Quickwrite – Jan. 8 The Shadow

Dampness lingers in the midnight air. Nearby, an unidentifiable sound pricks at your nerves, repeating every few seconds. Your breath catches in your throat as a long shadow cleaves through the light spilling from a street lamp just around the corner ahead of you. You consider turning back. … What happens…

Science – Discrepant Events Involving Heat

Today we are observing a Science experiment online.  To do this you will start by creating your Science exit slip.  You will watch the first 30 seconds of the video below and then complete your “What I already know” and “hypothesis” sections.  Then you will watch the rest of the video before completing your “observations” and “conclusion”.

For each of the experiments students are to create an exit slip that has:

  • What I already know (or what I think) about this is…
  • My hypothesis is that…because…
  • My observations about the experiment are…
  • In conclusion:
    • revisit hypothesis
    • explain observations
    • what I learned

Still need some help explaining this one?  Watch the video below for more explanation.
