# AGENDAS FOR THE WEEK:

October 6th October 10th This week is more like a huge exploration part of a bigger lab (6-10
days), I have divided each day as best as I could into the 5 Es still.

MONDAY
Objective(s): SWBAT
*Practice using microscopes
*Practice identifying parts of the
microscope
*View a specimen under the
microscope

NGSSS:
SC.8.E.5.10-Assess how
technology is essential to
science for such purposes as
remote locations, sample
collection, measurement, data
collection and storage,
computation, and
communication of
information.

Engage
(5 minutes)
How do you think scientist
are able to see tiny hairs on a
bees leg?

TUESDAY
Objective(s): SWBAT
their daphnia lab
*identify the question of the
experiment
*identify the variables of the
experiment
NGSSS:
SC.7.N.1.3- Distinguish between
an experiment (which must involve
the identification and control of
variables) and other forms of
scientific investigation and explain
that not all scientific knowledge is
derived from experimentation.
SC.7.N.1.4- Identify test variables
and outcome variables in an
experiment

Engage

(5 minutes)

## I started drinking coffee when I

started college, because I AM NOT
a morning person. I also decide to
stay up late and watch Once Upon
a Time or anything on Netflix
sometimes, so coffee helps wake
me up in the morning.
Who drinks coffee in the
morning?
What happens when you drink too
much coffee?
What is the substance in coffee
that causes that reaction in your
body? Can it be found in other
drinks?

WEDNESDAY
Objective(s): SWBAT
*Observe the Daphnia
structures
*Observe the effect of the
caffeine in the heart rate
NGSSS:
SC.7.N.1.1- Plan and carry out
scientific investigation,
identify variables, make
predictions and observations
SC.8.E.5.10Supporting Benchmarks:
MAFS.4.MD.1.1-Know
relative sizes of measurement
units within one system of
units including km, m, cm; kg,
g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec.
Within a single system of
measurement, express
measurements in a larger unit
in terms of a smaller unit.

Engage
(5 minutes)
Explain that today they will be
conducting the actual
experiment.
Ask: How can we measure the
heart rate of the Daphnia?
Instead of counting them for a
whole minute is there an easier
faster way to count the number
of heart beats per minute?

THURSDAY
Objective(s): SWBAT
*Observe the effect of the
caffeine in the heart rate
*Compare the heart rate of the
Daphnia with the first
concentration and the Daphnia
with a higher concentration

NGSSS:
SC.7.N.1.1- Plan and carry out
scientific investigation,
identify variables, make
predictions and observations

FRIDAY
Objective(s): SWBAT
* Observe the effect of the
caffeine on the heart rate of the
Daphnia
*Compare the heart rate of the
Daphnia with the first
concentration and the Daphnia
with a higher concentration

## *Briefly compare their

hypothesis before the
investigation to their results

Engage
(5-10 minutes)
Is there anything you would
like to discuss with the class
about what we have learned so
far? Any questions?

Engage
(5 minutes)
What does a lethal dose of any
substance mean?
Do you think that caffeine has
a lethal dose?

The students will be working
with dissecting microscopes
and identifying the parts of
one.
Each table will have one in
front of them. The students
will be asked to point out their
parts to the teacher as she
walks around using the
diagram on the power point.
Once she has gone through a
group they will be given a
specimen (it will be a
paperclip) and they will have a
small opportunity to focus the
microscope and use it.
A VIP will be used to have
them figure the parts out. Then
it will be used to have them
prepare a wet mount as well.
They watch as the teacher
demonstrates how to prepare a
wet mount first, then they will
be given a pipet with water, a
cover slip, and a slide to create
their own wet mount. Teacher
will walk around and explain
how to do it if any students are
having trouble.
Explain
(10 minutes)
The teacher will be explaining
throughout the exploration so
that the students can learn how
to prepare the wet mount and
use the microscopes. She will

The teacher will have them
think back to their Penny lab
think of what was purpose of
the experiment. This will help
revive their memory on what
independent and dependent
variables are.
She will then ask them to think
of their Daphnia experiment.
Ask what do you think the
purpose of this lab is? They

The teacher will then ask them
to try and identify the

## Also here the teacher will explain

that each group will be given a
type of coffee (example: expresso,
house blend, decaf). Within their
respective type, they will be given
different concentrations of their
coffee each day to take their
measurements.

## Students will be given first and

lowest concentration of their
respective type of coffee
The students will spend all day
taking measurements of their
Daphnia and using a packet
that Mrs.Wisby and Mrs.Webb
are in the process of making to
record their data. A table
should be in there. I can
include what it will most likely
look like.
On this first day they will
complete the measurements for
the control and at least partly
complete the measurements for
the first concentration. The
spring water drops.

No explain yet. However, as

discuss with each group what
their results look like and what
they believe is the effect of the
caffeine concentration on the
