We are surrounded by information (data) and it’s important to organize it into presentable and easy to understand ways!
For this week’s Weekly Challenge, you are going to display some information. You can choose the topic and the way you represent it. You must also include 5 questions that can be answered from your information.
If you need some inspiration, you can watch The Great Graph Contest.
This week’s Weekly Challenge has you sharing a 60 second (or less) book commercial on Flip Grid for a book you’ve read or one that you’re currently reading. Then, you can create a tweet from a character in your book using the Google Slides template linked below.
Step 1: Decide on a book you’ve read or have read in the past and create a 60 second (or less) commercial for it. Record your commercial on Flip Grid using the link below. All videos will be reviewed before they are made public. If you DO NOT want your video posted on Flip Grid for others to see, please say, “No post” at the end of your video.
Step 2: Create a tweet from a character in your book using the template linked below. Share the Google Slides template so that anyone within Westside Community Schools can view. Copy the link and include it in your Flip Grid submission. Here is a guide for you to use to help with your tweet creation
For this week’s weekly challenge, you’ll need a few materials. Feel free to experiment with other materials you have at home as well.
8 identical water glasses
a set of measuring cups
food coloring (optional)
1 plastic spoon
1 sheet of paper
Use a measuring cup to fill each of the glasses with the correct amount of water. Use the image below as a guide.
For fun, you can add a drop of food coloring to your glasses or two drops to make green, orange, or purple.
Label your glasses. Use the image below as a guide.
With a plastic spoon, gently tap each glass and listen for the sound it makes.
Notice which glass makes a lower sound and a higher sound.
Try playing these simple songs or create your own.
For your submission, you can make a video of yourself playing a song with your glasses or you can create a Pic Collage with pictures of your process. You may also choose another creative way to display your learning. Submit your work using the link below.
The science of sound is all about vibrations. When you hit the glass with the spoon, it vibrates and it’s these vibrations that ultimately make the sound. You probably noticed that tapping an empty glass produced a higher-pitched sound than tapping a glass full of water. Adding water to the glass dampens the vibrations created by striking the glass with a spoon. The less water in the glass, the faster the glass vibrates and the higher the pitch. The more water you add to the glass, the slower the glass vibrates, creating a lower pitch.
