Quiz Review  –

  1. Draw each type of bridge. Label it and list one characteristic of it.
  2. Define tension and give 2 examples of how you use tension in your daily life.
  3. Define compressions and give 2 examples of how you use compression in your daily life.
  4. Explain why you decided to build your bridge the way you did. If you could change one thing what would it be?

Feats and Failures

Answer the following questions in your science journal. Use complete sentences.

  1. What is engineering?
  2. Why was the Sydney Opera House considered an impossible build?
  3. Why was the Tacoma Narrows Bridge a failure?

Forces and Structures –

  • Draw each type of bridge. Label it and list one characteristic of it.
  • Define tension and give 2 examples of how you use tension in your daily life.
  • Define compression and give 2 examples of how you use compression in your daily life.
  • Explain why you decided to build your bridge the way you did. If you could change one thing what would it be?

MATTER –

What to study for upcoming science quiz.

  1. The differences between a solid, liquid and gas.
  2. The water stages cycle. What do each of the stages mean? For example, what is deposition.
  3. What is matter? What is it’s smallest form?
  4. What is the difference between a physical change and a chemical change? Be prepared to list examples of each.

 

A few of our ice insulation devices. It was fun to watch everyone work together to build these. As of Friday morning, there are two devices that still have ice in them.

Matter and Materials –

Build an Ice Device:

Students will work with a small group to build a device that can keep their cup of ice frozen the longest.

Students can bring materials from home to help build their device at school. Ideas for materials include:

  • styrofoam
  • aluminium foil
  • cloth
  • sponges
  • tape
  • other materials that will help or inhibit heat loss that are easily accessible.

Students will be given 2 – 3 periods at school to build their devices.

Energy unit –

Science quiz review – all of the following answers can be found in our science journals.

Study the 5 energy facts we wrote in our journal.

For the forms of energy there will be a matching activity. So read over those a couple times.

Look over the ping pong experiment. What types of energy did we talk about in that experiment. How did the ball have both of those types of energy?

List 3 types of renewable energy and 3 types of non renewable.

Grade 5’s are keeping ice cold!

Today students brainstormed and researched how to build a device around a plastic cup to keep their ice cold. I will be providing the cups and ice. Students can bring in materials from home to build their device but it will be built completely at school. We are planning today and will be building on Thursday. We will test these devices on the Tuesday after Easter break.

February 1st – Bill Nye Structures link for Grade 5

 

 

My Grade 5 students have just begun a google slide project as well. I felt like they needed more direction so today I shared with each of them a google slide outlining what I am expecting them to include in their presentation. Some students already had a head start and had gotten some slides done, I encourage them to keep what they have even if it doesn’t follow my guided slide. Way to show initiative!

These google slides will be presented to the whole class on November 2nd.
