Today we are talking about fossil fuels as part of the rock cycle and the Earth’s crust. Check out the assigned work from class and the video below.
Here is the mindmap from our class conversation prior to research.
We have been studying the Earth’s Crust and the drift of tectonic plates. Today we are watching a documentary on the deepest place on Earth.
Here is a copy of the questions for the video
Here is the video from class
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.
Today we are going to measure how temperature relates to the change of state of matter. To do this we will use ice and a hotplate to measure as we heat the substance.
Here are the materials used in this lesson:
Check out this video of dry ice for an example of a matter changing directly from solid to gas.

e the assignment materials followed in class.
Today we are going to get an initial run at particle theory and molecules. We have already discussed some elements of this but today we are going to go onto Discovery Techbook to take some initial notes on molecules and how they make up our universe. To get to Discovery Techbook you need to visit the AEMS homepage and follow the provided link to the website. Then students will use their regular school log in information to access their “assignment”.
Students are to complete the “Essential Question” below using the notes taken from online. They are to submit their notes along with their complete answers to the questions.
What are molecules made of and what are their properties?
How are compounds different from the elements from which they are formed?
How can you predict how atoms will combine to form a molecule?
How can ionic compounds break into pieces?
Your assignment is to take notes of the following page and then directly use those notes to answer the essential questions below:
The link above brings you to the page. But…you will first need to go to the schools main page, follow the link to Discovery, and then log in using your regular user name and password. Then open the link.
- What are molecules made of and what are their properties?
- How are compounds different from the elements from which they are formed?
- How can you predict how atoms will combine to form a molecule?
- How can ionic compounds break into pieces?
Note: this assignment is not yet on Edsby as we are still waiting for some setup to be done prior to accessing.
Today we talked about how air and fluid react differently to pressure with different compressability and transfer of force. The videos we watched below help to gain background understanding. The handout was provided in class and can be accessed on the white shelves at the back of the classroom.
