Physical Science B SGI Lesson #2 (1-9-2019)


Introduction to Physical Science B!



Unit S.M.A.R.T. Goal:

Students will attain an 80% passage rate in 3 of 4 trials


How Physics relates to the world around us.

Life Connection:

Students will answer this question before leaving class today.

Behavioral Norms:

  • Learn from mistakes
  • Tolerance
  • Participate
  • Personal electronics only when appropriate

Key Concepts:

Patterns, Cause and Effect, System and System Models

Course Digital Resources:

Link -> Mr. Tyler’s Physical Science Digital Resources

Warm Up:

When you come in today you will see the word “Physics” written on the board”. Written vertically! The goal in this warm up is to write a  science related word for each letter in Physics. The winner is the person who uses the most letters.


Example: Students doing the same thing, but with the word “Winter” instead.

Student#1 (used 37 letters) Winner!








Student #2 (used 35 letters)








OUR Warm Up Winner!!
