Product Description

This activity has a major wow factor! Fire and floating ghosts make for a really fun activity to show how convection currents move through the air. This activity is a little different than my other scientific argument activities. Instead of starting with a question and a prediction, this activity starts with the hands on activity.. I have all the students set up their tea bags in the launch area and then I light them one or two at a time. Lots of oohs and aahs.

What you get:

- Teacher presentation with directions to guide students through the activity

- Student reflection sheet to write their Claim, Evidence, and Reasoning

- Focused reading about convection to help students with their reasoning

Needed Materials:

Tea bags – I use Numi or Tazo tea – they consistently work well

Scissors

Sharpies

Paper cups

Matches or a lighter (for teacher use)

This activity is part of my C-E-R Physical Science Bundle

and

Heat Transfer Bundle
