Warm Up: (5 minutes)

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? (Yep, There IS an answer!)

No one figured it out on Tuesday. I am curious to see if anyone figured it out yet!



Task #1  – Last Lab

Make your own batteries lab! We will be following the directions in the lab guide to do this one. You will be choosing your own groups.


Task #2  – 

CH 9 Review material


Task #3 – 

Chapter 9 Exam – 20 questions


Task #4 – 

Time depending we will look at our last unit today. Start brainstorming about creating a device run by an electric motor. This is one of the performance tasks for Physical Science B Unit 10.

Your gadget should:

  1. Execute the intended goal.
  2. Have an attractive design/presentation.
  3. Include at least one working electric motor.
  4. Have at least one additional input/output such as a microphone, speaker and/or LED light.


  1. One small electric motor
  2. Two alligator clips attached to coated copper wires
  3. One D-Cell battery

Crafting Materials:

You may use what is available at the center and/or what you can find in your house.

Next Generation Science Standards:

HS PS  2-5 Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current.


HS PS 3-1 Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy  of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.


HS – PS 3-5 Develop and use a model of two objects interacting through electric or magnetic fields to illustrate the forces between objects and the changes in energy of the objects due to the interaction.
