Students will learn about heating and cooling and then infer how hot or cold something is. They will learn about thermometers and how to use them to measure temperatures. This resource contains both Celsius and Fahrenheit pages.
Students will also learn about how to control temperatures in buildings and how insulation is used to keep hot things hot and cold things cold.
This resource can be used alone or in combination with your own resource. It is inquiry in nature and allows students the opportunity to explore, create and reflect on what they are learning about.
All sheets are self explanatory and no teacher directed lessons are needed. Opportunities for technology are included. There are numerous chances for assessment opportunities, some that even contain a rubric. A final unit test is also included. All answers are included as well.
