In this middle or high school activity, students learn background on types of heat transfer such as conduction, convection, and radiation, and then are active learners as they create a foldable, and move around the classroom, seeing, observing, experiencing, and classifying the types of heat transfer and giving evidence for their responses. Throughout the course of the lesson, students create a foldaway to illustrate and answer questions about each type of heat transfer. This lesson could be done to teach the three methods, or as a review, assessment, or reinforcement.

This activity would be appropriate for middle school through high school to teach and/or reinforce or assess the three types of heat transfer. For the first portion of the lesson, students read from a textbook, review book, or suggested website, or do notes together as a class to review background information. In the second portion of the lesson, students rotate through stations set up around the room that demonstrate each type of heat transfer. This can also be done as a seated activity with a PowerPoint (included).

A template to create the foldaway is included, as well as instructions to make your own using blank paper. Also included are pictures of the completed foldaway, which can be used to guide students. The foldaway makes a great display item for an open house, bulletin boards, in journals, or just as is.
