Definitions of Conduction, Convection, and Radiation
There's quite a bit in this physical science packet. First, how is heat transferred? Learners read a brief explanation of conduction, convection, and radiation before identifying common occurrences (with pictures) as one of the three....

The Path of Least Resistance
Your class won't be able to resist this lesson on the path of least resistance, or rather, on conductors and insulators. Using two types of modeling dough, one that conducts and one that insulates, young electrical engineers construct...

More on Conduction and Convection
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...

Investigation: Heat Exchange
After a brief reading on conduction and home heating systems, middle schoolers design a comparison experiment of temperature change in both hot and cold water. They will need to write up their own lab reports even though the procedure...
