Science Final Task: POPPLETS ABOUT FORCES

Once we have finished the unit about forces it's time to review with your mind maps created with POPPLET:


But this time it's going to be a bit more difficult than other times. As you know along this unit we have done some experiments and we have found forces in our daily life, and we have done the same with simple and complex machines. 

So in this final task of Science you HAVE TO take your own photos, to use in the POPPLET. Instead of using photos from different websites. 

To sum up, you will do the POPPLETS as we used to do at the end of the Science unit but this time you will look the examples of forces and machines in your real life.



A FAMOUS PERSON


FAMOUS IN THE PAST




  1. Create a presentation with five slides:
  2. First slide: TITLE (Your costume´s photo)
  3. Second slide: Write nine sentences about you.
    • Use Grammar ticket A.B. page 26. Have to / don´t have to.
    • Use the key words C.B. page 24.
      • Clean the floor.
      • Do the shopping.
      • Do the washing-up.
      • Make (your) bed.
      • Take the rubbish out.
      • Tidy up
      • Go to the market.
      • Look after the animals.
      • Look after young brothers and sisters.
  4. Choose a famous to this presentation and you have to dress-up like his or her.
  5. Make pairs and you have to imagine that you were a journalist years ago. You are going to make questions sentences to interview your partner.
    • Use Grammar Ticket A.B. page 28. Past simple questions.
    • Yes / No.
    • Wh-questions: What, where, who, when, why and How.
  6. Rec the interview and upload to youtube. (SCRIPT)
  7. Use the answers to write a composition about your famous partner.
    • Use Grammar Ticket A.B. page 24. Past simple and list of irregular verbs on page 92.
    • There will be seven sentences or more in the composition.

And your evaluation will be with this rubric:

INSIDE A MACHINE.

During the last session we studied how we can uses forces in simple machines and how our lifes are easier with them. Now if we combine those simple machines we can have complex machines as a bicycle, a car engine or a computer.




IN A COMPLEX MACHINE WE HAVE TWO PARTS:
















LET'S HAVE A LOOK TO THIS VIDEO AND YOU WILL KNOW HOW A CAR ENGINE WORKS:



ONE OF THE MACHINES WHICH WE USE MORE IS THE COMPUTER, it is also made from diferent operating parts, have a look to this website to know a bit more. 



With this funny game and helping the robot you will need to use are the knowlegde you've acquiered along this unit. So you have to think a bit and I hope you have fun.

USING FORCES: MACHINES.

Let's move into a new Science topic.

We learnt that the FORCES are action wich make objects move, stop or change shape.

Today we are going to learn how to use this forces, We can use the forces when we use the machines.  Machines can be:

  • SIMPLE: they have a few components.
  • COMPLEX: they have many components. 
Let's have a look to this video about SIMPLE MACHINE:



As you could watch in the video MACHINES make our lifes easier. 
Can you identify what are the six simple machines?
  • Lever.
  • Pulley.
  • Wheel and Axel.
  • Inclined Plane.
  • Screw.
  • Wedge.
NOW IT'S YOUR TURN!!!!! Could you identify examples of the six simple machines in your real life? It is easier than you think. JUST LOOK AROUND,, there are a lot. 


CHECK YOUR LEARNING ABOUT SIMPLE MACHINES WITH THIS TWO ACTIVITIES.

FORCES AND MOTION


Let's review what a force is and how it affects to the objets with this song:



FORCES CAN DISTORT OBJECTS TEMPORARILY OR PERTMANENTLY. 


ALSO THE FORCES CAN AFFECT THE MOVEMENT OF THINGS IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS:

Let's look for an example from your real life in which you think this different situation happen.
  1. A forces makes something move.
  2. A force stops a moving body.
  3. A force changethe direction of a moving object.
  4. A force increas the speed of a moving object.
  5. A force reduce the speed of a moving object. 
WITH THIS SIMPLE GAME YOU CAN CHECK HOW DIFFERENT FORCES CAN AFFECT THE MOVEMENT OF THINGS. (Please read the instructions very carefully)

LET'S EXPERIMENT WITH FORCES

Today we are going to start a new topic in our Science lesson: FORCES. 






Why the ball is moving in every case?
What are the people doing to move the ball?



And now, What is going to happen with the ball?
How is it going to move?


With all this previous information, Can you say what a force is?

LET'S MAKE SOME EXPERIMENTS TO IDENTIFY DIFFERENT KIND OF FORCES.

1. Let's take an elastic band, and tie something like a key in one part. Hold the elastic band from the opposite part. Try to identify what happens on it and why it happens.

2. Take a plastic pen, and some small pieces of paper. Rub very quickly the pen with something made of wool. Then you will move the pen closer to the papers. Try to identify what happens on it and why it happens. 

3. Let's take two magnets and try to put them together. Try to identify what happens on them and why it happens. 

4. Let's play with a car. Launch the car along the floor of a classroom, First do it very soft and then do it stronger. What has happened? When has it stopped later?


LET'S CHECK YOUR LEARNING 
ABOUT THE KIND OF FORCES:


IF YOU HAVE MORE TIME HERE YOU CAN INCREASE YOUR KNOWLEDGE.

Distance Calculation

Continuing with our Comenius project activities we are going to calculate the distances among all the school participants in the project.



We are going to do with Google maps and then we are going to capture a photo with an app which is called JING.

We are going to divided the class into five group. Each group will choose one of our Comenius Partners. You can find it into the website project:


Then have a look to this video tutorial to know what you have to do and how you should do it.



In the photo, it has to appear:
  • Names of both schools.
  • An arrow that match both school.
  • A box with the km.

When you will have finish everything, please send an e-mail with the photo attached in it to the Comenius e-mail: sangregorio.comenius@gmail.com. Write on the Issue: The name of the school you work on and the name of your class. And as a text of the e-mail write the names of the members of your group.


Here you have the link to download and install JING.
