This is a GREAT 18-page booklet that guides students through experiments for the Georgia Performance Standard:
Standard: S3P1. Students will investigate how heat is produced and the effects of heating and cooling, and will understand a change in temperature indicates a change in heat.
a. Categorize ways to produce heat energy such as burning, rubbing (friction), and mixing one thing with another.
b. Investigate how insulation affects heating and cooling.
c. Investigate the transfer of heat energy from the sun to various materials.
d. Use thermometers to measure the changes in temperatures of water samples (hot, warm, cold) over time.
This version of the booklet is small enough to cut/paste into their interactive notebooks! Students will enjoy this booklet because it is a hands-on guide for experimenting to learn about insulators, conductors, friction, measuring temperature, and much more!
