2. Then, answer the following questions:
- What was the hardest part of this activity?
- Which organs do you think you put in the right places?
- Which organs do you think are probably in the wrong place?
|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?||
1. Post your YouTube video.
2. Then, answer the following questions:
(1) Explain why you think America won the Revolutionary War. Use ideas from our class discussion, Liberty's Kids, and any other sources you've used to learn about this topic.
(2) After our tug-of-war simulation, (1) write about how each metaphor in the simulation represented something in history (e.g. America would get a prize if they won but England would not because America got their freedom when they won & England would not have gotten anything new), (2) write about how America won the war based on evidence from this experience.
(3) Upload a photo from the Daily Photo Journal from our tug-of-war simulation.
(1) Go to our daily photo journal and drag a copy of your Rube Goldberg drawing and graphic organizer to your desktop.
(2) Create a blog entry with the title above.
(3) Drag a Column into your blog entry & make it 2-columns wide.
(4) Drag your images into the blog entry with the drawing on the left and the graphic organizer on the right.
(5) Drag the column width so that the image and the graphic organizer are the same height (see below).
(6) Click on the "Lightbox" on each image so people can see it bigger.
(7) Follow the directions in the captions for each picture. (The left one tells you to write something, while the right one you can just copy and paste if it is true for you).
(8) Write a reflection at the bottom of the page answering the questions listed below.
1. What was the most surprising thing you learned about energy during this entire unit?
2. Why is energy important?
3. Where is energy found?
4. How would you define energy?
(If you have time, go check out the other Rube Goldberg inventions in the hallway. Compare and contrast them to yours. What do you like better? What ideas can you take from theirs?)
1. Grab a picture from our Daily Photo Journal of your person and upload it onto this blog entry.
2. Write a caption for your photo & click the "Lightbox" so people can see the larger version.
3. Summarize your experience at the Historical Reenactment by writing about what you learned, the connections you made to your experience in 1775 Boston, and what you liked or disliked. Try to show me how valuable of an experience this was. If you write "in character" (as an apprentice visiting Illinois) it will possibly be more fun!
Stay in character - you are you, but you are an apprentice in 1775, Boston. You have traveled out to Illinois to meet these people and learn more about what life was like in this part of the world.
Write about meeting your character (the one listed above) for the first time. What are they like? What was he or she doing? What did you learn from them? Create a story about your first experience with them. You'll be spending more time with them tomorrow on our field trip!
Comparing Light Bulbs with Differences in Wattage
I found it amazing that a 25-watt incandescent bulb will last 2500 hours! That seems like a very long time! Especially, when I compare it to a 100-watt incandescent bulb that lasts 750 hours.
I was surprised to discover that a 100-watt incandescent bulb gives off about 7 times more light than a 25 watt incandescent bulb! It only seemed like four or five times more.
Comparing Different Types of Light Bulbs with Similar Wattage
Comparing Different Light Bulbs with Different Lumens
(1) What has been easy?
(2) What has been hard?
(3) What has been fun?
(4) What has been boring?
(5) What job do you have? How do you do your job? What advice can you give others about your job?
(6) What job would you like next? Why?
1. Include your Data Chart as a PDF (Document).
2. Put a screen shot of your graph as an Image.
3. Answer the following questions:
1. What was your maximum temperature (use your Data Chart, not the picture)?
2. What was your minimum temperature (use your Data Chart, not the picture)?
3. What is your range? If you had any penalties or gifts, include those in your total.
4. What materials did you use in your insulated bottle (type them in order from your first layer, second layer, and third layer.)?
5. Why did you choose the materials that you did?
6. What are some materials that you didn't choose?
7. Why didn't you choose them?
8. Explain any blips on your graph (if you have them). Why did it do that?
9. Is an insulator a good or a poor conductor of heat energy?
