National Standards for Grades 6-10


Includes six activities investigating the modes of heat transfer. The three experiments and teacher demonstration explore conduction, convection, and radiation. Students gain tactile evidence of heat transfer and measure temperatures to reinforce the concepts with data. They apply acquired knowledge in two class challenges in which they design, build, and test an Ice Preserver and a Solar Oven. Includes extensive background information for teaching lessons, assessment worksheets, problem sets, a rubric, and extension activities to support concepts. Allow 2-1/2 hours for experiments and several building hours and a test day for each of the two building challenges. Designed for 24 students working in groups of four.
