G6 Week 03 – S2

Friday, February 16th

Today in science: Using the “Variables” page within the SCIENCEsEDiment website, students were asked to write definitions in their lab notebooks for the three types of scientific variables. After writing definitions for the manipulated and responding variables, Dr. Merritt asked students to identify these variables in two hypothetical experiments. These two experiments can be seen HERE (PS22) and HERE (LS12). Students will have more opportunities to practice identifying variables on Monday.

Homework: There is no science homework this weekend.

Today in science: We used the early part of class to review, by reading aloud and highlighting together, Lesson 2.2 “Pure Substances and Mixtures” (pp 5-6). Students were then given class time to begin reading Lesson 2.3 and working on Question Set 2.3 “Molecules in States of Matter”. Lesson 2.3 is the final lesson in Lesson Cluster 2.

Homework: Students have been asked to complete questions 1-5 on Question Set 2.3 “Molecules in States of Matter”. Students began answering these questions in class, but not all students were able to complete the assignment during the period. Students are HIGHLY encouraged to use pages 7-9 in Lesson Cluster 2 of their blue packets when writing their answers.
