Mr. Murduck’s Homework/Practice 12/15 – 12/19
Monday – Science – Today I will discuss the scientific method and the design
process. There are some similarities and differences between the two
scientific procedures. We will be using both processes in the near future.
You will be responsible for understanding each process for next test which
will be in February. Homework- Grade printouts will be passed out and are
due signed and returned by Friday! Read the Space packet passed out Friday!
Complete the definitions and questions by restating in complete sentences!
Tuesday - Science – Today we will be watching a documentary video on Apollo
13. The astronauts of Apollo 13 narrowly survived a mission scheduled to
land on the moon. They survived because the astronauts and NASA used the
design process. You will be taking notes during the video and completing the
handout passed out in class relating to the video and the the design
process. Homework- Grade printouts are due signed and returned by Friday!
Complete the question handout passed out in class relating to both the Apollo
13 video and the handout on the design process passed out in class!
Wednesday – Science – Today we will discuss Tuesday’s video and questions.
We will also do more to compare the design process to the scientific
method.We will watch a short Brain-Pop video on the scientific method.
Homework- Grade printouts are due signed and returned by Friday! Complete
the Venn diagram passed out in class by comparing the scientific method to
the design process. Each process should have at least 6 steps as discussed
in class. Some of these steps will overlap in the Venn diagram meaning they
are the same.
Thursday – Science – Today we will complete an experiment in class. This
experiment will use the scientific method. Students will work with a partner
and complete the handout passed out in class. Homework- Grade printouts are
due signed and returned by tomorrow! Finish the Extended content reading and
questions passed out in class. Complete the lab/experiment handout each
students received in class if needed.
Friday – Science -Today we will an early release schedule followed by an
assembly in the gym. Homework – Have a safe and fun Holiday!
