PERFORM A TASK. • Leave the handout face up: “QUESTION”…. • Read the entire procedure as a class. • Begin with one partner performing task and other partner recording DATA. Practice 3 times. • Switch roles.

  25. Life Science 9/13/11 • Entry Task – TUESDAY • COFFEE – living, dead or nonliving? Explain. • For 2 points – list 6 characteristics of living things. • When finished, set up phone or watch for stop-watch timing. • CLASS TIMER

  26. RESPECT PROPERTY • PLEASE use glue sticks sparingly (means use what you need and don’t wreck them). • PLEASE put caps back on. • PLEASE don’t wreck stuff for fun. It wrecks it for everyone • PLEASE support your neighbors in doing the right thing!

  27. On page 7 and 8 • Enter your “Practice Makes Perfect” sheet on page 7. • Enter a piece of graph paper on page 8. • We will be creating a bar graph on page 8. • Be tidy and use a ruler. • Draw your axes. What will go on each axis? LABEL THEM. How tall should the Y-axis be? How many bars will we have? • Write a title “How does practice affect performing a task.” • With your partner, draw the bars, evenly spaced to the right height.

  28. Life Science 9/14/11 • Entry Task – Wednesday • Five people conducted “practice makes perfect.” Their scores were 11, 8, 22, 6, and 13. What was the average score? • Show your work + correct answer = 3 points. • Help each other. • When finished, open notebooks and work on graphs.

  29. On page 7 • At the bottom, describe the data in two sentences. “DATA ANALYSIS” • Answer the original question in two more sentences. “CONCLUSION” • What does your graph show you about practicing? Did your performance increase or decrease with practice?

  30. Life Science 9/15/11 • Entry Task – Thursday • Please REWRITE to help make this impersonal and scientific: • “Data Analysis: In the activity, “Practice Makes Perfect” first our number went up from 11 to 12, and then down to 10.” (3 pts) • HINT – Use words like increase, decrease, average, students, etc. • When finished, reread your data analysis and conclusion. Is it scientific and impersonal?

  31. Completing “Practice Makes Perfect” • Data Analysis: • Conclusion:

  32. CONGRATULATIONS! • You have just completed your first scientific investigation in Biology using the scientific method!! • We’ll be doing this again, so, what are the steps of the scientific method?

  33. On page 9… • Enter the “Designing an Investigation” page and keep it forever • What steps are on the sheet? Look down the left column.

  34. Life Science 9/16/11 • Entry Task – FRIDAY • What are the steps of the scientific method? • Are you missing any answers on this entry task sheet? • Help each other fill in any missing answers. • When finished, open notebook to page 10.

  35. Watch one scientist conduct an investigation… • As you watch, put your finger on the steps of the scientific method on your orange sheet. • Now we’ll take a few notes… • Then we’ll throw paper airplanes. Am I kidding?

  36. On page 10: What are the steps of the Scientific Method? • What is the first step? • What happens after the question? • Asking an investigative question. It should be written in this format: • How does_______________ affect______________? • Make a prediction or HYPOTHESIS!

  37. On page 10: What are the steps of the Scientific Method? • Yes! • Take the “how does” for the “if” part. • Put the “affect” line for the “then” part. • Add a scientific reason. • If_____________________________________ • Then__________________________________ • Because________________________________. • Can I change the question into a hypothesis? • Try it!

  38. On page 10 • Example: Write a question and hypothesis for this scenario: • Jane and Gypsy are curious whether temperature makes soap bubbles pop faster. • Investigative Question: • How does_______________ affect______________? • If_____________________________________ • Then__________________________________ • Because________________________________.

  39. Life Science 9/19/11 • Entry Task – Monday • Turn this scenario into an investigative question, in the format “How does _________ affect ___________?” • Bill and Sandy wonder if summer heat causes the ripening of tomatoes. • When finished, paste the paper airplane investigation onto pages 11 and 12. Read it. • Curious about the tomato question? ANSWER

  40. On page 11 and 12 • Enter the “Investigating Flight Distance with model airplanes” sheets. • Which wing shape do you think will fly furthest? Write your hypothesis! • Ms. M will assign groups and flight zones. • Conduct experiment and collect data – MEASURING IN CENTIMETERS!!! • Sit down to share data.

  41. Metric vs. the American Measurement System • In your head, add up 36 inches plus 36 inches. • Now add up 100 centimeters plus 100 centimeters. • Which was easier? • Metric is based on TENS (not 12) which makes it easier to convert. • Use meter sticks appropriately!

  42. RULES • ALL airplanes will be left in this room with Ms. Maring. • NO horseplay with scientific equipment: model planes, meter sticks, etcetera. • VOLUME – quiet and conversational—no yelling. • EVERYONE will record data and participate. • ONE person per team will be the thrower as a scientific control. • Nominate THROWER, two MEASURERS, DATA Manager – checks if data is recorded in all data tables. 0.50.5

  43. Life Science 9/20/11 • Entry Task – Tuesday • Change the question, “How does summer heat affect the ripening of tomatoes?” into a hypothesis. (Look at your orange sheet!) • If_____________________________________ • Then__________________________________ • Because________________________________. • When finished, check that everyone in your group has the data from yesterday.
