Interactive Notebooks facilitate both teaching and learning through … -- Physics Processing Information Students use the left margin and summaries to rethink each lesson. Habits of Mind You constantly model reasoning through reflection and questioning. Reference You can refer to any prior lesson when making connections, such as, transitioning to the next content standard. Organization You help students format notes, cues and summaries in a sensible, accessible manner. Assessment Students have access to all lessons in order to write summaries and to answer rigorous questions.
Make them your own. Sample INBs are available through Thursday. Stop by any time to get ideas.
Setting up an INB Lesson 1.Choose your content standard. 2.Break it into sensible, manageable, kid-friendly Learning Targets. 3.Brainstorm activities that will help kids understand each Learning Target. 4.Consider your timeline and choose the activities that best support that learning. 5.Set up a sample INB to help determine timing, spacing and materials needed. 6.Teach lesson, using Learning Target Summary as formative assessment.
Setting up an INB Lesson 1.6 th grade physics content standard: Relate forces qualitatively to the laws of motion and gravitation. 2.Learning Targets 1.I can define “force” and give three examples. 2.I can tell a story about motion and force. 3.I can tell a story about force, mass & acceleration. 4.I can define and describe inertia. 5.I can explain Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion.* 6.I can apply the laws of motion to the behavior of a pendulum. 3.Activities 1.Collisions brainstorm 2.Car & Block Collisions
3. Activities for the 5 th Learning Target I can explain Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion. -Collisions brainstorm -Car & Block Collisions -Usborne, page 29: Firing Cannons -Usborne 29: Swimming -Tiros Ed. Physics video, min. 1:00 – 3:00 -Eureka video, Action/Reaction, 4:30 min. -Textbook M: pages 55-57 -Paul Hewitt comic: Horse Sense -Discovery Physics Stations -Forces Workshops -Pendulum Inquiry -Newton Badge: The Dread Pirate Roberts
4. Activities for the 5 th Learning Target I can explain Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion. -Collisions brainstorm -Car & Block Collisions 1 st -Usborne, page 29: Firing Cannons -Usborne 29: Swimming 4 th -Tiros Ed.

INB page 5: Friday, 8.22.14 Today’s Agenda Action/Reaction Learning Target I can explain Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion. 1.Car & Block Collisions 2.Textbook Notes
INB page 6: Monday, 8.25.14 Today’s Agenda Action/Reaction Learning Target I can explain Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion. 3. Physics Video 4. Usborne: Swimming 4. Newton Badge: DPR 5. Begin Horse Sense
INB page 7: Tuesday, 8.26.14 Today’s Agenda Action/Reaction Learning Target I can explain Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion. 5. Finish Horse Sense 6. Formative Assessment: Summary
INB page 6: Video on Newton’s Laws Introduction to Physics Introduction to Physics 1.Predict what will happen to the apple when all the forces acting on it are removed. 1.Listen to the class discussion. 2.Add a reason – “This will happen because …” – or make a new prediction supported with reasoning. 3.Watch the video for the answer. 2.Use the ideas of inertia and action/reaction to explain how close your answer was to the correct answer- “When the force of gravity was removed, …” “When the force of friction was taken away, …” “When there was no longer air resistance, …” 1:00 – 2:53
INB page 6: Swimming 1.Read the Action and reaction story about swimming out loud with your table partner. 2.Help each other explain what swimming has to do with Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion. 3.Answer these questions out loud then in your INB 1.When swimming, what is the action force? What is the reaction force? 2.Does how hard you push or kick against the water affect anything? Newton Badge: You are the Dread Pirate Roberts designing a new ship. Explain how many cannons your new ship will have, where they will be placed and how they will be fired. Read the “Did You Know?” on pg. 29.
INB page 7: Newton’s 3 rd Law of Motion For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
INB page 7: Horse Sense 1.Read the comic. 2.Underline the physics vocabulary. 3.Number each frame. 4.Help your partner tell the story of the comic frame by frame. 5.Give the characters names. 6.Write the story frame by frame. 7.If you copy word for word, use quotation marks.
INB page 7: Horse Sense 1.Please hand your story to your table partner and listen while he or she reads it out loud to you. 2.Switch stories and read yours to your partner. 3.Fix any words that didn’t make sense. 4.How does this story reflect the 3 rd Law of Motion?
Table Talk Use yesterday’s notes to help each other finish each statement. 1.The string on Lilli’s bow is pulled back, the arrow is … 2.Alex’s foot pushes down on the floor, … 3.Alejandra’s paddle pushes the water back, … 4.Olivia pushes down on the trampoline, … 5.Logan’s pencil pushes down on his paper, … 6.Miguel’s hammer pushes down on the nail, … 7.Kody pushes the basketball down, … 8.Ethan pulls the stone in his slingshot back, … 9.The gases from Astronaut Sasha’s rocket push down on the earth, …
Sample Lesson 1.Reread today’s learning target. 2.Reflect on what you learned today. 3.Do your best to prove you understand the Learning Target by writing an answer. 4. Write a letter grade: A, B, C, D or F for yourself next to the target. (A+, A-, …) 5.Be honest. This grade is meant to help you know your strengths and weaknesses. 6.Be prepared to show how well you can do or understand today’s target.
