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!

Interactive Notes-"Heat Transfer"
Learners explore heat transfer. In this temperature and molecule behavior lesson, students view a PowerPoint while simultaneously performing experiments in which heat transfer is demonstrated. Learners use cold beakers, ice cubes, light bulbs, and chemicals as they observe and record what happens when these materials make contact.

Methods of Heat Transfer
Eighth graders discuss the forms of heat transfer that relate to the human body. Discussion revolves around the ability of different designs of hats to change the rate of heat transfer to and from the body. Students then experiment with the material composition of a hat and its affects on the rate at which heat is transferred.

Keep It Cool
Students complete a science experiment to study insulation, heat transfer, and permafrost. In this permafrost study lesson, students design and test a soda insulator. Students graph their class data and discuss the results. Students discuss permafrost and make a hypothesis about temperature data with snow on the ground.

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. For 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 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.

"Heat Transfer and Ice Cream!"
Students analyze earth science by creating a frozen treat in class. In this heat transfer lesson, students discuss how matter is transformed from solid to liquid and liquid to gas when energy is removed from the equation. Students conduct an experiment in which they squish a bag full of ingredients with their bare hands in order to create ice cream.
