This Hands-On Science unit has over 50 pages that help students make sense of heat and temperature through a series of active participation lessons, demonstrations, and experiments. Your students will not only deepen their understanding of physics in these lessons, they will look forward to science and rave about it when their parents ask, “What did you do in school today?”
The unit consists of thirteen interrelated components that provide a complete picture of heat and temperature and how these phenomena behave. Each lesson can stand alone, so you can do some or all of them depending on your time and needs. They can also be implemented back to back or with breaks in between. The 13 modules will take about three weeks of instructional time if you use all of them. An overview and materials list accompanies each lesson along with detailed instructions and complete explanations of the results. Student activity masters are included as well and can be bound into a science notebook that the students use throughout the unit. Video links, photographs, and diagrams make this an easy-to-teach unit for you and a fun-to-learn activity for your students.
A Next Gen Science Standards alignment page and Common Core Math alignment pages are included. Many of the activities incorporate science, technology, engineering, and math for full STEM integration.
