A poster highlighting some sources of heat energy.
Print out this poster and use it to assist your students in understanding the different sources of heat energy.
Fire – The smallest fire can turn into a huge blaze that will produce massive amounts of heat energy.
Body – Our body contains enough heat energy to warm a cold glass of milk or another person when you hug them.
Sun – The biggest example of heat energy in our Solar System. The Sun’s heat warms up Earth and us.
Boiling Water – Boiling water contains heat energy hot enough to cook food.
Stove – Anything placed on a stove and warmed, whether a pot of tea or a frypan cooking bacon, also becomes a source of heat energy.
Toaster – A toaster radiates heat that turns a piece of bread into toast.
Heater – A heater in a home provides radiant heat energy to warm a house during cold winter months.
Lightning – A bolt of lightning contains enough heat energy to start a fire.
Also includes a poster with just pictures and two different brainstorming organisers.
