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!

Things are Heating Up - Thermal Physics Part 2
Fire up your physics class by assigning a worksheet on heat transfer. They explain in words the differences among conduction, convection, and radiation. They reveal their knowledge of transfer rates, convection currents, and electromagnetic waves.

Conduction, Convection, Radiation, Oh My!
Young scholars draw a line graph, and use graphing as a tool to discover more about conduction, convection and radiation. They should design their own experiment using heat sensitive paper to show they explain these 3 processes.

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.

Heat and the Second Law of Thermodynamics
More than a week's worth of investigation is provided in this source. Physical science stars experiment to describe specific heat, conduction, convection, and radiation. They also discover the relationship between mechanical and thermal energy.

In lab groups, young scientists place aluminum cans with a bubble-solution cap into different temperatures of water to see what size of bubble dome forms. As part of an atmosphere unit in preparation for learning about convection currents, or a matter unit when studying the density of gases, this is a fabulous fit!
3rd - 6th Science 22 Views 19 Downloads
In this thermodynamics worksheet, students learn about insulators and conductors. Students compare the three ways thermal energy is transferred: conduction, convection, and radiation. This worksheet has 22 matching, 1 multiple choice, 3 fill in the blank, and 4 short answer questions.

Where's the Heat?
Review heat transfer with your seventh graders and guide them in making a practical application. Learners use a paper cutout spiral to locate convection currents in the classroom and throughout the school. They record the temperature at different locations and consider the energy efficiency of the heating system.

The Magma Also Rises
Convection is thoroughly demonstrated using a model of Earth's mantle. Detailed background information is provided for the teacher, as well as a list of materials. Although a colorful and detailed worksheet is available for the class, there is no written procedure for the modeling activity.

Density and Pressure of a Hot Air Balloon
Using a dry cleaner bag and a blow dryer, create a hot air balloon! The materials list suggests obtaining one dry cleaner bag per student, but since this is probably inconvenient, consider doing this as a demonstration during a instructional activity on density, air pressure, or convection.

Earth: A Unique Planet
An entire unit's worksheets are included here in this earth science packet, with multiple learning styles addressed! Although the text isn't included, 6 reading guides are outlined with reading requirements indicated. Learners complete a model of earth's layers and take notes using fill-in-the-blank guides.

Example of Convection
Compare the density of different salt solutions and then observe currents that are caused by the difference. Set up a demonstration of dynamic equilibrium. The intent with these activities is to begin building understanding of density concepts as a preparation for learning about convection currents.

Convection and Wind
Students use water, beakers, hot plates, paper dots, and goggles to participate in a hands on activity where they see how a convection current creates wind. In this convection current lesson plan, students participate in a hands on activity to see how the hot water molecules move substances.

The Mathematics of Convection: Nature's Model for Energy Production
High schoolers conduct a series of experiments to investigate density, buoyancy and climate. In this math instructional activity, pupils design and build a hot air balloon to demonstrate convection. They research and write a paper about solar chimneys.

Hot Cans and Cold Cans
Students 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
Students 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.
