Physical Science Computer Labs by date


COMPUTER LAB TODAY:
Friday, 03/13/2015

1) Take the following quiz using the computer. It is on Bohr models and Electron dot diagrams. You may NOT use your notes, the Internet, or neighbors. :-)
  • Please read the directions at top of quiz!
  • Notice that you can review your answers to see WHICH ONES YOU MISSED after you submit quiz, and
  • you can take it one more time to improve your score. :-)

2) Do the "Who Am I" sheet! (There is a PERIODIC TABLE ON THE BACK.)
  • Show your teacher when you are finished figuring out all 20 "Mystery" elements based on clues given and using the periodic table.
3) Play with Chemistry PHET SIMS

HAVE A HAPPY SPRING BREAK!! :-)

2) Using the following site, answer these questions in your own words:
http://www.chem4kids.com/files/atom_bonds.html
  1. Why do atoms bond together?
  2. What is the idea behind "happy atoms"?
  3. What do atoms do if they have a few too many electrons to have a "full" outer (also called "valence") shell?
  4. What do atoms do if they are really close to having a full outer (or valence) shell of electrons?
  5. It is always easier to [BLANK] one or two electrons than it is to go out and find [BLANK] to fill your shells.
  6. Give an example of an element that "wants" to give electrons away:
  7. Give an example of an element that "wants" to get more electrons:
  8. a) Explain what happens with the fluorine and sodium atoms at the bottom of the first page on this website. b) Include a drawing!
  9. So what is an ionic bond? (also called electrovalent)
  10. What is an ion?
  11. a) Give an example of two elements that make an ionic bond with their atoms. b) Include a drawing!
  12. a) What is a molecule? b) Give an example.
  13. a) What is a compound? b) Give an example.
  14. What is a covalent bond?
  15. A) Give an example of two elements that make a covalent bond with their atoms. B) Include a drawing!

SHARED GOOGLE DRIVE DOCS FOR PHYSICAL SCIENCE

Energy Skate Park!


TEST FOR WORK AND POWER

Tues., Dec. 09 Computer Lab:


Four States of Matter.png

1) Look up the FOUR states of matter.

2) Watch the YouTube video shown in class: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88tK5c0wgH4

3) Create a Word document OR PowerPoint with 5 main ideas AND 5 pictures about EACH of the 4 states of matter:

  • Solid, Liquid, Gas, and Plasma!!
  • SHOW your teacher, and SAVE to your Google Drive or wherever you save your documents.


Tues., Dec. 2nd Computer Lab:

Using Google Chrome, look up egg drop landers to get ideas for yours.

  • Also look up AIR BAGS and CAR SAFETY!
  • You can look up images, web pages, and videos.
  • Turn in a paper today before you leave with the following:
    • If you turned one in yesterday, you will just ADD to that paper!
    • To receive credit, please make sure you NUMBER each of these 1-8 on your paper.
1) Your name (and partner's name if you are a group of 2)
2) Your school appropriate team name
3) A sketch of what your design will look like to make your box a creative, unique vehicle
4) What kind of box you brought today, or what kind you think you will bring tomorrow
5) Which team member will bring the box
6) A list of MATERIALS you plan to bring in the box BY TOMORROW
7) Will you be designing and decorating your car AT HOME, or bringing it to school WEDNESDAY to decorate in class?
8) What did you learn from your research today about Egg Drop Landers, Air Bags, or Car Safety that might influence the design or materials of your lander??!! (This question is worth double points!)

We will TEST the egg drop landers Thursday or FRIDAY of this week!!
