Heat, Temperature, and ConductionLesson Planet
How does heat move from one item to another, even when the items are in different states of matter? Pupils experiment with adding washers to hot water and adding hot washers to room temperature water to observe the heat transfer.
6th - 8th Science CCSS: Designed
When the chemists who designed hand warmers were working, they had to consider how much heat they could give off to keep people warm — and not burn anyone in the process. How is this heat given off in a chemical reaction measured?...

Seeing Specific Heat and Latent HeatLesson Planet
What happens inside a melting solid? Prospective physical chemists observe a solid-to-liquid phase change at the molecular level using an inspired interactive. Pupils add heat to a close system, then monitor changes in kinetic and...

Specific Heat and Latent Heat in CondensationLesson Planet
There's more to melting than meets the eye! Junior physical chemists investigate the differences between specific and latent heats as a substance undergoes a phase change. Users remove heat from the system and observe changes in kinetic...

Flatworms-Observation of a Live PlanarianLesson Planet
For this planaria lab, 10th graders observe a live planarian and make observations about it's movements, it's handedness, it's size and the effects of light on the planarian. They design an experiment to observe the effects of light and...
