Thermal Physics / The Saga Continues - Heat Transfer
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!

Home is Where the Heat Is
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.

Heat and Density
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.

TE Lesson: Using Heat from the Sun
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.

Heat Transfer Demos
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.

Turning Up The Heat!
Pupils 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.

Heat And Heat Transfer
Pupils 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.

Heat - A Form of Energy
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.

Interactive Notes-"Heat Transfer"
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.

Taking the Heat
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.
