Monday

All Classes

In class we shared out notes collected from visiting Mrs. Jones’ class and learning about there experiment. Here are some notes I recorded and the class recorded as well: Notes from Jones’ Class    Jone’s Lab Notes

We then spent the rest of the period working on completing the ANALYSIS QUESTIONS to the Unequal Heating Lab. Unequal Heating Earth Lab Worksheet

 Turned in today: Lab share-out notes

Homework: finish analysis questions if not done.

Tuesday

Period 4

Homework: finish analysis questions if not done.

Period 2 and 3

In class we shared out the written responses to the unequal heating lab analysis and then turned the assignment in. We then began working on creating graphs of the climate data for six different locations around the world. Comparing Cities

Selected Location Climate Data

Turned in today: Unequal Heating Lab Packet

Homework: Finish graph for comparing cities and record responses in the boxes comparing conditions in different cities.

Wednesday

Period 1 and 4

In class we shared out the written responses to the unequal heating lab analysis and then turned the assignment in. We then began working on creating graphs of the climate data for six different locations around the world. Comparing Cities

Selected Location Climate Data

Turned in today: Unequal Heating Lab Packet

Homework: Finish graph for comparing cities and record responses in the boxes comparing conditions in different cities.

Period 3

In class we shared and discussed our responses to the graphing of temperature data for locations around the globe. This relates to these two handouts:

Comparing Cities

Selected Location Climate Data

We then began working on reading notes for WIND!

Homework: If you didn’t finish your “comparing cities” worksheet and graph, please finish it up by Friday. Friday there will be a CHECK IN on the information covered on those worksheets.

1/25/17 C-Day

Science Period 3

In class we finished presenting our lab work to Mrs. Jones’ students while her students finished presenting to us. We then returned to the classroom and debriefed what we learned in Mrs. Jones’ class.

Notes from class: Notes from Jones’ Class

Period 1 and 4

In class we wrapped up discussing the unequal heating of Earth’s surfaces lab and then 1/2 the class presented their work to Mrs. Jones class while the other 1/2 went to her class for presentations on their work. Tomorrow we will flip and repeat the share-out and then debrief.

HW – None, but there have been some recent assignments you might need to  finish. Google classroom assignment from last week and completing the front side of the GREEN LAB SHEET.

Homework: None.

1/24/17 B-Day

HW – None, but there have been some recent assignments you might need to  finish. Google classroom assignment from last week and completing the front side of the GREEN LAB SHEET.

 

Period 4

In class we completed collecting our data for differential heating of Earth’s surfaces. We discussed a bit the outcomes of our experiment. Tomorrow we will present the results of our study to Mrs. Jones’ Class.

HW – Complete the FRONT SIDE of the GREEN SHEET handed out today.

 

1.20.17 E Day

Science All Classes

In class students completed a check in on Latitude, Longitude, and seasonal differences in sunlight.

We then spent the rest of the period working on collecting data for our experiment about how there is unequal heating of the globe with different seasons.

HOMEWORK – Finish  Google Classroom Assignment: Seasonal Heating Of Earth’s Surfaces

1/4/17 B-Day

Science Period 2 and 3

Warm Up: Discuss how density is involved with convection. Answer: convection involves the  movement of warm fluid towards cold locations when the cold location  is  above the warm location. The warm fluid (air or water in our class examples) rises because it is less dense. The colder fluid higher up sinks because it is more dense.

Main Activity: Vocabulary Review Game for Heat Transfer Vocab. heat-transfer-vocabulary

Homework: Review vocabulary for quiz next time I see you in class. Also, any test corrections.

Science Period 4

We spent the day reviewing heat transfer and looking  at convection within a chamber of air. This was done by watching smoke from incense move around a fish tank with candles on one side and ice on the other. Here’s a link to notes from the day:

HOMEWORK: test corrections and heat transfer vocabulary review. Quiz on vocab Thursday (per 3) or Friday (per 1, 2, and 4)
