Dr. Don will be visiting schools in LA on Feb 9. While he is away, he'd like you to explore an interactive science website (Molecular Workbench) and complete some of the activities there. You can access the activities from either the Chromebooks or the ThinkPads so everyone can have a computer and work independently. Feel free to help each other but make sure all the responses you enter are your own. There are two tasks for Tuesday:
You may choose to work on either two 25 minute activities or one 45 minute one (there are six in all).
25 min activities:
- States of Matter
- Boiling Point
- How do cells make proteins?
- Gas Laws and Weather Balloons
TASK 2: Explore interactivities (hour 2)
When you are finished with the activities, explore the "Interactivities" section of the website. The interactivities simulate various molecular process in biology, chemistry, and physics. Explore as many as you have time for. For each one you play with, write down at least one thing you learned from the simulation. Turn in your list at the end of the period. The more you explore, the more credit you will get.
To begin, click on the picture above to go to the Molecular Workbench website and then on the "Try Activities" button. Have fun!
