Use these simple exit tickets to have your students apply their understanding of thermal energy transfer. Students will engage in the NGSS Science and Engineering Practice of Developing and Using Models to show their depth of knowledge. There are three questions focused on conduction, convection, and radiation and exit ticket comes in three formats with varying levels of scaffolding. Use these at the beginning of a unit to obtain data on what your students already know, use them to wrap up a lesson, in science centers, or as a performance task at the end of your unit!

Heat Transfer






Kinetic Energy



NGSS Performance Expectation:

MS-PS3-4. Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.

MS-PS5-5. Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.

MS-PS1-4. Develop a model that predicts and describes changes in particle motion, temperature, and state of a pure substance when thermal energy is added or removed.

Cross Cutting Concepts (CCCs):

Energy & Matter

Cause & Effect

Systems & System Models

Science and Engineering Practice (SEPs):

Developing & Using Models
