Wednesday, January 24th

Today in science: The details of a trifold brochure were shared with students in class. This assignment is meant to help students summarize and synthesize the content learned in Lesson Cluster 1 – “States of Water.” Here is a basic outline of the content of each of the six pages (1, A4-sized paper folded twice).

Page 1, the official cover, must have a title (“States of Water”) and subtitle. The subtitle must contain the words “matter” and “molecules.” There must also be an image or drawing that reflects the title/subtitle of the brochure.

Page 2, the solid water (“ice”) page, must clearly demonstrate your knowledge of the spacing and movement of water molecules in ice.

Page 3, the liquid water (“water”) page, must clearly demonstrate your knowledge of the spacing and movement of water molecules in (liquid) water.

Page 4, the gaseous water (“vapor”) page, must clearly demonstrate your knowledge of the spacing and movement of water molecules in water vapor.

Page 5, the water molecule page, must mention the following words: atom (or atoms), hydrogen, and oxygen. This page must also clearly demonstrate your knowledge of size and shape/organization of a water molecule.

Page 6, the official back page, must contain the author’s name (first, last), student number, imaginary company/organization name and title (e.g., CEO, Mad Molecules SA), date of publication (e.g., January 2018), and TASIS student email address. It should also list our school’s address: The American School in Switzerland (TASIS), Via Collina d’Oro 15, 6926, Montagnola, CH

Homework: 

Monday, January 22nd

Today in science: Many students were absent from school today, but those that were in class received marked/evaluated Question Set 1.4. On this paper, students could see how Dr. Merritt would have graded them if they had been part of a quiz or test. Much of the class was spent discussing and highlighting the most common errors and most important ideas and concepts. In response to a number of student questions, some class time was also spent discussing the relationship between a) cells and molecules, b) cells and life, and c) molecules and life.

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.
