This is a very scaffolded worksheet designed to help students begin to use the CER structure to write a conclusion. Each step (Claim, Evidence, Reasoning) has a set of directions and a space for students to write each isolated step. Isolating each step also makes teacher feedback a bit easier and mo
In this lab, students will compare the temperature of water in jars wrapped in different material to determine which type of materials are thermal insulators and thermal conductors.
In my class, we had temperature probes that hooked up to computers. The temperature probe read the temperature of th
Two page lab for students to discover heat flow by conduction. This is the traditional lab done by physical science and earth science students - here are some of the procedures so you can get an idea:
1. Fill the insulated cup marked cold with cold water provided by your teacher. Quickl
This conduction lab goes with a unit on thermal energy transfer. In this lab students will use different materials to test which prohibits and which allow thermal energy transfer.
This product, along with many other great things, is included in my Energy Bundle as well!
At the beginning of every unit on electricity, it helps to discuss conductivity. This is a great lab for letting students investigate the differences between conductors and insulators. If you are able to extract a thick pencil lead, students can even observe a resistor (the graphite of the lead cond
This worksheet has 15 Earth Science Regents questions about the conduction lab activity. This makes a great homework sheet or in-class review.

Teachers may choose to implement this lab during the energy transfer and conservation unit. This activity involves minimal materials and provides students with a visual aid, teaching them about the process of conduction.
This worksheet is a template that I use for all experiments. It allows students a place to keep track of variables, data, results, and ideas.
This experiment has students place room temperature metal washers into hot water and room-temperature water to explore the temperature change of both object
This is a Lab Report sheet I typed up to go along with the conduction experiment found at this site: http://www.andybrain.com/sciencelab/2007/11/23/heat-conduction-with-water-balloon-and-candle/
The kids LOVED to do this and was a great way to build on radiation too.
Conduct science experiments in your classroom using your own conductivity probe. Students develop hypothesis and then collect and analyze data. Curriculum is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards.
