Roller Coaster Project

Scientific Method / lab template (Scientific Literacy) before we start units.

· Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis

· Observation: Five Senses

· Identifying the parts of the Scientific method by experimentation (paper plane experiment)

· Difference between Theory and Law

· Metric System

Units before / During Projects

1. Energy

· Potential and kinetic

· Different types of Energy

· Energy Transformation

· Conservation of Energy

2. Simple machines vs. a Compound machine

· Six simple machines* (Project creating a bridge using two simple machines page 142 Prentice hall) (math: parallel lines and angles)

3. Electricity

· Magnetism/static

· Electric and Magnetic forces

· Electromagnets (positive and negative charge, electric motors, or generators.)

· Attractive or repulsive, and their sizes depend on the magnitudes of the charges

· Insulators

· Close and Open circuit (series and parallel circuits)

Biomes 3-d model/ Invention

Units before / During Projects

4. Cells: Animal and Plant *(3D animal or plant cell project)

· Cell theory and invention of microscope

· Cell organization (cell, tissue, organ, Organ system, organism)

· Life Processes (Characteristics of living things: Movement, Growth, Reproduce, Respond to stimuli, Nutrition and Excretion)

· Cell organelles and function

· Compare and contrast animal and plant cell

5. Weather *(Weather Instruments project)

· Earth’s spheres (Lithosphere, Hydrosphere, Atmosphere and Biosphere)

· Layers of the Atmosphere (Troposphere, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere, Ionosphere and Exosphere).

· Matter: Understanding the arrangements of molecules on a solid, liquid and Gas

· LATITUDE AND LONGITUDE

· Types of clouds and associations with different types of weather (Different types of Precipitation)

· WATER CYCLE

· Air Masses and Fronts (Extreme weather conditions such as Storms, Hurricanes, tornadoes, lighting and thunder) Possible activity tracking Hurricanes (Page 304-305)

· Weather stations (interpreting symbols and data collection) with build weather instruments.

· Climate change and Global warming

6. Ecology/negative human activity *(Biomes Project)

· Biotic and abiotic factors

· Levels of organization (Organism, Population, Community, Ecosystem and Biome)

· Food web and food Chain

· NITROGEN CYCLE

· Limiting factors (Environmental factors that causes a population to decrease)

· Interaction among living things

· EMMITION OF CARBON DIOXIDE AND NEGATIVE EFFECTS TO THE ENVIRONMENT

· Adaptation (Taped Hand activity) benefits and negative

· Symbiosis (Mutualism, Commensalism, Parasitism)

· Succession (Primary and Secondary Succession)

Science skills:

· Data collection and Graphing (beginning)

· Density (during weather or ecology)

· Classification (During ecology or cells)

· Measuring and usage of Triple Beam Balance

· Microscope (cell)
