EQ: What is the relationship between motion and potential & kinetic energy?

Bounce the Ball lab

Fill out data table. Cut lab into half sheets and paste on pages 45 & 46

Stand up-Hand up- Pair up

Draw a picture of a ball bouncing with PE and KE labeled.
Wednesday, Nov 20
Essential Question: In the Bounce the Ball Lab, where was the greatest Potential energy and why?


Watch the demo and discuss the differences between PE and KE.

Label PE and KE on a roller coaster graphic. Turn in.

Each of you will receive one question. Partner A reads their question to Partner B, Partner B answers. Partner B does the same then cards are traded and you find another partner.
3. Examine the image provided. The dogs are pulling the sled across the snow. Which of the following statements best describes the forces in this situation? Draw an arrow on the image showing the direction of the motion.
a) The forces are balanced and the net force is zero.

b) The forces are balanced and the dogs’ force is greater.

c) The forces are unbalanced and the sled’s force is greater.

EQ: In the lab when you dropped the ball where was the greatest kinetic energy and why?

Energy transformation video- On page 47 write 15 facts given in the video.

complete energy transformation sheet, fold and glue onto page 48.

Mrs. Chen rocks!!

Modern energy exploration
Pay close attention
Answer questions on the video sheet
Tape on page 43 of notebook
echanical energy: energy stored in objects by tension.

adiant energy: electromagnetic energy. Visible light, x-rays, gamma rays, radio waves.

ound: produced when a force causes an object or substance to vibrate
hemical: energy stored in bonds of atoms and molecules. Batteries, petroleum, natural gas and coal are examples. Converted to thermal energy when we burn wood.

eat(thermal): vibration and movement of atoms within substances.

lectrical: delivered by electrons. Can move through a wire.

uclear: energy stored in the nucleus of an atom.

Explore: Think-Pair-Share

1 Do you think the super continent of Pangaea could have existed?

2 In 1596, Dutch map maker Abraham Ortelius noted he believed the continents were once connected. Why do you think a cartographer would come to this conclusion?

3 What additional evidence do you think helps prove the continents were once connected?

4 If the continents were once connected as the continent of Pangaea, what must have occurred between then and now to create the continents that exist today?

Explain: Video on Pangaea -

Demonstrate: Glue Gondwanaland into INB's then write and answer the following questions:

What clues did you use to help reunite Gondwanaland?

Why do you think Wegener believed the fossils were evidence that supported his Theory of Continental Drift?
