  1. 1. Today in Science <ul><li>You will Need: </li></ul><ul><li>Pencil, Colored Pencils, Highlighters or Markers </li></ul><ul><li>Physical Properties Lab – 2 pages 3 sides- Bookshelf </li></ul><ul><li>Progress Notice Due today </li></ul><ul><li>Metric Review Due today </li></ul>
  2. 2. Assignment Log #2 9/13 9/20 Binder Check #1 100 9/13 9/14 Matter Power Notes 50   9/14 9/16 Science Progress Notice - Signed 40 9/14 9/16 Metric Review - end of period   9/16 9/19 Physical Properties Lab - end of period 55  
  3. 3. Binder Check #1 & Test #1 <ul><li>Binder check is graded for ORGANIZATION – if you have the papers in the correct order and all are included, this is an easy assignment to get an “A” on. </li></ul><ul><li>The Binder is due at the beginning of the period . While you take your test, I will grade your binders. </li></ul><ul><li>Test #1 – Create a ½ page of notes , front side only and done by hand . Target Concepts listed on Learning Point </li></ul>
  4. 4. Do You Remember: <ul><li>What tool measures mass? </li></ul><ul><li>If water is at 24 degrees Celsius what state will it be in? How do you know? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the metric unit for length? </li></ul><ul><li>Abbreviation for centimeter? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the abbreviation for kiloliter? </li></ul><ul><li>In a thermometer, where do you read the meniscus? </li></ul><ul><li>What is the formula for Methane? </li></ul><ul><li>What waste product do plants produce that we need from photosynthesis? </li></ul>

  6. 6. <ul><li>How do Scientists Identify a Substance (Matter)? </li></ul><ul><li>Why do scientists classify items? </li></ul>In this simple investigation you will observe and record the physical attributes of a specific item. You will need to make sure your data is not only ACCURATE but that you pay close attention to the specific details of your item.
  7. 7. Lab Directions <ul><li>Problem : After making careful observations and recording detailed characteristics, can the same item be later identified by its unique qualities? </li></ul><ul><li>Materials : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1 Unique item bag per table (each team member receives one item out of 4 in the bag) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>cm ruler – cut from pg. 3 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pencil </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Colored pencils </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lab sheets </li></ul></ul>
