- Join to access all included materials
Students engage in three short, hands-on, in-class demos which expand students' understand of energy. First, using peanuts and heat, students see how the human body burns food to make energy.

Finally, students determine the effect that heat energy from the sun (or a lamp) has on temperature by placing pans of water in different locations.
