To explain the three types of heat transfer, and be able to correctly classify examples from real-list as either conduction, convection, or radiation, and explain why.
This is an activity that 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 they read, out of textbook or review book, or website (given). This could also be done as notes to get background information. The second portion involves stations set up around the room that demonstrated each type of heat transfer. This can also be done as a seated activity with a powerpoint (included).
Students create a foldaway to illustrate and answer questions about each type of heat transfer. A template to create the foldaway is included, although you could make your own on blank paper.
Also included are pictures of the completed foldaway, which can be used to guide students.
You could easily substitute any other stations or demos that you have. This is a great way for students to quickly go from station to station, practice observation skills, and determine the difference between the three methods of heat transfer.
This lesson could be done to teach the three methods, as review or
assessment after, or reinforcement. The foldaway is a great display item for open house, bulletin boards, in journals, or just as is.
I was doing this lesson when the district director of science visited and she was very impressed!
