G7 Week 06 – S2

Last week in science!

Lesson 1 – Monday, March 1st

Today in science: EV3 Thermoprobe Challenge teams were given time to work on the any–or all–of the following:

1) Capture video footage of their best temperature-taking attempt.
2) Capture temperature data from their best temperature-taking attempt.
3) Upload copies of the video and data files (e.g., data tables, line graphs) to their individual assignment portal in the Google Science Classroom.
4) Record a voice track over the video that explains all of the actions demonstrated during the video in which the EV3 clearly demonstrated the proper (scientific) use of the temperature probe (althought some students have proposed to write a sort of narrative video ‘script’ instead).

Remote students continued working their way through the Mars Launch simulation (game).

Homework: There is no science homework tonight.

Lesson 2 – Tues/Wed, March 2nd-3rd

Today in science: Whereas most C period students continued working in their EV3 teams to try and get further in the Thermoprobe Challenge, H period students–who have mostly completed the Challenge–were grouped into new teams in order to begin playing the MARSBOUND: MISSION TO THE RED PLANET simulation game.

Homework: Those EV3 teams yet to upload their required documents to the Google Science Classroom (see Monday, March 1st entry above) should do so as soon as possible. For all students who have completed that task, there is no science homework tonight.

Lesson 3 – Wed/Thur, March 3rd-4th

Today in science: Both C and H period students either began–or continued playing–the MARSBOUND: MISSION TO THE RED PLANET simulation game. While in-person students worked in teams, remote students worked on the early stages of the game individually.

Homework (H period only!): Near the end of Thursday’s class, Dr. M asked each H period student to complete a 4-question worksheet called the “Pre-Ideas” worksheet. There are no right/wrong answers to the question or special resources to use. The use of a mind/brain is all that is required. Please don’t forget that there are questions on BOTH sides of the one-page handout. The questions must be completed before the beginning of Friday’s science class.

Lesson 4 – Friday, March 5th

Today in science: Both C and H period students continued playing the MARSBOUND: MISSION TO THE RED PLANET simulation game. While in-person students worked in teams, remote students worked with Dr. M online.

Homework (C period only!): Near the end of Friday’s class, Dr. M asked each C period student to complete a 4-question worksheet called the “Pre-Ideas” worksheet. There are no right/wrong answers to the question or special resources to use. The use of a mind/brain is all that is required. Please don’t forget that there are questions on BOTH sides of the one-page handout. The questions must be completed before the beginning of Monday’s science class.
