Science Assessment Tasks Categorization Complete

  1. 1. Answer the following question on the blank purple sheet using complete sentences, appropriate language, and include any necessary data or information to best answer the question. 1. Categorize all of the objects listed below into 2 or more categories based on their properties. You should explain how you came up with the categories, and explore for EACH OBJECT why you placed it in that category: Objects: Earth, Venus, Saturn, the Sun, the Moon, Io (one of Jupiter’s satellites), Ceres (an asteroid), and Sirius (a star). 2. (will be presented by slide about 5 minutes after question 1 is provided) What if the following objects were added to your list? Expand your response to #1 with the added items: Pluto, Mars, Vega, Comet Hale-Bopp 3. (will be presented about 5 minutes after question 2 is provided) Recategorize your list of objects so that they are classified by composition of the object. Explain how this would affect your previous categorization and classification of the objects.
  2. 2. Answer the following question on the blank purple sheet using complete sentences, appropriate language, and include any necessary data or information to best answer the question. 1. Below are listed several objects – for each, list at least two properties about that object based on what you know about it, and state what “category” each object might fit into based on these. Objects: Earth, Venus, Saturn, the Sun, the Moon, Io (one of Jupiter’s satellites), Ceres (an asteroid), and Sirius (a star). Categories: Stars, Satellites of Stars, Satellites of Planets 2. (will be presented by slide about 5 minutes after question 1 is provided) What if the following objects were added to your list? Expand your response to #1 with the added items: Pluto, Mars, Vega, Comet Hale-Bopp 3. (will be presented about 5 minutes after question 2 is provided) Recategorize your list of objects so that they are classified by size of the object. Explain how this would affect your previous categorization and classification of the objects.
  3. 3. Answer the following question on the blank blue sheet using complete sentences, appropriate language, and include any necessary data or information to best answer the question. 1. Using the list of objects below, generate at least two different categories of objects that these could be divided into. Define each category, and explain why each of the objects would fit the categories you just defined. Objects: Earth, Venus, Saturn, the Sun, the Moon, Io (one of Jupiter’s satellites), Ceres (an asteroid), and Sirius (a star). 2. (will be presented by slide about 5 minutes after question 1 is provided) What if the following objects were added to your list? Expand your response to #1 with the added items: Pluto, Mars, Vega, Comet Hale-Bopp 3. (will be presented about 5 minutes after question 2 is provided) Recategorize your list of objects so that they are classified by location of the object. Explain how this would affect your previous categorization and classification of the objects.
  4. 4. Answer the following question on the blank blue sheet using complete sentences, appropriate language, and include any necessary data or information to best answer the question. 1. Describe each of the objects listed below. Objects: Earth, Venus, Saturn, the Sun, the Moon, Io (one of Jupiter’s satellites), Ceres (an asteroid), and Sirius (a star). From your descriptions, create at least two possible categories to classify these or other objects. 2. (will be presented by slide about 5 minutes after question 1 is provided) What if the following objects were added to your list? Expand your response to #1 with the added items: Pluto, Mars, Vega, Comet Hale-Bopp 3. (will be presented about 5 minutes after question 2 is provided) Recategorize your list of objects so that they are classified by another set of properties (different from what you selected in problem 1). Explain how this would affect your previous categorization and classification of the objects.
