Cover Work for 7C – Friday Period 1

Hello grade 7C!

As you know, I’m at the Chiku Centre but that doesn’t mean you get to miss out on work.  Here is was you need to do.  I’ll be back by period 2 to check up on you! 🙂

The Periodic Table of Elements

Make sure you are logged in to BrainPop using the nine dots on the top right corner of your gmail.

  1. If you didn’t finish the activity from yesterday, using your headphones, watch the video again and finish the sheet.  (You can handwrite the rest of the answers on it).
  2. Take the classic quiz for Periodic Table of Elements video.  You need to get at least 8/10 before moving to the next step!  I will check your result!

Investigating Atoms

In this activity, you are going to use the simulation found here.  You are going to work with a partner.  you might like to have the simulation open on one computer and use your iPads to access the google doc through your google classroom app.

  1. Click on the simulation below and then click on atom.
  2. Play with the simulation.  Try dragging protons, neutrons and electrons into the atom and see what happens.

In the Google Classroom, there is an activity for you called Investigating Atoms.

  1. Open the Investigating Atoms doc on your iPad, through Google Classroom.
  2. On the simulation, make sure all three boxes under Show are ticked.

  3. You are aiming to build neutral atoms that are stable.  They should look like this example for Helium.
    Build an Atom 1.1.2
  4. Complete the table on the google doc.  The first row is for Helium and I’ve filled it in for you from the picture above.
  5. Follow the rest of the instructions on the google doc.

G10C – Cover for Friday

Hi Grade 10C

I’m sick and in bed.  Hope you are all feeling well!  Here is your work for today….

  1. Finish all the questions in the booklet I shared with you yesterday about static electricity and charges.
  2. Correct your work by looking here.
  3. Read pages 124 to 127 in your text book and answer the questions.
  4. Work through the questions in this hand out, using the simulation below.
Circuit Construction Kit (DC Only)

Click to Run

(Having trouble getting the simulation to work? Go to system preferences and privacy and security. Click ‘open anyway’).

Have a great weekend!

Grade 7C – Cover work for Friday

Hello Grade 7C

Today you are going to do some Science in Tutor since you had three periods of tutor yesterday!

  1. You will finish the practice science test we started in class yesterday.
    Work together and check your answers with at least 3 other people to make sure you all agree.  See you on Monday for the test!  🙂
  2. Global Travel Task – have a go at the task below.

Make sure you understand everything ready for the test on Monday! 🙂  If you don’t, send me an email.  I’ll be online!

Grade 11 A and B – Cover work for Friday

Google hangoutHi Grade 11’s.  I’m sick and at home.  I will be online during your class today though.  If you need my help, or want to ask me something, you can google hangout me from our Google+ community!

Just click the hangout button on the top right corner and search for me.

Here is the work you need to do today….

Homework check

Check your homework.  Hopefully you marked your homework already since it is out of the text book.  If there were any questions you got stuck on, discuss them at your table.

If you still can’t solve the problem, post the question on the Google+ community (atomic structure category) and I or someone else in the community will get back to you!

The Electromagnetic Spectrum

Take a look at the following graphic.

Take a few minutes to study this graphic yourself.  With a partner, discuss the following:

  1. What do you see?  Describe the picture.  Point out all the features shown on the graphic.
  2. What do you think?  What is this graphic about?  What is it trying to show you?  How might this be related to our topic on atomic structure?
  3. What do you wonder?  What questions do you have about this graphic?  Is there anything that confuses or puzzles you?

It is important to note how frequencyenergy, wavelength and colour change across the spectrum.  Make sure you’ve noted what increases and what decreases as you move from left to right.

The Hydrogen Spectrum

Use headphones to watch the media on this post together with your partner.  If you are lucky, Mrs Harrison may be there to show you the hydrogen spectrum on our special carousel!  If not, I will show you next week.

Draw and label a diagram showing all the possible transitions by electrons to the first, second and third energy levels.  Include the following on your diagram:

  • Name the series
  • What type of electromagnetic radiation is emitted when the electrons drop to the lower energy level (ie UV, visible light or infrared).
  • Label the energy levels on the y-axis

Watch the following video that talks about where electrons hang out around an atom.

Discuss with your partner what this video is talking about. Draw the shapes of an s orbital and the three p orbitals in your notebook.

Conclusion

Take a moment to add any new information that is relevant to one or more of your questions on your fish diagram.  If you have some questions from the material presented today, put them on the Google+ in the Atomic Structure category.

If you have time left, you can use it to work on your lab report.

10A Science

Friday periods 7/8

Test revision

  1. With your partner, have a look at a couple of the concept maps prepared by 10C for our topic of Ecosystems.Recently Added-6Recently Added-7IMG_0279IMG_0280
    1. Are they well organised?
    2. Have they missed anything important?
    3. Have they connected related ideas?
    4. Is there enough detail?
  2. Now have a go on making your own.  You can use the pens and pencils in the stationary drawer.
  3. Once you are happy with it, photograph it and upload it to the google classroom as a class comment.  (I will look at these to make sure they are complete).
  4. Try some practice test questions.  Make sure you check the answers!
