Product Description
This Concept Comparison contrasts thermal energy and temperature as they relate to heat transfer. It builds from middle school science concepts of mechanical energy, and an introduces specific heat capacity and the laws of thermodynamics.

The Concept Comparison Routine is used help compare and contrast key concepts. Specifically, students use like and unlike characteristics and categories shared and not shared by two or more concepts to better understand the overall concept. Students taught using the Content Enhancement routines earned higher total test scores than did students taught using the lecture-discussion method.

Personally, I use the Concept Comparisons and Frame Routines to figure out what I want to say and how I want to say it to students. It keeps my "Sage on the Stage" time limited to what fits onto a page (about 30-35 minutes of directed class discussion). This product includes the completed routines, and the student guides blanked except for vocabulary, scaffolding questions, and graphics already filled in.

It covers the following Florida Next Generation Sunshine State Standard Benchmarks: SWBAT
SC.7.P.11.1 Recognize that adding heat to or removing heat from a system may result in a temperature change and possibly a change of state.
SC.7.P.11.4 Observe and describe that heat flows in predictable ways, moving from warmer objects to cooler ones until they reach the same temperature.
SC.912.P.10.4 Describe heat as the energy transferred by convection, conduction, and radiation, and explain the connection of heat to change in temperature or states of matter.
SC.912.P.10.5 Relate temperature to the average molecular kinetic energy.
