Where's the Heat?

Review heat transfer with your seventh graders and guide them in making a practical application. Learners use a paper cutout spiral to locate convection currents in the classroom and throughout the school. They record the temperature at different locations and consider the energy efficiency of the heating system. They meet with the maintenance department to discover what heating methods are used for school buildings. To conclude, investigators work in groups to craft a report.
