New Review Give and Take
Heat-sensitive liquid crystal sheets are available in a variety of sizes and temperature ranges. Purchase a class set of hand-held sheets and color half of each with a silver permanent marking pen. Learners of light can hold them under a lamp and see that light is converted into thermal energy and that there is no change under the silver half since light is reflected away.

Convection in a Pan
Students watch a demonstration using a plastic bag and a hair dryer to create a hot air balloon. After the demonstration, they discuss the results and whether or not hot water behaves the in the same manner as hot air. They conduct their own experiments using soapy water in a pie pan and heating it with a candle.

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!

Hot Cans and Cold Cans
Young scholars investigate the physics of heating and cooling through conduction, convection, and radiation. Working in groups, they determine the best way to cool a can of water and warm a can of water. Temperature is taken at five minute intervals and they may use items provided to either cool the water or warm the water.

TE Activity: Hot Cans and Cold Cans
Middle schoolers work on problems in which they investigate conduction, convection, and radiation. They attempt to maintain the warmth in one can of soda while cooling the other as much as possible in a thirty minute period. They examine how engineers apply similar principles.
