Students investigate calorimetry and set up equipment to measure calories. In this calorimetry lesson plan, students make a calorimeter and compare large amounts of heated water with small amounts to show the difference in calories. Students determine the calories in a cup of hot water and a cup of hot tea and determine which would be best to drink for a calorie conscious person.
