2nd Lab Week
1st quiz on the Solar System
|Solar System Quiz|
Concept: Water Vapor & Heating Earth
Objective: Students will learn when liquid water evaporates, it turns into water vapor. Students will learn uneven heating of the Earth causes air movements.
NO LAB HOMEWORK.
Cornell Note Questions:
•What is water vapor?
•What is evaporation and condensation?
•What are clouds and fog?
•What is dew?
•What is frost?
•How does wind happen?
Questions of the Week:

3. Water on Earth moves between the oceans and land through the processes of evaporation and condensation. As a basis for understanding this concept:
3b. Students know when liquid water evaporates, it turns into water vapor in the air and can reappear as a liquid when cooled or as a solid if cooled below the freezing point of water.
4. Energy from the Sun heats Earth unevenly, causing air movements that result in changing weather patterns. As a basis for understanding this concept:
4a. Students know uneven heating of Earth causes air movements (convection currents).
6. Scientific progress is made by asking meaningful questions and conducting careful investigations. As a basis for understanding this concept and addressing the content in the other three strands, students should develop their own questions and perform investigations. Students will:
6b. Develop a testable question.
6c. Plan and conduct a simple investigation based on a student-developed question and write instructions others can follow to carry out the procedure.
6f. Select appropriate tools (e.g., thermometers, meter sticks, balances, and graduated cylinders) and make quantitative observations.
