More on Conduction and ConvectionLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Why do some items feel colder when they are the same temperature? How should you keep your soda cold? What makes the wind blow? These are just some of the things middle schoolers discover when completing a lesson on conduction and...
The Intertropical Convergence ZoneLesson Planet
3rd - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Young scientists know it is hotter along the equator, but why is it also rainier? Through the process of completing two experiments and a worksheet, scholars discover the answer is the intertropical convergence zone. First, they...
Heat and the Second Law of ThermodynamicsLesson Planet
7th - 12th
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...
Thermal Energy Flow in MaterialsLesson Planet
6th CCSS: Adaptable
The sun sends the earth 35,000 times the amount of energy required by all of us on the entire planet, every day. The fourth lesson in the 10-part series looks at how light energy from the sun transfers into thermal energy. Scholars build...
Thermochemistry: Heat and Chemical ChangesLesson Planet
9th - 12th
What makes particles attract? Here, learners engage in multiple activities that fully describe colligative properties and allow the ability to critically assess the importance of these properties in daily life. Young chemists conduct...
The Mathematics of Convection: Nature's Model for Energy ProductionLesson Planet
9th - 12th
High schoolers conduct a series of experiments to investigate density, buoyancy and climate. In this math lesson, pupils design and build a hot air balloon to demonstrate convection. They research and write a paper about solar chimneys.
Why is Kettle Corn Cooked in Copper Pots?Lesson Planet
6th - 8th
The kitchen — it's not just for eating anymore! Specific heat is often a difficult concept to grasp, so give it context by relating it to cooking. Learners gain experience in the principles of thermal energy transfer by designing an...
