I see something you don’t see I see something you don’t see Presentation Transcript

  • I SEE SOMETHING YOU DON’T SEE… Using scientific instruments to measure/ gather information for making scientific comparisons.
  • TERMS
    • Technology:
      • Tools/ Crafts that people use
    • Comparison:
      • the act or process of examining two or more people or things in order to discover similarities and differences between them
    • Invention:
      • new idea, device, or process
  • STANDARD INDICATOR >4.1.5
    • Demonstrate how measuring instruments, such as microscopes, telescopes, and cameras, can be used to gather accurate information for making scientific comparisons of objects and events. Note that measuring instruments, such as rulers, can also be used for designing and constructing things that will work properly.

  • WHAT THIS IS USED FOR…
    • Is an instrument to see objects too small for the naked eye.
    • It is used to look and observe things such as cells of various things.
    • The Microscope !
    You might see a lot of my within your science labs. Especially in Biology.
  • WHAT IS IT USED FOR?
    • It is used to look at really small things.
    • As the title of the instrument states, it magnifies things because of the shape of the glass within the instrument.
      • Almost like a microscope only not as powerful.
    • The Magnifying Glass
    A man named Sherlock Holmes used this a lot to help him solve his mysteries.
  • WHO WAS THIS INVENTED BY AGAIN?
    • You might think of a man that was named Galileo, but it is actually traced all of the way back before him. It was invented in the Netherlands around the 17 th century.
    • It is an instrument designed for the observation of objects that are far away.
    • The Telescope
    Think of the Stars and Planets when you see on of these?
  • THIS ISN’T THE SAME THING THAT MIGHT SIT ON YOUR BATHROOM FLOOR…
    • a measuring instrument for determining the weight.
    • In order to find the correct weight you might place an actually weight on one side and then the item being weighted on the other.
    • This scale is based on balance.
    • A Weight Scale
    You might have seen me in a kitchen or @ the supermarket.
  • THIS CAN BE USED FOR MANY THINGS IN SCIENCE…
    • a device that records images, either as a still photograph or as moving images known as videos or movies.
    • This can be used to observe and compare animals, rocks, people, trees, almost anything in nature. Even cars and houses.
    • The Camera
    Ahhh, something a little bit more familiar.
  • ACTIVITY
    • Take the nature pictures that are in the box and look at them carefully.
    • What do you see?
    • Think in detail.
      • What colors do you see?
      • How big do each of the objects appear to be?
      • What assumptions could you make from these pictures?
  • ACTIVITY CONT…
    • Now look @ the scientific instrument pictures.
    • Decide which instrument / instruments would be most useful to observe and compare each of the nature pictures.
    • You can go as far as thinking about the objects within the pictures.
      • Ex. What would you use to look @ the planets?
      • Ex. What would you use to see those people in the mountain ruins from far away?
  • ACTIVITY CONT…
    • Have some fun with it.
    • Make up your own questions and let me know the answers.
      • If it is a question that you do not know the answer to, write it down. I might be able to answer it for you.
  • FINALLY
    • Fill out the small sheet that I put together.
    • If you need help, just let me know.
