DECISION 3: What is the Performance/Product or Project that is the culminating activity of
this unit?

Higher order analytical and synthesis labs.

Student Assignments for the Culminating Activity:

Water and Sand Temperatures
PACT Questions
Answer critical thinking questions
Why is the Sky Blue?
Air Volume and Pressure?

Essential Question of the Culminating Activity:

What are the properties of and the processes that take place in the Earth’s atmosphere?

Paragraph Description of the Culminating Activity:

The culminating activities require higher order thinking skills necessary to perform the labs without
notes, books or other resources. All work is completed using their thought processes and everything
they learned from knowledge and comprehension tasks prior to reaching this level.
Steps or Task Analysis of the Culminating Activity:
See following page.

Water and Sand Temperatures

Problem If you ever have strolled barefoot on a beach on a very sunny day, you know that sand can be
very hot. But the ocean water is always much cooler than the sand. If sand and water both absorb energy
from the Sun, why do they feel so different?

Form a Hypothesis Sand and water do not change temperature at the same rate when absorbing heat
energy.

Materials

sand, tap water, salt water, beakers (3), light source, thermometers (3)

Procedure

1. Obtain three beakers.

Measure 100 g each of tap water, and place it in a beaker.

Measure 100 g each of salt water, and place it in a separate beaker.

Measure 100 g each of sand, and place it in a separate beaker.
2. Place the beakers beneath the light source so that all three beakers receive the same amount of light.

3. Measure the temperature in each beaker before turning on the light source.
Record the temperature in a copy of the table below.
4. Turn on the light source.

5. Record a temperature from each beaker once every minute for 15 min.

6. Record your data in a copy of the table below. You will need to add more rows!
                                              Temperature of Material (°C)

Time (min)                     Tap Water                     Sand                   Salt Water

Analyze and Conclude

   1. Graph the temperature changes for each material on the same graph.(ask me for graph paper if you
      don't have any)

   2. Compare and contrast What differences occurred in temperature changes among the tap water,
      the sand, and the salt water? Which material had the highest temperature? Which had the least
      temperature change?

   3. Describe what is happening to the air over the different materials. In which direction would the air
      move?

   4. Think Critically Review your lab setup. Besides moving the light bulb farther from the sand, what
      could you have done to keep the sand from heating up? How would your results be different if you
      had shined the light through a jar that contained milk before it reached the materials?

   5. Explain why the ocean is cooler than the sand.

Why is the Sky Blue?

You may have asked this question when you were younger. You might have received an answer that didn't
make sense to you at the time. Soon, you will be able to answer the question and demonstrate it at home.

Procedure

   1. Pour water into a jar until it is two-thirds full.
   2. Measure the amount of milk assigned by your teacher and add it to the jar.
   3. Record the color of the liquid.
   4. Hold a flashlight above the jar so the light shines down into it. Look into the glass from the side.
      Record the color the liquid appears to be.
   5. Shine the flashlight from one side of the jar and look in at the top. Record the color the liquid
      appears to be.
   6. Compare the colors you recorded with those of other lab groups.

Analysis

   1. Compare and contrast the colors you recorded with the colors of students who used less and more
      milk than you did. Did everyone see the same colors?

   2. Explain Did the liquid actually change color? Why did it appear to be different colors?

Air Volume and Pressure

You can't always see the air in Earth's atmosphere, but air is real. Like any other form of matter, air has
definite physical properties. As you work through this activity, you will observe two of the properties of air—
volume and pressure.
Strategy

You will demonstrate that air has volume (occupies space).
You will demonstrate that air exerts pressure.

                                                    Materials

water, beaker (500-ml), bicycle pump, air mattress, meterstick

Procedure

     1. Put 250 ml of water in the beaker.
     2. Insert the hose of the bicycle pump so it is below the surface of the water.
     3. To demonstrate that air occupies space, pump air into the water. Record your observations. Remove
        the pump hose.
     4. To demonstrate that air exerts pressure, place the air mattress on the floor. Press the mattress flat to
        be sure it contains very little air. Feel the floor through the mattress.
     5. Measure in centimeters the length, width, and thickness of the air mattress. Record your
        measurements in Table 1.
     6. Inflate the mattress using the bicycle pump. Measure and record the dimensions of the mattress
        again.
     7. Push down with your hand on one area of the inflated air mattress. Note how the dimensions of the
        area you are pushing on change. How does the part of the mattress surrounding your hands change?

Data and Observations
                                                  Observations:

     1. Air pumped into beaker:

     2. Pushing down on mattress:

     Air mattress           Before pumping        After pumping

1. Length (cm)

2. Width (cm)

3. Thickness (cm)
Questions and Conclusions
1.     What happened in the beaker of water when you pumped air into it?
2.     What property of air does this demonstrate?
3.     Calculate the volume of air in the air mattress. Show your work below. If you need more room, use
   the back of this page.
4.     What happened to the thickness of the air mattress in the area where you pushed on it?
5.     What happened to the area of the air mattress surrounding the area you pushed? What property of air
   does this show?
6.     Does air exert pressure? Defend your answer.
