Study Hall: Work on homework, read a book, grab a magazine from the computer table, do something silently. There is no talking. No exceptions.
Warm-Up No talking. No questions. Take out a sheet of paper Explain how you do an experiment? What are the steps you would need to take? Explain as best you can.
Housekeeping / Announcements Did anyone remember…. Parent Survey Signed Syllabus CMS Forms Anyone absent on Friday when we took our Rules and Procedures Quiz? Raise your hand
Class Supplies: DUE TODAY Classroom Supplies : 4 Composition notebooks (1 for each quarter) No. 2 pencils Individual pencil sharpener A pair of scissors Colored pencils Glue sticks
Interactive Notebook What is an interactive science notebook? Any ideas…..? Video link Still searching for an appropriate video
Interactive Notebook Today we are starting our interactive notebook set – up Please pay close attention Your notebook will be graded each Friday for the following: Organization Information Neatness
Interactive Notebook Passer I will designate a student to help distribute notebooks at the start of each block This notebook passer job will change periodically. See Classroom Job chart on wall We will see who has their notebook today…
Interactive Notebook Your Full Name Block __#___ Ms. Maas Science This is the front view of your notebook Please make sure your notebook has the following information on the cover :
Interactive Notebook On the Inside Cover: Interactive Notebook rubric This will be given out tomorrow for you to glue inside the front cover (left side) On the right side will be your Table of Contents
Interactive Notebooks Now write “TABLE OF CONTENTS” on the top of the first page in your notebook (this is on the right side).
Interactive Notebook it should look like this This inside cover will remain blank today Table of Contents of Contents
Interactive Notebooks Turn the Table of Contents page over and count four more pages. After counting, now write 1 on the upper LEFT side of your notebook, outside the margin1
Interactive Notebooks On this same page with “1” on it, you will write “Scientific Process” and write the date: 9/3/13 11 Scientific Process 9/3/2013 (left side) ( (right side)
Interactive Notebooks Now, go back to the table of contents and write on the FIRST line: 1. Scientific Process
Interactive Notebook it should look like this This side will be blank today Table of Contents of Contents S1. Scientific Process
Quick Overview of Notebooks Very Important: Teacher notes will be on the LEFT side of the notebook. Teacher Notes = Lecture notes; this is the information I tell you to copy into your notebook Maybe it will take you three pages to write your notes but DO NOT add numbers at the top of pages until I tell you to.
Quick Overview of Notebooks Very Important: Student work will be on the RIGHT side of the notebook = station work, student input The next entry we do, will be TOMORROW when we do our stations. Each station will start a new page number AND will be added to the table of contents.
Interactive Notebooks We write EVERYTHING I tell you in our notebooks. These notes are what will help you complete the activities on Wednesday and Thursday. If you finish early, then you sit silently. DO NOT draw on your notebooks. Remember, I grade them every FRIDAY and I will pass out a grading rubric tomorrow.

Students you will write this on page 1 under the heading ‘Scientific Process’ Scientific Method Steps and Definitions: – Purpose: State the problem – Research: find out about the topic – Hypothesis: predict the outcome to the problem.
Continue writing notes on the left side – Experiment: develop a procedure to test the hypothesis – Analysis: record the results of the experiment – Conclusion: compare the hypothesis to the experiment’s conclusion.
Continue writing notes on the left side : Paper Airplanes Write “Paper Airplanes Experiment” and underline it. The next slide has a lot of information….. You will only be taking notes today, so write all notes thoroughly and completely to help you complete our activities on Wednesday and Thursday
Purpose: How can I make this airplane fly farther. Research: I know that paper airplanes fly better when: they have wing flaps; I use tape; and they have some kind of “nose.” Hypothesis: I think that airplanes with pointed noses will fly farther than ones with square noses Experiment: 1)Make 2 paper airplanes that are mostly the same. 2)Make one nose square. 3)Throw each plane 10 times. 4)Measure the distance they go. 5)Make a graph. Analysis: My graph shows that the plane with the square nose went farther than the pointed nose one… Conclusion: My hypothesis was wrong. I thought that the pointed-nose airplane would go farther, but actually, the square-nose one went farther.
