In this plate tectonic worksheet, students read scientific information about the transfer of heat energy and apply the knowledge to the convection of currents in the asthenosphere and how the heat is generated in the various layers of the earth. This worksheet is printable and the answers are not available.
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.
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.
Students explore weather by completing a worksheet in class. In this geology lesson plan, students discuss the traveling of heat through convection currents and complete a model activity using a beaker, water and hot plate. Students complete an Earth science worksheet and define vocabulary terms.
