Before submitting: Please double check your Edited Rough Draft.
Type your good copy of your persuasive essay.
Use google.docs or a word document and share or send it to your teacher when you are finished.
**Remember these programs give you hints, so if something turns a different color (red usually means misspelled—green means there’s a grammar mistake), use the clues to help you.
HOWEVER, don’t be fooled by your computer—if you spell something correctly, but it’s a homophone, your program will not recognize it is wrong so DO NOT turn in your essay until YOU have read and reread it carefully. Get into the habit now as you will be doing more and more like this as you move forward in school.
Science: Goal test and evaluate an example of potential and kinetic energy (45 mins)
Science STEAM — Explore! Make a Jumping Frog
Materials: Ruler, scissors, Origami paper
Use the Origami paper I sent to you. They are 6 in x 6 in squares. (Using yellow or green paper, it will look lifelike.)
- View the video link below to create an Origami frog.
- Remember to crease a SHARP line when indicated for the origami to work properly.
- You can press with a flat ruler or run your fingernail over the creasebut be careful not to cut or rip the paper or you will need to start all over from the beginning.
Push down on your frog to make it hop. What happens if you push down gently?
What happens if you push down with more force? What happens if you push down on just the very edge? Measure how far you can get your frog to jump.
In your copybook, answer the questions below:
What is the farthest distance your frog jumped out of 5 tries?
Where does the energy to move your frog come from?
When does your frog have potential energy?
When does your frog have kinetic energy?
What is the difference between kinetic and potential energy?
Submit your answers to your teacher when finished.
Thank you for working so hard today. Enjoy the rest of your day and see you on Monday!
