This is a 675 slide PowerPoint presentation with built-in class notes (red slides), challenge questions with answers, built-in quizzes, hands on activities, follow along worksheets, two page homework / classwork, answer key, lesson notes, and much more.
Note: This lesson is included in my larger Energy, Electricity, Magnetism, EM Spectrum lesson. I included it here for a reduced price and for keyword search purposes.
This PowerPoint begins having the students guess what TINSTAAFL means. A series of bizarre images help to increase the confusion before the TINSTAAFL There Is No Such Thing As A Free Lunch is revealed in a step by step process. A series of slides show how energy cannot be created or destroyed but can change form. A picture is presented, and then the forms of energy shown. The seven forms of energy are then discussed and each one is accompanied by several slides that include visuals. Lots of neat visuals and activities are presented for each form of energy that involve the class in discussion. A quiz then asks the students to name the form of energy when given a picture. Answers are provided after the quiz. The question is previewed before the answer is revealed so the teacher can call on students for answers. A series of hidden box games conclude this PowerPoint that have students guess the relevant picture beneath as each slide reveals more of the hidden picture. This is a really neat PowerPoint.
Heat Transfer: Convection, Conduction, and Radiation Portion includes...
This is a 100+ Slide PowerPoint with built-in visual quiz with answers about Convection, Conduction, and Radiation. Three great hands-on lab activities with built-in instructions and visuals, and built-in questions with answers. This PowerPoint also includes a video link to a neat demonstration. This PowerPoint begins with an image of convection conduction and radiation with pictures. Students are asked to create their own definitions of the each term using the picture as a clue. After the students share their definitions, a series of slide and boxes blocks out the term. A term will highlight yellow, students say "convection" and the term is shown. This gets students using the vocabulary. Convection is then described at the top of a slide in large 32 font text with images. A series of neat challenge slides have the students see convection in the mantle and answer some neat questions about continental drift (No knowledge of continental drift is really necessary as the exercise focuses on convection) Student determine the colored arrows that are incorrect from a group. Conduction and Radiation are also described with visuals. Several lab activities are provided for convection, conduction and radiation.
Convection lab investigates convection in fluid. Teacher preps the night before and places small metal chains into an ice cube colored with food coloring so that it will sink. Teacher also creates colored ice cubes of the same size without weight. Students drop both into water. If you don't have the chain to sink the ice cube, just having colored ice cubes will show convection and work fine.
A video link is provided that shows a tea bag rocket. Materials are a tea bag, plate, and lighter. Teacher rolls up tea bag into cylinder and twists top. Place tea bag on a plate and lights the "rocket" at the top. The tea bag will burn almost completely to the bottom and then rise to the ceiling. Video link shows this demonstration.
Convection Activity. Two clear containers, water, food coloring, ice cubes, metal chain (small) that is placed in water and put in freezer to create a sinking ice cube.
Convection Tea Bag Rocket (Optional) Tea Bag, Plate, Flame / lighter.
Conduction activity has student place a styrofoam cup and wax paper cup into two different containers. Students place weights in cup so they will not float and places thermometers in the cup. Teacher fills graduated cylinders with 100ml of boiling water and adds to container but not in cup with weights. Students record temp on spreadsheet and answer questions.
Conduction Activity. Table groups need two large containers, Styrofoam cup, wax paper cup, weights, thermometers. Teacher boils water and fills graduated cylinder with boiling water and transfers to large container.
Conduction Activity (Optional) candle, metal rod / plank, gummy bears. Directions for demo in slideshow.
Radiation activity has students fill two clear containers with gravel. Thermometers are placed in both. A lamp is placed over the gravel container and students record temperatures on a spreadsheet. Answers provided with visuals.
Radiation Activity. Strong light source / lamp. Two clear containers, gravel, thermometers.
(I usually cook up some food with a hotplate and frying pan - The convection currents always look cool in front of the screen / LCD projector image while I am moving through the slideshow.) Hot food at the end of the presentation is always a bonus for the students. A visual image quiz 1-10 shows various pictures and the students need to write down if it is convection, conduction, or radiation. The answers to the quiz are provided after. The question is revealed one last time before the answer is revealed so the teacher can call upon students. This is a neat PowerPoint that involves the students and is interactive. The labs are great and I'm sure will cover some of your standards.
This PowerPoint includes critical notes (Red Slides), exciting visuals, challenge questions, activities with directions and more. Text is usually placed at the top of the slide so it can be read from all angles of a classroom. Color coded slides, as well as a shade technique is used to increase student focus and allows the teacher to control the pace of the lesson. These PowerPoints are meant to be interactive as possible and ask many questions, provides built in review opportunities, explains directions to activities, and much more. Transition effects are never used.
