  • participate in my classroom and community.

Warm Up: 
  • What phase changes occur when energy is added?

Paraphrasing and Research

Learning Target:  I can paraphrase informational text.

HOWLS:  I take initiative for my learning.

Warm Up:  What does "paraphrase" mean?

Paraphrasing practice.
What do you already know about the okapi?

Although the okapi resembles a zebra, it is actually a close cousin to the giraffe. Discovered in 1900, it inhabits the rainforests of the Congo area in Africa. Okapis tend to be solitary animals, secretive in their habits.

Okapis eat mostly leaves, twigs, and fruit which they reach with their long tongues. They may eat as much as 65 pounds of food in one day, mostly during the afternoon and evening when they are most active.

Now Read the first two paragraphs and paraphrase the information.

Monday 12/4 (A, B, C) and Tuesday 12/5 (D) States of Matter Review and Independent Research

Learning Target:  I can explain the differences in particle motion in a solid, liquid, and gas.

HOWLS Target:  Responsibility.  I come to class on time, and am prepared for learning.  I write the learning target and answer the warm up.

Warm Up:  What does it mean for something to be "frozen"?  

Review for quiz (Wednesday)
Review demos from Thursday/Friday
Thermal expansion  the increase in volume of matter when it is exposed to an increase in temperature.

This phenomenon occurs because particles move at higher speeds during higher temperatures and hence will take up more space.
