Physical Science - Energy can be transformed from one form to another or can be transferred from one location to another.
Energy transfers from hot objects to cold objects as heat, resulting in a temperature change.
Grade 4 Concepts:
The addition of heat may increase the temperature of an object. The removal of heat may decrease the temperature of an object. There are materials in which the entire object becomes hot when one part of the object is heated (e.g., in a metal pan, heat flows through the pan on the stove transferring the heat from the burner outside the pan to the food in the pan). There are other objects in which parts of the object remain cool even when another part of the object is heated (e.g., in a Styrofoam® cup, very little of the warmth from hot liquid inside the cup is transferred to the hand holding the cup).
