Discuss the difference between conduction, convection and radiation of thermal energy, and complete activities with your class by investigating the difference between temperature, thermal energy and the heat capacity of different materials.
Sixth graders listen to descriptions of types of heat to gain background knowledge In this heat lesson plan, 6th graders perform experiments to understand various types of heat transfer (convection, conduction and radiation.) Students assess their knowledge of the different types of heat transfer.
Students explore heat transfer and how it affects weather.
Students observe how the change of temperature of liquids facilitates how the liquid changes its density, expansion, and how it rises. For this temperature lesson plan, students observe how this liquid changes, explain what they have learned, and create a power point presentation about heat energy.
Students participate in a variety of experiments designed to illustrate types of heat transfer including conduction, convection and radiation. They complete worksheets as an assessment of the experiments.
Students take a quiz of method of heat transfer. In this heat transfer lesson, students answer questions in which they tell if the situation describes conduction, convection or radiation. 
Somebody in the Nevada Joint Union High School District has a talent for focusing the important, organizational skills, and a creative eye for creating sharp science presentations! Here is one on heat transfer.  Conduction, convection, and radiation are explained at the level of high school physicists, but in such an orderly and cohesive manner that viewers feel no heat! By the end of the slide show, learners are able to explain the three types of transfer, calculate transfer rates, and relate radiation to temperature.
An earth science video starts with a basic explanation of convection currents and then how they occur in the molten rock of the mantle causing the lithosphere to travel with it.
Eighth graders complete activities to analyze the particle theory of matter and the difference between transmission of heat by conduction, convection, and radiation. In this heat transfer lesson, 8th graders describe how a technology associated with heat effects lives, provide examples of insulating technologies, analyze how needs fuel technology development, compare the transmission of heat by the three theories, and complete an investigative activity for the lesson.
In this heat worksheet, students read four paragraphs about heat, temperature, conduction, convection, and radiation. They answer two short answer questions.
Ninth graders are introduced to the concepts of density and convection/conduction through demonstrations, notes and activities. They are exposed to real-world examples to model the processes that move and shape Earth's surface. Pupils research plate tectonics and the location of various plate boundaries, using science textbooks and the internet.
Students examine fossil fuels, nuclear and renewable fuels. They study investigate types of heat transfer such as convection, conduction, and radiation. They complete crossword puzzles based on the vocabulary. They design, construct and test solar oven.
In this science worksheet, students complete the exercises that focus on the concept of heat and the use of a thermometer. The sheet also requires prior knowledge of using a telephone.
Step-by-step instructions are given for two hands-on activities. Young scientists cut out a paper spiral and hold it over a hot plate to demonstrate convection, and they place a small piece of wax on the end of a metal rod opposite the hot plate to demonstrate conduction. Three conclusion questions for each activity are included so that they can record their observations. This is a valuable visual for reinforcing these two concepts of heat transfer.
Students investigate the properties of heat. They explore methods of temperature control and measurement. Through experimentation and activities, students design a high tech tree house. They consider electrical, solar, and natural heat and wise use of resources.
Students role play molecules in a container as the container is heated to develop a definition of heat and temperature. They also observe demonstrations of conduction, convection, radiation, and phase transfer. Using these observations they complete an activity sheet.
In this heat transfer worksheet, students answer one true or false question about heat and three multiple choice questions about heat transfer including conduction, convection and radiation.
Middle school or high school physical science pupils will warm up to the topic of heat when viewing this set of slides. It covers heat transfer, measurement tools, phase changes, and more. Have demonstrations and examples of the tools prepared to accompany the presentation for the most effective learning experience. 
Students explore heat transfer.  In this temperature and molecule behavior lesson, students view a PowerPoint while simultaneously performing experiments in which heat transfer is demonstrated.  Students use cold beakers, ice cubes, light bulbs, and chemicals as they observe and record what happens when these materials make contact.
Students measure the heat absorbed by different materials and learn why engineers need to know how different materials story thermal energy when designing buildings. In this heat capacity lesson plan, students use a thermometer to measure the heat of materials.
