Product Description
Have students observe a lava lamp to understand convection (thermal energy, heat) and density better! In this worksheet students will explain and draw the motion in terms of convection. Because it's pretty quick, we suggest using as a station in a stations day about convection. (Don't have a lava lamp? They're 10 bucks on Amazon!)

Earth/Space Standards: MS-ESS2-2 MS-ESS2-3 MS-ESS2-6
Physical Science Standards: MS-PS3-3 MS-PS3-6

Combine this resource with some of the following to make a day of stations:
Hands-On Convection in Gases Activity
Convection in Hot Air Balloons Reading
Density and Convection Reading
Convection Worksheet
