9 LT- Patterns in the distance as

MS-PS2-1.
We will watch Bill Nye Motion. In your notebook, record three applications of each of Newton's three laws of motion from the video.
In your journal label a page Newton's Catapult and determine the average mass of a Kraft stick, glue stick, three small one large rubber bands, one large, one projectile and the green and white cap options, record your data in your journal. With your partner, research possible designs, then make a sketch of your prototype catapult. You will work in groups of two at your table.
Your mission (Write this down in your journal): Construct the lightest possible catapult made from just the given materials to hit a 30 x 30 x 30 cm target with greater than 50% accuracy from a position on your lab desk. Your unsecured catapult MUST have a total mass less than 80 grams, including the projectile. Your cap, and rubber bands may NOT be glued to your catapult directly. (Tape interface works)

Today: Log onto your computer, read and complete reading and websites for Storm the Castle Lab. Put your answers into your notebook grade cam bubble sheet, and highlight the answers in your lab. (Make a copy) We will come back to building your catapult Wednesday. (This lab will help a great deal with your future catapult construction.)

Wrap up
Newton's Dark Secrets
We will watch "Newton's dark secrets" and wrap it up Monday before we begin to build our catapults.
Things to answer BEFORE Monday;
What is the mass of my projected design?
How will I control velocity and angle?
How far are you from the target? (How far do you need to shoot?)
How far can my design shoot?
Please note-
Any designs with extra material, over mass or designs without a lack of controlling the amount or duration of force, will be rejected before building beings.

Set up an experiment to test the first of Newton's Laws

Your materials are:

Compass, ring with four settings, (Closed, A,B and C) Two different mass marbles, ruler, one mini yellow traffic cone, stopwatch.

Your experiment should have a title, claim, procedure, three drawings, evidence data table and reasoning conclusion. Then completeMomentum and Collisionsand answer all questions.

You need your headphones/notebook.
Watch the following videos in order.
In order, Title a page "Minute Physics" and write down two facts in your notebook about each video.(10 things on the Bill Nye on Chemical Reactions!)
We will then talk about how Newton's laws define chemical reactions, and what the definition of a chemical reaction is.

Wednesday11/9/16Parts of an atom.

You need your notebook. Label a page in your notebook "Atomic Structure" Take notes on the structure of an atom. The "Sub" should cover a brief review of 7th grade content and then we will move on with our 8th grade "Molecules are the building blocks of life" objectives. We will finish the month talking about how life changes over time.
