This activity contains a brief discussion (Temperature vs. Heat) about the differences between the concepts of temperature and heat.
The included laboratory procedure (Hot Stuff? Too Cool!) is an open-ended investigation. Student teams use various temperatures of water and “blank” thermometers to devise their own temperature scale.
