1500-1799 Era  Emergence of Historical Tribes
Rating
0.0 stars

The Protohistoric period recorded the stories of developing tribal cultures through oral traditions, written accounts, and cultural artifacts. Pawnee ancestors led the return. Some hunted, and left, others remained and contributed to Ponca, Omaha, and Oto tribes. The Oglala and Brule subgroups of the Teton Dakota were horse nomads. This period saw the first contacts between Europeans and Native Americans. Traders from the East Coast arrived, bringing horses and tools as well as whiskey and conflict.

8.1 Contact Forces
Unrestricted Use

Rating
0.0 stars

Oh, no! I’ve dropped my phone! Most of us have experienced the panic of watching our phones slip out of our hands and fall to the floor. We’ve experienced the relief of picking up an undamaged phone and the frustration of the shattered screen. This common experience anchors learning in the Contact Forces unit as students explore a variety of phenomena to figure out, “Why do things sometimes get damaged when they hit each other?”

Student questions about the factors that result in a shattered cell phone screen lead them to investigate what is really happening to any object during a collision. They make their thinking visible with free-body diagrams, mathematical models, and system models to explain the effects of relative forces, mass, speed, and energy in collisions. Students then use what they have learned about collisions to engineer something that will protect a fragile object from damage in a collision. They investigate which materials to use, gather design input from stakeholders to refine the criteria and constraints, develop micro and macro models of how their solution is working, and optimize their solution based on data from investigations. Finally, students apply what they have learned from the investigation and design to a related design problem.

Stephanie Howell posted this a few weeks ago and I thought, "What a great way to connect with students at the beginning of the year and then throughout the year!" Using her template, a Google add-on called Autocrat, and her video tutorial, you can set up a Google Form/Sheet to automatically send students a digital birthday card throughout the year. It takes about 20 minutes to set up but then it runs automatically throughout the year!
