Physical Science SGI Group Lesson #2 (9-9-2019)


Introduction to Science



Link->Mr. Tylers – Physical Science Unit 1


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

Students will plan and carry out investigations which utilize models  in order to explain the interactions between non-living objects with 85% accuracy in 3 of 4 trials.



Students will be able explain the following by the end of the  lesson today:

  • Branches of science.
  • Difference between scientific laws and scientific theories.
  • Lab Safety
  • Setting up an experiment


Life Connection:

Students can use this information when solving problems in their lives.


Behavioral Norms:

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


Conduct, Science, Technology, Law, Theory, Critical Thinking, Scientific Method, Observation, Bias, Variables (Independent & Dependent), Hypothesis.

Task #3

To the Unit Work !!!

Unit 1 – Activity 1 Pgs. 1-3

Chapter 1 – Figure #3


Task #4

Unit 1 – Activity #2 – Pgs. 4-7

Figure #2


Task #5

Unit 1 – Activity 3 – Pgs. 8-11

Resource Link – > Lab Safety 



Task #6

Unit 1 – Activity 4 – Pgs. 12-13

Resource Link – Mythbusters Tackles Walking on Water 

Start thinking of an experiment you want to conduct and pencil sketch it out. We will be using Google Slides to turn in a scientific method project with this unit.


Task #7

Unit 1 – Activity 5 – Pgs. 14-17

Recommended Video -> Different Types of Variables 


Task #8

Unit 1 – Activity 6 – Pgs. 18-19

In this task we will be practicing the difference between theory and law.


Ticket Out the Door:

At the end of today’s lesson I will be passing out Post-It notes. On the Post-It note you receive write down the most interesting thing you learned today  and the most confusing thing you heard and put it on the inside of the classroom door as you leave today.



  1. Review your vocabulary notes and Cornell Notes for a quiz next time.
  2. Complete all of the work for Unit 1 in the packet. If you get stuck message me.
  3. Create a google slideshow. Title it “PhySciA – Unit 1 – Experiment”. Create a title slide. Then create one slide for each step of the scientific method. You are free to conduct whatever experiment you want, within reason. Remember your ethics and morals. No damage to people, property, or animals.
