PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This journal activity will help students to compare the different methods of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. Once completed, this activity will fold up onto a single journal page.

What must students do in this activity?
-They must define each method of thermal energy transfer.
-They must draw multiple examples to illustrate each method of thermal energy transfer.
-They must complete a section with questions related to how thermal energy works.

There are TWO VERSIONS!
-One version has blank example boxes so that students may draw/color the examples that they choose.
-The second version had printed outlines of pictures that they can color and then add effects to. This version is works nicely if you are needing to get the lesson done quickly (since some students take forever to draw and color).

This download includes a LAB!
-Students can will use nails suspended from a piece of metal by wax and use the heat of a candle to observe conduction and how thermal energy moves.
-Students will also mave a spiral snake and use hot air to observe convection.
-Students will also use a heat to observe how thermal radiation moves outward in all directions from its source... they will do this using heat lamp and ice cubes. The conduction and convection parts of this lab require assembly of materials. There are videos links included in the PowerPoint that explain how they work.

Required Materials:
Wooden Block (2x4x4inches)
Hacksaw Blade
Candles (3 - 4 inches tall)
Nails
Spiral cut-out (included)
Aluminum Foil
String
Heat Lamp and/or Bunsen Burner
Ice Cubes
Small dishes
Timer
