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:
- Execute the intended goal.
- Have an attractive design/presentation.
- Include at least one working electric motor.
- Have at least one additional input/output such as a microphone, speaker and/or LED light.
- One small electric motor
- Two alligator clips attached to coated copper wires
- One D-Cell battery
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.
