Today: Student participated in a WRITE-PAIR-SHARE activity.
First. Students watched a short Mass vs. Weight cartoon. While they watched the video they filled out a graphic organizer by WRITING notes. Then they PAIRED with a partner and shared notes with each other. Finally we SHARED as a class and filled in any notes that were missed and are important.
Next, Mass and the Triple Beam Balance were introduced. First, I demonstrated how to use the balance. Then, Students were given 10 minutes at the end of the period to practice using the balance in the back lab.
Homework: Using the Balance Worksheet - due tomorrow
