MS Framework 2a and 2b   Common Core1 and 2

 

TSW review Motion including Describing Motion, Acceleration, and Motion and Forces

 

Eagle Challenge (3-5 minutes)

TSW answer the bellwork question: 1. Explain the difference between balanced forces and unbalanced forces. 2. Draw and illustration that shows balanced forces and unbalanced force. TSW have 5 minutes to read and respond to the questions.

Learning Tasks/Activities

TTW review the main ideas of chapter 2 Motion page 61. TSW answer the Chapter 2 Review questions 1-22 on pages 62-63. 

TUESDAY

Focus of Lesson

 (Student-Friendly Objective & #s)

MS Framework 2a and 2b Common Core 4

TSW test on Motion including Describing Motion, Acceleration, and Motion & Forces

Eagle Challenge (3-5 minutes)

TSW be given 5 minutes to review  for the post-assessment on chapter 2 Motion

Learning Tasks/Activities

TSW answer the post-assessment on Motion. TSW then answer the pre-test on Chapter3 Forces. TTW then put the new chapter 3 vocab words on the smartboard and ask students what they think each word means. TSW then use the textbook to define the chapter 3 vocab words. TSW also draw an illustration of each new vocab word in chapter 3.

WEDNESDAY

Focus of Lesson

 (Student-Friendly Objective & #s)

MS Framework 2a, 2b, 2c    Common Core 2 and 5

 

TSW define and explain Newton’s second law of motion. TSW Apply Newton’s second law of motion to current situations. TSW differentiate the three different types of friction. TSW observe the effects of air resistance on falling objects.

SET: TTW ask students what they do when they have heavy objects to move. TTW discuss the individual responses and ask for justification for personal answers.

TTW explain that in this section they will learn how the mass of an object affects how fast they can move it, and why some objects keep moving while others stop.

Eagle Challenge (3-5 minutes)

TSW read page 30 in the textbook “Thinking in pictures: and other reports from my life with autism.” TSW then answer questions 1-3 on page 30: 1. How do people with autism think differently than other people? 2. What did the author use to see from a cow’s point of view? 3. What did the author use for models to design things when she was a child? TSW be given 5 minutes to read the passage and answer the questions. TTW discuss the questions and question students on their individual responses.

Learning Tasks/Activities

 TSW read chapter 3 section 1 in groups of 2 ( based on ability) and make their own notes after reading each paragraph orally to each other. TSW be given 20-25 minutes to complete the task (depending on what is needed). TTW then explain any misconceptions of this section by using a power point to discuss the notes. TSW answer the Self Check questions on page 74 (1-5). TSW also answer the chapter 3 section 1 Directed Reading and Reinforcement questions pertaining to Newton’s second law. TTW demonstrate how to calculate acceleration page 69. TSW answer Acceleration practice problems 1-4 on page 69. Mini Lab on Comparing Friction page 71

THURSDAY

Focus of Lesson

 (Student-Friendly Objective & #s)

MS Framework 2a, 2b, 2c   Common Core 2 and 5

 

TSW Describe gravitational force. TSW distinguish between mass and weight. TSW explain why objects that are thrown follow a curved path. TSW compare circular motion with motion in a straight line

Eagle Challenge (3-5 minutes)

TSW first answer a question as a bell activity. TSW Distinguish between rolling friction, sliding friction, and static friction. TSW will have 5 minutes to read the question and respond.

SET: TTW ask the students to describe how a football must be thrown  for a long pass. TTW discuss the questions and question students on their individual responses.

TTW explain that in this section they will learn how the force of gravity affects the motion of projectiles such as a football.

Learning Tasks/Activities

TSW read chapter 3 section 2 in groups of 3( by ability) and make their own notes after reading each paragraph orally to each other. TSW be given 20-25 minutes to complete the task (depending on what is needed). TTW then explain any misconceptions of this section by using a power point to discuss the notes. TSW answer the Self Check questions on page 82 (1-5). TSW also answer the chapter 3 section 2 Directed Reading and Reinforcement questions pertaining to Gravity. Mini Lab Observing Centripetal Force page 81

 FRIDAY

Focus of Lesson

 (Student-Friendly Objective)

MS Framework 2a, 2b, 2c     Common Core 2 and 5

 

TSW Explain Newton’s Third Law of Motion. TSW identify action and reaction forces. TSW calculate momentum. TSW explain how momentum is conserved.

 

Eagle Challenge (3-5 minutes)

TSW first answer a question as a bell activity. TSW explain the difference between weight and mass. TSW will have 5 minutes to read the question and respond. TSW turn in all bell work questions and answers for this past week.

SET: TTW have students to recall the motion of an untied, inflated balloon and the motion of a rocket. TTW explain that the motion of the balloon and the rocket are governed by Newton’s third law of motion.

TTW explain that in this section they will learn more about Newton’s third law.

Learning Tasks/Activities

TSW read chapter 3 section 3 in groups of 2( by ability) and make their own notes after reading each paragraph orally to each other. TSW be given 20-25 minutes to complete the task (depending on what is needed). TTW then explain any misconceptions of this section by using a power point to discuss the notes. TSW answer the Self Check questions on page 88 (1-5). TSW also answer the chapter 3 section32 Directed Reading and Reinforcement questions pertaining to the Third Law of Motion. TTW demonstrate how to calculate momentum. TSW calculate momentum practice problems 1-4 on page 86
