Don't have a convection box? It's easy to make your own... watch this YouTube Video
This is a HALF PAGE worksheet (make half the copies and cut in half) that students complete as the teacher demonstrates convection in a convection box and then in a convection tube (both available through science supply catalogs). This is appropriate for middle or elementary school students, not high school. Students use colored pencils to draw and label the currents, and then explain what is happening.
